3 Steps to Turn Negativity into Productivity



This is a question I find myself often asking. It is easy to feel overwhelmed, annoyed, frustrated, or just simply unhappy with the situations we are in.

But it doesn’t have to be.

Negativity eats away at you and can bleed into every aspect of your life as quick as a blink. Before you know it, you are feeling down, distressed, and just outright negative about everything.

But you have the power to change this! Don’t let the negativity win…turn it to productivity…here’s how:

Ask yourself these questions:


1) Why are you here?

Why are you in the situation you are in? What has brought you here? Why are you feeling blue about it?

Understanding why you are where you are and how you got there is the first step to change.

Feeling annoyed and frustrated with your job? Why are you working there? What events have brought you to this place in this time and what are your motivations for showing up?

Write those down.


2) Where do you want to be?

Typically, when we are feeling down or frustrated about something or being negative, it is because we would rather the situation be different.

Ideally, what would you change about your situation?

Would you have a different job? Would you be in a different location? Would you be doing different activities?

Really think about what is exactly causing you to feel this way and what the best possible case-scenario could be that would make you NOT feel negative.

Write this down. (be detailed!)


3) What ACTIONS can you take to go from stage 1 to 2?

Big or small. Long-term or short-term. Easy or difficult.

Really think about things you can actually do to shift you from where you are at in stage one, to where you want to be in stage two.

Make these actions achievable. What steps can you take right now to start moving in the right direction?

What steps can you take each day to make progress?

Plan out each little or large step until your goal is reached and DO IT!

Write this down….and turn your negativity into productivity.


Now you have your game plan, your goals, your future. Right there in front of you. On paper.

It is real and it is attainable…now GET THERE!
