The Dangers of Toxic Positivity

Beware of toxic positivity.

Having a positive outlook on life is a great thing, and it should be encouraged…

However … being too positive can actually work against you if you aren't careful.

Here’s the deal…

It's one thing to be positive and optimistic about your situation...

But if you let this positivity convince you to feel good about things you shouldn't...

It prevents you from taking action...

...and it starts to replace the truth.

That's when you've entered the toxic positivity zone.

If you don't identify and eliminate this behavior immediately...

You have zero chance.

Here's the truth...

You can't truly feel good about your body if you don't take care of it.

You can't truly feel good about your career path if you don't work hard and execute at a high level.

You can't truly feel good about your relationships if you put 0 effort into improving them.

...even if you try to convince yourself and others that you do.

You know the truth … and lying to yourself about it is delusional … not “healthy.”

So what is toxic positivity?

It's accepting a low standard for yourself and learning to be happy with whatever the fuck life gives you.

Is that really what you want?

I know I don't...

...and I'm willing to bet that you don't either.

…and if you do that’s weak ass shit.

You know it too…

Otherwise, you wouldn't be reading this right now.

So be positive...

Hope for the best.

Work for the best.

But don't let that positivity get in the way of the real truth.

Don’t lie to yourself…

…you will never truly feel great about yourself until you actually go out to build yourself into someone you can be proud of.

There is no hack, shortcut or course that will get you around that reality.
