I want to continue with beneficial thinking. It is sad how many have accepted the idea that a negative attitude brings a disastrous outcome and needs to be avoided at all cost.
Look at it as a life preview of sort depicting a favourable or non-favourable outcome.
“A positive moment can be just as detrimental to your well-being as a negative one.” ~Tricotomas
Furthermore, positive and negatives cannot exist without each other. As mentioned, they are coupled in order to take action. The two terms; positive and negative, are rather misleading and it would serves us better if we would see them as an acceptive or rejective response (inflating and deflating). You can be in a mildly positive situation when something better comes along and lifts you up higher. Lets say a friend comes over and lifts your spirit. Positive! And now while conversing with your friend, a close relative whom you have not seen for a while shows up unexpectedly at your door wanting you to attend a concert with him. Even better! In fact one can conclude that the first event that was trumped by the latter was demoted to a negative. The latter – a close relative, was accepted over the company of your friend. Was this a positive or a negative response? Wrong question! We should be asking whether or not our decision was a beneficial one.
Positive and negative are simply an accepting or rejecting response system to an event or stimuli. Happiness may be stirred up by any given event but it does necessarily bring lasting joy into your life. A positive moment can be just as detrimental to your well-being as a negative one. Ironically, they can also bring you long-term benefits. So think beneficially because sometime positive is bad and negative is good.
