Beware of negative influences

Beware of that insidious disease known as ‘negativitis’. It is as pervasive as the common cold, but far more damaging in the ambitious travel of yoga to attain wisdom. It destroys, mutilates, cripples, and corrodes the human spirit. Those infected by it are broken men and women aimlessly wandering along. Be aware of the people who may motivate to skip classes or practice in your own way. This is ultimately half baked practice and this has all the possibilities to put you into troubles. The people with negative attitude are like flat champagne, without any sizzle. So, how do we inoculate ourselves against such a harmful disease? It was only after learning about the horrible effects of getting drunk that people began to give it up on many occasions for many factors. It may be wise to do the same here.
A negative attitude is self-defeating. We won’t find solutions to life’s problems by looking for someone or something to blame. Those who say, "Positive thinking doesn't work for me," have got it backwards. It’s not positive thinking that has to work; but it we who have to work for our success. We have to work at appreciating what we have instead of moaning about what we lack. If we could practice the ultimate positive attitude with the belief of attaining success can lead us to ultimate success we are focusing at.
