Why is the default feedback mechanism for people to be negative. We don’t learn to improve by receiving constant negative feedback day in and day out. Psycologists and animal trainers both agree that the way to implement a change is through positive feedback. Yet if we receive feedback from 10 people and 9 are overwhelming positive but one was negative why do we only focus on the negative one?
The same goes for the news that we read, stories of war, devastation or financial collapse get more attention that the positive human interest stories. Look at social media, when there is a there is a post about an important topic, controversial or not there is always tons of negative feedback. Why is it that people find it so easy to tear someone apart from their keyboard yet they would never say the same thing to someone’s face?
Try for just one day that if you have nothing good to say then say nothing at all. Find every reason to give someone positive reinforcement, even if it’s something small like holding the door open for you. These little ripples of positive energy is exactly what the world needs right now. Whether Mahatma Gandhi said it or not, “be the change you want to see in the world” is a great quote to live by.
