The Seven Major Negative Emotions (To be avoided)

I stumbled across someones blog today ... it was written about me and The Secret, and 4 nameless people made negative comments - all claiming to understand The Secret and live it in their lives.

Teachers down throughout all generations have warned us about gossip, hearsay, the naysayers, the muck rakers ... generally those who take delight in pulling their fellow man down. You see, in life some people only get up by pulling others down - they appear to get some satisifacton by seeing others fail rather then direct their energies into lifting up their fellow man.

My father, now in his 70's, spent his life working hard and earning a living off the land. He told us 7 kids that before we speak we should always ask ourselves 3 questions:

  1. Is it true? (not is it true because some else told me, that's gossip, but is it really true - if not, don't say it)
  2. Is it helpful? (If it is not helpful don't say it)
  3. Will it hurt them or someone else? (This is the hardest one for most people, if it will hurt someone don't say it. If it is about someone else and doesn't build them up, don't say it!!)

Wouldn't this world be a different and amazing place if each person asked those questions before they said or wrote something. We wouldn't have any of the negative crap on tv, radio, newspaper, internet ... we would all know a peace never before understood in this world.

Napoleon Hill said that there are 7 Major Negative emotions to be avoided at all costs. Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time. And like attracts like - many people do not realise that as they project out negative stuff to others, that's ALL they can get back. It is also wonderful that as we project out positive emotions to other people, that is exactly what we get back to.

A perfect example is that a woman who worked for me recently got very bitter and angry because she was used to getting everything she wanted - this one time she never, so she told me that she would do everything she could to destroy me. Sadly, this woman has had 2 breast cancer scares within 12 months - those who seek to destroy, destroy themselves because that is the Law of Attraction!

Here are the 7 Major Negative Emotions to be avoided:

  1. Fear
  2. Jealousy
  3. Hatred
  4. Revenge
  5. Greed
  6. Superstition
  7. Anger

Hill went on to say, "The presence of a single negative in your conscious mind is sufficient to destroy all changes of constructive aid from your subconscious mind."
