Converting negative energy into positive

You’ve done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.” – Ralph Marston

Here, I’m going to do a quick throwback to my high school physics to drive my point home a little bit deeper. The law of conservation of energy states that “the total amount of energy in a system remains constant over time”. In essence, energy can neither be created nor destroyed: it can only be transformed from one state to another. So you can transfer electrical energy to heat energy as in your cooker at home or chemical energy to electrical energy as in your batteries.
The point here is, you get a lot of different vibes from the world around you. Some negative, some positive. The truth is, you don’t need anything but positive energy in your life. If you think negative thoughts, you’ll yield negative results. Think positive thoughts and yield positive results. The only way to convert negative energy to positive is to be a positive thinker. When you get any words, reactions or attitude from anyone that brings you down or kills your morale, look for the positive side of it to encourage yourself and focus on that. No matter how minute or ridiculous the positive side seems, focus on it and don’t let yourself be bogged down by the negative.
Don’t get deceived by the school of thought that says focusing on the negative is being ‘realistic’. You can be realistic by thinking of how to remedy the situation and make it better or totally eliminate it. Doesn’t mean you’re not being realistic, you’re just working on a plan to convert that energy for your sanity. That in itself is a positive thing and should make it easier for you to focus on being happy.
Conclusively, negative energy CAN be converted. Actively train your mind to see the opportunities or positive side of every situation and you could significantly alter the course of your life.
