Negative Produces Negative

How can we get a positive result from a negative? We can't! It is impossible for a negative to produce a positive because a negative takes something away. Like esteem and confidence.

If we say, "BAD DOG!!" On a daily basis , can we really expect our dog to be good natured, happy and secure? Would we ask our dog, " Why can't you be a good boy like our neighbors dog? "

I know None of us would talk to our pets like that! Right?

Words are powerful and paint pictures. Positive or negative.
Shaming anyone and talking down will never uplift our pets or ourselves.
We will become what we speak and believe.

A friend was excited at losing three pounds in a week. She worked hard and committed every day! But the more she thought about it her excitement waned. Someone else in the challenge lost five pounds, which turned her smile upside down!

"Why couldn't you do better!?" she scolded. ... "You need to work harder."

Do you see the connection to the "BAD DOG" dialogue? Negative talk and tone can't produce a positive affect ! But positive words uplift and build.

Now here's a happy little fella! What a difference love makes!

Negative takes something away. Positive adds. It is as simple as basic math. Never compare to someone else. Instead, give yourself an "Atta Boy--or girl" just like you would give your beloved pet a pat and sweet words.

Thanks for stopping by and i believe in YOU!
