I understand the irony of what I’m about to say, but I find all the negative social media updates drive me batty.

A negative, whingey or antagonistic post often attracts others who love to join in and have a good whinge with them.

Conversely, you have the positive. Positive posts that inspire others to do better, be better, have more and do more. These posts tend to attract a positive audience who believe that opportunity is everywhere.

Whilst the negative updates and antagonistic posts might get traction, it is key to note that the audience who comment and thrive on negativity are often living a negative existence.

We are drawn to those whom we believe will approve of our thinking and us.

We look for common traits, ideas and interests.

When we see a post on social media it will either resonate with us or repel us.

It is also true that you are the sum of the people you hang around with most. If you consume/post negative content, you will attract negativity.

If you surround yourself with positivity you will attract greater opportunities.
