3. Upload:  Take 2 minutes a day three times a day to be positive, to let go of any negative thoughts and beliefs.  Here is a simple but powerful exercise you can do almost anywhere.  An exercise that will help you build greater mindfulness, enhanced focus, improved resilience, ideation.  Schedule your day with blank time, time between meetings, time between commitments where you can simply recharge.  Science has documented the powerful benefits of blank time to cognition, health.

Negativity is a box that traps our potential; escaping the negativity box is critical.  The imperative to be relentlessly solution focused is written on the walls of our lives, organizations and society.  Negativity traps us in pattern of thinking and feeling that can keep us stuck in ways we cannot even begin to imagine. We inherit negative beliefs, we are taught negative beliefs, we create negative beliefs, and sometimes we just pick up negative beliefs from the good opinion of others or the plethora of fear based negative news that surrounds us. Mirror neurons transmit our negative feelings to others and their feelings to us.  We get stuck in a negative mindset which appeals to our reptilian brain, our most primal instincts, and clouds our ability to see opportunities, develop solutions and build an important bridge between what is and what can be.

Science now tells us that our brains are set to automatic negative; a default pattern from our days fighting predators in the cave.  A default pattern we need to reset, as it will not take us forward. Negativity that puts a lid on our greatest potential and erodes our sense of happiness and well-being. Negativity is an emotional virus that traps our potential, erodes our communication and collaboration, destroys our relationships and impacts our ability to find opportunities and solutions.

The imperative to reset the individual and organizational GPS is critical. Start now by taking three simple steps that can help you escape the negativity box.  Delete-Reboot-Upload!

    What a timely post! I really need this right now. Great advice, Irene. First of all, I had no idea that our brains are set to automatic negative by default. That must be why I’m feeling depressed most of the time. I especially like your “upload” step. It’s true that we are so busy everyday that we go from one task to another and we overlook that fact that we need a few moments between tasks to charge up again. Or just to think and reflect. I will really work on using your Delete-Reboot-Upload strategy.

      Hi Linda: Thanks so much for your great feedback and comments! I believe that the realization that our brains (all our brains) are automatically set to negative no matter how optimistic we are is powerful. Our ability to reset the internal GPS, is critical and YOU are so right it starts with being conscious of negative thoughts and energy drainers.

      Delighted you enjoyed the post! Please share it. The individual and organizational imperative to become solution focused is critical.

        It IS interesting that our brains are automatically set to negative. As you said, learning to “reset” to the positive is critical. Focusing on solutions rather than blame is one of the leadership hallmarks. It keeps us moving in the right direction of growth and positive energy.
