1agld1r.gifHow to Stop Negative Thinking in 7 Simple Steps

I thought he'd be pleased, I really did. But negative thinking can darken a cloudless day, bring down an uplifting event, and dampen a simple pleasure.

He'd won a lot of money and had been pleased...for a while. But now all Keith could say was, "Yeah, but now I have the added problem of whether to tell my friends or not. If I don't and they find out, it's bad. And if I do, they'll all expect me to share some with them!"

I suggested it wasn't a 'problem' but merely a consideration; that, all in all, he might as well be over the moon.

"Yeah, but I'm torn between paying off the mortgage and buying a Porsche."

Resisting the urge to throttle him (or ask for money), I got thinking about the true nature of negativity.

As someone once said: "Life's problems reveal who we really are!" and that's true; negative thinkers can "yeah, but" when things are going great. On the other hand, the more resilient of positive thinkers can remain upbeat when times are tough.

I sat and looked at Keith. A young man with intelligence (which was not best serving him), looks, and now money, and still he saw the old water jar as half empty. I've known people close to death with more zest and positivity.

Negative thinking can become a habit of mind, picked up from others. Or it can be little more than a failure of courage; because sometimes it actually takes guts to remain positive through setbacks. (Not that I considered winning money a 'setback'.)

I looked at him, thinking; he looked at me, wondering what I was looking at. Actually, I suppose negative thinking seems to have its advantages.

The devil you know

Thinking 'the worst', expecting failure and betrayal, seeing downsides where others don't, even seeing positives as negatives - all convey a kind of insurance policy. "If I expect the worst, then I won't be disappointed when it happens."

Another 'advantage' to negative thinking is the 'I told you so' syndrome. For some, it can feel more important to be proved right in their negative predictions than to have good things happen (and therefore be proved 'wrong').

Before I get too positive about negativity, here's a thought: The habit of thinking negatively doesn't just predict how likely someone is to become depressed, but also predicts how likely they are to suffer all kinds of other illnesses later on in life as well. (1) I'm not suggesting that negative thoughts alone produce illness, but they don't help.

We're going to look at what you can do to stop negative thinking. But first, let's examine a common fundamental mistake the pessimism-prone tend to make.

The most common negative thinking mistake

Keith was proud to describe himself as a 'realist'. Of course, anyone who strongly holds a belief think they are being 'realistic' in holding it, whether it involves green men from Mars or honest politicians.

The 'more realistic' proclamation is a favourite of cynics everywhere. And in a way they are right. But only because thinking negatively causes us not to try - or if we do try, to give up sooner - so the negativity itself influences results. Self-fulfilling prophecies really do happen. Research has even found that what we believe about our health can have more bearing on how long we live than our actual health. (2)

So, negative thoughts can plague us even when things seem to be going well: "It's too good to last!" My first tip has to do with how negative thinking distorts perception.

1) Stop thinking in extremes

Most of life isn't black or white, completely this or that, all or nothing. But negative thinking tends to view bad stuff in the extreme. For example:

  • Rather than not doing as well as I'd like on my test, I'm going to "fail completely!"
  • Instead of my business venture taking a while to get going, it's going to "crash and burn, leaving me ruined!"
  • Rather than just feeling a few nerves during my speech, I'm going to "die out there; they're all going to hate me!"

All or nothing thinking misses out the subtle shades in life. It makes us see the future in terms of dramatic disasters, failures, and catastrophes. Sure, disasters occasionally happen, but - contrary to the shrill pronouncements from newsstands - most of life consists of shades of grey.

The first step to overcoming negative thinking isn't to 'just be positive' all of a sudden, but to look for shades of grey. Say you've been worrying about a relationship. Rather than thinking: "It's going to be a disaster, I just know it is" or even "It's going to be perfect!", how about: "I expect there will be great bits, good bits, and not so good bits, like any relationship."

Write down what you have been thinking negatively about. Write the extreme negative statement that comes to mind. Now write three 'middle of the road' possibilities - not so exciting (or terrifying), but a more realistic take on what is actually more likely to happen. Giving your brain more options will reduce emotionality and allow you to think more clearly.

2) Stop over-generalizing the negative

Ask yourself: "If something bad happens, do I over-generalize it? Do I view it as applying to everything and being permanent rather than containing it to one place and time?"

