"Negativity Is Poisonous" Motivational Canvas Art by IKONICK
Have you ever noticed that when you're having a bad day everything seems to go wrong? As soon as that one little thing kick-starts your bad mood, everything else that happens that day is destined to go just as badly. Maybe it's reading an email with bad news or oversleeping and falling behind on your schedule before you begin. However it starts, it frames the mind to perceive everything that follows in a negative light.
That's called a confirmation bias. Your mind is already made up, so everything else that happens is seen as further confirmation to prove it right. We see it a lot in how people form their political stances, but when it comes to your daily outlook, it's just as dangerous.
Why shut yourself off from the possibility that things could turn around? The day is long. Why let a bad morning ruin the rest of it?
The same principle applies to the people you surround yourself with. If your four closest friends are cynical and negative, chances are you're going to be the fifth. It could be a significant other, a business partner, a long-time friend, or even a family member. If negativity rules their lives, it will spill over to those closest to them.
Never let someone else dictate your happiness.
Whether it spurs from your own thoughts or the mood of somebody else, negativity is poisonous. It infects everything and everyone around it. Remember that the next time your day starts to take a turn for the worse. View every moment as a new chance to have a GOOD day. Remember it the next time someone tries to bring you down to their level. The better you can recognize negativity, the better you can avoid it.
Don't get sucked into a confirmation bias. Don't let negativity spread, and infect your day. Choose to see the positive. This officially licensed Smiley canvas wall art is your reminder to avoid that hazardous mindset.
Negativity draws us in and distorts everything we perceive. In those moments, take a step back, look at this piece, and choose to see the sunny sky instead.
Have a nice day.
