When you're going the right way others may be negative.

Updated: Jul 30, 2023



First things first... Why should you care?

Our emotional state dictates the quality of our life. The 30 Days of Positivity Challenge is a daily personal challenge designed to condition the mind and body to maintain a positive emotional state. Our mindset contributes to 80% of our success. So, this challenge forces you to reprogram your mindset for success. When we're in a good mood and have a positive mindset, the probability of us being more productive, having better relationships, and making more money goes up. On the other hand, when we're in a bad mood and have a negative mindset, the opposite tends to occur.

Imagine living in a mansion but you're always upset, stressed, anxious, or sad. On the other hand, imagine living in a townhouse but you're always peaceful and happy. Your quality of life has everything to do with how you feel about yourself and the world around you. Your focus becomes your future. So, focus on nurturing a positive emotional state. Our feelings give us clues about the state of our emotions and environment, and tell us if we're progressing in the right direction. Progress equals growth. This challenge helps you to grow positive feelings to attract positive people and things into your life.

Let's get started with today's challenge!

Let's Get To The Point

Sometimes negativity is an indication that you're going in the right direction. Other people may want you to fail because they're insecure about their life. When we're vulnerable (personally or professionally) we invite the possibility of both praise and criticism. How you handle both will determine your emotional state.

Opposition and criticism can be a good thing when interpreted correctly. A person's approach can tell you a lot about the intention of the opposition or criticism. Sometimes, people respond with opposition because they lack perspective. In these situations, there may be an opportunity to educate them and clarify your perspective. In other situations, people respond with negative criticism, because they want to boost themselves by getting a reaction from you. In these situations, there may be an opportunity for you to establish a boundary for what type of feedback is acceptable. Regardless of the reason, there is opportunity in opposition.

Praise doesn't necessarily mean you're going in the right direction. People may praise you because they're too afraid to give you constructive feedback. That can be just as harmful because without feedback you don't grow. Think about a situation where someone gave you negative feedback. Your challenge today is to answer this question: How can you grow from the feedback you've received?

Donnie Thomas:

I developed a real estate investment model for wealth to provide beginner and intermediate investors with the tools that will help them to navigate the real estate investment process from beginning to end.

Donnie Thomas:

And I remember when I got my first heckler, I was so distraught and I spent so much time trying to convince this person of the benefits of the model until it occurred to me that my focus was in the wrong direction. Because there was so many more people emailing me and DMing me and contacting me to let me know the positive impacts that the model has already had in their lives and all for the cost of dinner.

Donnie Thomas:

And even today, I'm still being contacted by people that are being positively impacted by the model. So whatever your passion, whatever your goal, continue to drive, continue to grow, and continue to put life in the world. Peace.