For example, if someone turns you down for a date, do you spread the negativity beyond that person, time, and place by telling yourself: "Nothing ever works out for me!"? If you fail a test do you say to yourself, "Well, I failed that test; I'm not happy about it, but I'll try harder next time."? Or do you over-generalize it by telling yourself you're "stupid" or "can't learn anything!"?

And while we're on the subject...

3) Don't minimize the positive

Negative thinking stops people seeing the positive when it does happen. It's as if there's a screen filtering out positives and just letting in stuff that confirms the 'negative bias'. Magnifying setbacks and minimizing successes leads to de-motivation and misery.

Get into the habit of seeing setbacks as temporary and specific rather than as permanent and pervasive. We all tend to find what we look for. If you find yourself thinking negative thoughts about a person, for instance, get into the habit of balancing it out with one positive thought about them: "He's so insincere... Mind you, to be fair, he was helpful with that project...and he can be very funny..." The positive is there but you have to look for it.

4) Stop mindreading

Thinking negatively stops us relaxing with uncertainty. This can lead to 'mindreading'. "She hasn't texted me back; she doesn't like me!" or "He only said that to make me feel better, he doesn't really think that!"

Having to assign a meaning to something before you have real evidence makes you more likely to believe what you imagine without question. Holding off assigning (made up) meaning to an ambiguous situation is a key part of overcoming negative thinking.

When you become more positive (or just more comfortably neutral), you'll be doing more of: "I don't know why she hasn't texted me back yet..." You'll also be able to consider all possible reasons you can think of, not just the negative ones.

Here are a few to help you out:

  • She's forgotten her phone.
  • The phone's battery is dead.
  • She's run out of phone credits.
  • She's in a lecture.
  • She's on a plane.
  • She's out of range.

You get the drift. None of these are attributable to you and your likeability and all are as plausible as any other explanation.

5) Stop taking all the responsibility

If I put it down to 'other people' or 'luck' when something is good or successful and don't take any credit myself (even if the success was largely down to me), then I am externalizing the positive. Or I might externalize the quality of goodness from my friend when he does something kind by telling myself: "He only did that to win favours!" If you (or someone else) do something good or well, just accept it.

Negative thinkers also tend to do the opposite. They will internalize - that is, blame themselves - for all kinds of negatives that have little or nothing at all to do with them. Look at how much control and influence you really have over things that you tend to think negatively about.

6) Stop forcing your own rules on life

  • "If he loved me, he wouldn't do that."
  • "If I was a good mother, I wouldn't lose my temper."
  • "People shouldn't act like that."
  • "If I can't do this, then I must be really stupid!"
  • "He was late - he must be seeing someone else!"
  • "Saying that means he doesn't respect me!"
  • "My medical tests haven't come back and that means it's bad news!"

Sometimes known as 'must-erbation', making up tight rules as to how reality must or should be is a sure-fire way of feeling let down by yourself and others.

This isn't to say that we shouldn't expect anything from ourselves and others, but rather that the rules need not be unreasonably inflexible.

If you feel disappointed or let down, then you must have been expecting something else. Examine what it was and ask yourself: "Was my expectation too narrow?"

7) Stop making stuff up and believing it

Imagination is a wonderful thing, but not if you use it to scare yourself. Sometimes we need to be able to 'suspend the functioning of the imagination' (to quote Ernest Hemingway, no less). Looking at an upcoming event in your mind and negatively hypnotizing yourself by vividly imagining the worst is like using a hammer to paint a picture. Your imagination is there as a tool to be used constructively.By practicing imagining things going well, making it more likely, you'll be calmer in the situation and it will be a much better use of your time.

USE  FranceWeb,e-GlobalNetWork® TO YOUR ADVANTAGE

Before the Internet became popular, associations were the primary resource for businesspeople to gain industry insight. Now, as the Web gives your members access to unlimited sources, has your position as the "first source to turn to" been eroded? How do you provide continuing value to your members in the fast-paced Information Age and regain your association's position of authority and leadership?

