Negativity Is the Enemy of Creativity – David Lynch

Know that it’s not weird to have negative thoughts.  It doesn’t make you different or unusual. It doesn’t make you odd or unique.  Negativity is a part of the human experience.  It is an ever-present energy, engaged in a continuous cosmic dance with its positive counterpart. For all of our minds, negativity is the default setting.  We however, can make a conscious choice to ignore.  Just because negativity is present in our mind, doesn’t mean we have to allow it to overwhelm and control our life and actions.  We can stop listening.  We can stop giving power.   

Negativity and the submersion of our mind in negative thoughts will never allow us to create that positive and abundant life we desire.  We must monitor how we speak to ourselves because if left unchecked, negativity will root itself within our subconscious, not to think so would be a mistake.  Negativity will not only diminish your self-image, but it will deteriorate your spirit and deplete your energy.  It will stunt your creativity, and prevent you from being able to create the future you would like for yourself.

Make it your mission to look for the positives in your everyday life.  Choose to live from a place of gratitude, faith, and possibility.  Beat back the natural impulse to grasp at the negative.  Know that through your thoughts you can shape your own future.  Believe that your future holds more positive opportunities and you’ll be surprised at just how many more you find.

  1. Great post! Being able to overcome these cycles of negativity will only make us stronger. We’ll become more resilient, and begin to appreciate the beauty of life. 🙂

  2. I like your perspective. 🙂
    Would also like to add that for me personally when I’m feeling a certain kind of negativity it can fuel my writing and through poetry I can some how connect dots, see how everything comes full circle, find answers and feel in alignment once again. It’s that emotion that creates the passion, truly feeling and living life from that space. Dedicating your life to feeling good, uplifting those around you and shifting the vibration on the earth one bit at a time.
    Love and light,

  3. What great timing, as I was just beating myself up because I didn’t like anything I’ve written in the last few days. Your words were just what I needed to hear. Thank you!

  4. I have a couple posts about this as well, including one called “Taking in the Good” that references the book called Hardwiring Happiness by Rick Hanson, Ph.D. where he discusses why the brain more easily stores negative memories and thoughts than positive ones. It partly has to do with often having a stronger emotional response to the negatives. A very interesting read. It’s sometimes hard to find the positives in the negatives (you may have read my recent post on this), but getting to the point where I can focus on that has made a big difference in how I feel and react to things and my outlook in general.

  5. Negativity indeed stops creativity, blocks the imagination and manifests exactly what you don’t want, a delicious reminder of what the positive mind can achieve.

  6. Probably my “life” verse (this one has been a constant in my life) is Philippians 4:8
    “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”
    It works for me.
    Thank you for a good post!

  7. Great post! I think we are born positive, expecting to have our needs fulfilled without fear or question. I think we are taught negativity. Then we immediately grasp the negative possibility of any situation over the positive possibility. The only way to unlearn this madness is to rewire how we look at the world, one thought at a time. It’s a process…

  8. Words of wisdom. I saw that you liked my most recent post. I swear a lot when I write, which is how I expunge much of my negativity (the writing and swearing both). I like to think that negativity can also fuel creativity and that expression can become a great source of healing. Thank you for your timely and rejuvenating words.

  9. so true–use the negative for positive purpose, Kerouac was at his writing powers when he was ignored and written most of his stuff early!!!

  10. You are right. “Negativity is the enemy of creativity.”

  11. Such a great article. Thanks for the amazing website, and thank you for liking my post. I am so grateful!

  12. Negativity may be a warning. The possibility that something, unwanted, may happen and it is wise to be ready. It arises through fear but, whatever you fear you attract. Awareness is wise but worry becomes a negativity. Worry is a waste because nothing can be solved if it has not happened. Everything feeds everything else. Creative energy is everywhere. Why use it to create what you don’t want?
