I did have a quiet chuckle when I saw the phrase “Stay Away From Drama And Negativity” posted on a social media site recently.
This is because it has probably been a constant running theme first in TE Live and now in Plus 1 Daily and is something that cannot be stated strongly enough.
If you allow drama and negativity into your life they will grow and intertwine around everything else in your life, suck the life force out of your positive endeavors and leave you no time to concentrate on worthwhile activities which will lead to you fulfilling your goals.
You will become trapped in a cycle of destruction where your focus is on other people – in all likelihood people you don’t even like or respect.
You will spend time listening to what they say and write, feel compelled to reply on social media sites and be consumed in their lives. Even worse you are now allowing these people to set your own life agenda. Where is the sense in that?
There is a simple solution to all of this…Stay Away From Drama And Negativity.
If you see them coming your way then cross the road to avoid them and if they turn up at your house then slam the door shut in their faces.
Instantly gain a Plus 1 for saying no to these evil twins and gain another for using the time you now have to further your own goals.
Don’t worry about Drama and Negativity…they will already have found a new victim to welcome them in with open arms.
One exception to the above rule: If you make your living in the worlds of film, TV or the stage then avoiding drama may not be a good thing!
