IDENTIFYING NEGATIVITY

CHAPTER 1

HOW DID YOU GET HERE?

Being miserable is a habit; being happy is a habit; and the choice is yours. ~ Tom Hopkins

Oh, the life of a child; lacking restrictions or inhibitions, willing to try anything and everything, reminding me of one thing: a lack of clutter. If there is anything that’s symbolic of childhood, it is the immense freedom with which a child conducts his or her affairs, the curiosity and simplistic nature that characterizes childhood.

Sadly, as a child matures he comes to understand the ‘subjective value’ of clutter and it all begins when the child first comes in contact with failure- at exams, in friendships and relationships.

You see, as one layer after another of our strengths are peeled off, we become inept at living from a place of mental strength- thinking that the only way out is to be weak mentally. As we become weaker and weaker, we begin to let in thoughts that could never help us progress, thoughts which stagnate us begin to take hold of our minds. The sad part of this is that the more these thoughts take hold, the easier it is for thoughts of that same magnitude to come in, which is why you wonder how someone who is supposedly talented and capable suddenly becomes incapable of achieving anything which is remotely great.

But the good news is that we don’t have to remain here. We can take a step forward and although it feels impossibly hard to do so, it is very possible, not just so, but is also very liberating. You don’t have to stay here.

Even if at first, the only thing you can do is take a break from these thoughts for a couple of moments before going back to them, don’t castigate yourself- after all, no one blames a child for falling down after standing up for the first time. Take it one step at a time- take a break from the negative mindset till you can let go of the crutches of such thoughts- and then fully live in positivity. 

In this matter, trace yourself back to childhood and live from there, develop confidence in your own abilities to undergo a cleansing and a removal of all that isn’t supposed to be a part of you, till you are left with only the real, the true, the valuable.

Exercise 1

Reflect on yourself and on how you got to where you currently are. Write down whatever comes to mind.

Which aspects of your life do you need to take a break from living in anxiety/negativity?

CHAPTER 2

DO YOU REALLY NEED TO BE ANXIOUS?

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it. ~ Groucho Marx

Gosh, there is so much to be anxious about, so many things to think about and issues to handle. Do you feel this way?

For a lot of people, the most logical step to take is to get anxious over these issues- in terms of their careers, relationships, health, family and every other aspect of their lives.

The first step out of anxiety is to be honest with yourself as you answer this question: ‘Do you really need to be anxious?’ If you would be sincere with yourself, you would discover that being anxious hasn’t helped you one bit on your path to achieving greatness. Instead, it has hindered you over and over again- like that toxic relationship which never benefits you but instead, keeps you on one spot throughout life. This is not the place to be.

Look into your life and examine those areas of your life where you seem to be more productive, contrasting them with those in which you are least productive. It is very likely that in those areas which you boast of great productivity, you are likely to be less worrisome or have a less anxious state of mind. Amazing, isn’t it? It is those areas in which we have the least progress that we tend to have the most worries and shouldn’t this be a pointer to the fact that this state of mind is unhealthy? Well, you finally get the drift, anxiety in itself, blocks progress. It slows you down and prevents you from moving ahead at the speed in which you would have, had you been in a more stable state of mind.

This chapter helps to mainly convince you about how negative anxiety can be. I think it is needed because some people have come to believe that anxiety is not harmful, or that it isn’t toxic, in fact, some see it as helpful, because it makes you feel like you are ‘doing something’, namely being lost in deep thought.

Newsflash: It isn’t all activity that’s profitable- and if anxiety is placed on a profitability scale, it wouldn’t rake in any profit; rather it would end up causing a lot of loss.

Now that you are convinced about the negativity of anxiety, I would like to engage you in the exercise below.

Exercise 2

What mental picture do you have of anxiety?

——————————————————————————————————————————-

From your perspective, is anxiety profitable/ unprofitable? (State your reasons)

——————————————————————————————————————————-

Which areas of your life are you the most productive?

———————————————————————————————————————————

Which areas of your life are you the least productive?

———————————————————————————————————————————

Do you want to stop being anxious?

CHAPTER 3

IDENTIFYING THE ROOT CAUSES OF ANXIETY

The more you feed your mind with positive thoughts, the more you can attract great things into your life. ― Roy T. Bennett

I sincerely hope that in the chapter above, you answered ‘Yes’ to the last question, meaning that you want to get out of that state of anxiety, because if you are unwilling to stop being anxious, there’s really nothing much that can be done. So, take time out to certify that you are ready to begin this journey.

Now that we are on the same page, we will begin to talk about the root causes of anxiety, dissecting all of the areas in which anxiety has effects on our lives and freeing ourselves of this negative mental state.

Follow me on this thought pattern and you are likely to identify yourself in at least one of the following scenarios:

You are stagnated in your career/disturbed about lack of progress at work and so you are anxious

You are having some troubles with your relationships (parents, siblings, friends, boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife, children), making you live in a perpetual state of anxiety.

You have so many responsibilities in your life which you ought to take care of, and as such juggling them is a bit difficult for you. This places you in a state of continued apprehensiveness

Your environment makes you uneasy, or makes you downright sick! So sick that you end up