FranceWeb,e-GlobalNetWork® is the largest sociotechnical system humankind has ever seen. It has changed the way we interact, learn and innovate. Almost daily it appears to change, improve and increase its hold on us.In fact , it has been created for anyone interested in virtual worlds and social networks whether commercialy, because you want to explore the possibilities such environments present, or for academic curiosity. It is the result of a major collaborative effort by members of the same business faculty, to identify and define solutions for the most frequently occuring issues and problems for small, medium and large businesses as well as for non-profit organisations.

ATTRACT NEW MEMBERS

With prospective members having more choices of associations to join (and less corporate budget to do so) and businesses carefully examining other solutions for their employees' professional growth, what compels someone to become a member of your association?

The most successful associations and professional societies inevitably are the ones that make a difference in their members' careers and businesses. Not the ones with the prettiest Web sites or the glossiest publications or the biggest annual conferences. The ones that make a difference.

In the 21st century, when the business climate turns on a dime, businesspeople need to be able to anticipate and move just as quickly. Information -- specifically, industry intelligence -- is key.

By making targeted, handcrafted, relevant newsfeeds a vital part of your member-support system, prospective members have a unique, vital and timely reason to affiliate with your association. You can make a difference for them, and that's exactly the reason to join a professional or industry association.

Help your members sift through all the news available and identify the valuable nuggets for them -- by providing an electronic industry news service, delivered by E-mail and posted on your association Web site.

And help your association regain its position as THE source to turn to.

Information Specifically, timely, industry-specific news about your association's business, from thousands of print and online sources.

Readers will be able to quickly locate, understand and use a specific tool or technique to solve a problem, rather than having to uncover a decision making tool buried within a textbook.

RETAIN MEMBERS

One of your goals as a member-based association is to be useful and relevant to your membership. Typically members are most interested in things that will advance their positions within your industry.

Custom, handcrafted news briefings directly fill that need. Help your members:

  • Remain abreast of current industry events,
  • Anticipate developing trends, and
  • Take advantage of the quickening pace of business.

In the 21st century, information is the key to success, and nothing is less useful than outdated news.

SRU-Electronics's custom news briefings can be hand-tailored to whatever your needs might be multiple feeds throughout the day, morning or afternoon feeds, weekly, whatever your needs and budget require.

Turn Strategy into Action, to deliver to add value for best results

SRU-Electronics reframes organisation culture to bridge the divide and improve results

Business educators, researchers and senior executives responsible for strategy, particularly in high-tech industries, will find insight and ideas to tackle market and business discontinuities on the 21st century.

Google and Fiat Chrysler team up for 'first of its kind' self-driving car project

The tech giant and car manufacturer announced merger of engineering teams in Michigan to integrate autonomous vehicle technology into hybrid minivan

In a move that marks a major step in the inexorable march towards making self-driving cars a reality, Google have announced what it is calling a “first of its kind” partnership with car manufacturer Fiat Chrysler.

The partnership, which was announced Tuesday, will see Google’s self-driving technology integrated into a Chrysler Pacifica hybrid minivan, a move which will more than double the testing fleet of self-driving vehicles that Google operates.

Tech companies such as Google, Uber and Apple, as well as chip maker Nvidia, have all been working toward autonomous vehicle technology in competition with both each other and car manufacturers. BMW, Audi, Ford, General Motors and Mercedes-Benz are among more than a dozen automotive outfits working on the technology.

But Google’s alliance with Fiat Chrysler marks the first time two companies have come together from opposite sides of what is often a cultural, as well as technological, gulf – though Elon Musk’s Tesla can be seen as a sort of hybrid.

Engineering teams from Google and Fiat Chrysler will work together at a facility in southern Michigan, according to a press release. Engineering responsibility will be shared between the two companies in the construction of 100 specially designed Pacifica minivans which will be fitted with Google’s automation equipment.

“FCA has a nimble and experienced engineering team and the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan is well-suited for Google’s self-driving technology,” John Krafcik, the CEO of Google’s self-driving car project, said in the press release. “The opportunity to work closely with FCA engineers will accelerate our efforts to develop a fully self-driving car that will make our roads safer and bring everyday destinations within reach for those who cannot drive.”

Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat Chrysler, said in the release: “The experience both companies gain will be fundamental to delivering automotive technology solutions that ultimately have far-reaching consumer benefits.”
