Negative Consequences

Who needs ’em!  Who wants ’em!  Negative consequences, that is.  Hey, we have enough of a challenge in our lives without adding to the burden by creating negative consequences.

So…don’t!  Simple…huh?  Not so fast!  If it were so simple, then why do so many people live their lives with a series of negative consequences being the result?

Well, the truth about consequences is in how you think.  If you fear certain consequences, inevitably you will get a negative result.  Either you won’t do whatever it was that you feared or the concern you had about getting a negative result, if you did do what you feared, results in just that…negative consequences.

On the other hand, if you don’t worry about a negative outcome, but presume (think) the outcome will be positive it inevitably will be.  It’s just a fact of life.  If you think positively and don’t even consider the consequences of a negative outcome, all will usually be well.

Of course, all of this presumes whatever it is you are wanting to do is legal, moral and ethical.  If not, you can always expect negative consequences down the road no matter how positively you think.

Final point…If you fear before you do, it will create negative consequences after you’re done.
