Enhance Your Self-Discipline #6

Enhance Your Self-Discipline:

“An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside of the ship. Similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow it to get inside you.” -Goi Nasu

Exactly the way we train our bodies to endure and overcome physical pain, we must train our minds to tolerate and prevail negativity. What we consistently think and allow into our minds create the reality we live in. If you repeatedly allow other people’s negative view of the world to influence you, you’ll eventually see the world in the negative light. Life is a lot more productive and pleasant when you have an optimistic view, as heard from Elon Musk, “I’d rather be optimistic and wrong than pessimistic and right.”. Optimism promotes hope and motivation for us to pursue our dreams and goals, compared to pessimism encourages laziness and unambitious thinking. We must of course balance this type of optimistic thinking with a realistic outlook, otherwise you’ll lose grasp of reality. But don’t allow too much negativity to creep into your mind and weigh you down, for life can be a lot more enjoyable if you control what influences you.
