    I was reminded of something today that is one of the biggest issues I see in companies I audit… Negativity.. and Negative People.

    Negativity is the root of many enterprise issues.  It is very expensive, possibly costing companies billions of dollars each year.

    I have conducted hundreds of audits across the fortune 1000, and there always seems to be one or two people who you encounter during the audit that ooze negativity. …. “we can’t do that”… “management does not give me the capability to change that”…. “that will never work”… “write it up… will not change a thing.. I have no authority”

    Change in life.. in an organization, in an individual,  can only come when we shed the negative opinions, negative personalities, and negative people.  Negativity sucks away energy.  If part of the negativity stems from ones attitude or perspective, one needs to commit to at the beginning of each day and each activity to find something positive in yourself and in others around you.

    If the people around you are negative and you can’t change that, either remove yourself from the situation or view it simply as one obstacle you face in pursuing your own potential. Stay focused on your own goals and make the best of the situation.

    Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results in yourself and the enterprise.
