Happiness and negativity are both a bit like viruses, when we’ve hung around someone infected with one of these we’ve all noticed how contagious it is!
Even more significantly, researchers have found that happy people get an extra 10 years of happy, healthy life compared to negative people. This important discovery means it’s time to take our happiness seriously.
I suggest starting by making a list of those people who bring out the best in you and those who don’t. Then, rather obviously, hang out with those on list one, and avoid spending time with those on list two as much as you can. All sounds pretty easy, but what if those human black holes on list two are people you share an office, a house, or even worse, share genes with? Then avoiding them just isn’t an option…
Then you need a strategy for how to deal with this. On my free Introduction to NLP & Coaching sessions I talk about this, and other things, and we will learn a strategy for dealing with other people. Book your place here… Hope to see you there!
