Limitation of positive thinking
It is true that having a positive thinking mind may be a booster to being successful. However, positive thinking is with limitation. What I mean is that, when you talk of negative thinking, people often conclude that you are referring to the enemy of progress.
Those who think like that may be correct in a way, but not in all the way. For example, one does not envisage bankruptcy in business, but it does happen, doesn’t it? If for instance one of the line managers in an organization suggested a caution on reckless budgeting to avert loss of capital, many in office may begin to see him/her as prophet of doom. That was a negative thinking and pronouncement. Had the management listened and applied caution, the act of bankruptcy would have been averted.
What is the point here? Some time, negative thinking serves as useful tool , consciousness in life and business. Any attempt to ignore negative thinking sometime simply mean that you are not realistic to your self in whatever you want to do.
Take more examples: No two married people wants to be divorced, but it happens .
We can go on and on . Hence, we balance our views by accommodating harmless negative thinking to avoid being hypocritical .
