Often we find ourselves in a negative environment for a short time or sometimes even for a longer period of time. The best example of this is unemployment. In this economic situation, when everyone loses their job, people often become negative. Some people who lose their jobs find a new job within a short time, while others have to wait. Some people live optimistically in order to get a job one day, while others fall into depression. However, studies show that optimistic people have more success. This means that a person who does not give up hope will find a job faster than someone who is frustrated.
The frustration and depression are reflected in the cover letter and cause the employer to reject a job. An employer can easily distinguish a person with low self-esteem from a person with high self-esteem. A person with low self-esteem has lower productivity. So why would a company hire a person who is less productive and makes a loss? Being a negative person also makes you look for the wrong job opportunities and miss out on even more jobs. Instead of falling into a depressed state, stand tall, take things by the scruff of the neck, and do not give up hope.
A good technique to stay positive in a negative environment is to write down the positive things that come to mind or that exist in your life. Do this on a daily basis. For example, write down the names of the people you love, any possessions you have acquired through hard work over the past few years, and so on. Also write down at least one positive thing you did that day. This will make you feel that you are not useless. You can do something good for the world. This feeling is important to stay positive in a negative environment.
On days when you might become pessimistic, spend more time doing outdoor activities that interest you. You may be a little hesitant to go out at first, but once you get involved in outdoor activities, you will start to think positively. For example, if you like playing badminton, you should play badminton for at least two hours every day. Imagine that you have a holiday and during that holiday you would pursue your interests and hobbies. Engaging in your interests is not a waste of time, it is useful.
If you follow these few tips, you can definitely stay positive even if you are in a negative environment.
