Are all people in general going to be negative from time to time?
I've also found myself questioning if thinking positive is necessary for success and happiness.
I'm in kind of a bind because the more I read about thinking positive and being positive, the more I notice all the negative things people around me say, and now it seems to irritate me and bring me down more ever since I notice that most people only have negative things to say.
Then I started thinking - can't it be a good thing to be aware of what things might go wrong, so you can take precautions and make preparations early on to avoid those 'bad' things, while still making progress toward the positive goal?
When it comes to success, is being positive necessary or good?
I ask because I know some very 'positive' happy people who are broke and irresponsible , and 'negative' people who aren't into self-improvement at all and are very successful
What I'm really aiming for is happiness though, so if positivity is what creates happiness, then I'm ready to jump right in.
I'm not sure how to find positive people to surround myself with though, they don't seem to exist!
