In order to truly eliminate your insecurities about passing the GED you need to shut out all of the negative energy from your life. Look at the sources of bad and toxic information that come into your life and avoid them at all cost. Remember, our minds are like sponges and if we see and hear too much negativity we eventually become negative ourselves. Negative people almost never achieve big positive goals. As such, you need to limit your time with people you know that are focused on highlighting everything that is bad. Try not to watch the TV news or reading all the negative stuff on the internet and social media sites, like Facebook. Also, stop hanging out with anyone that makes you feel bad. Let’s think about all the activities we often engage in that are a total waste of time and that are negative. For example, do you watch reality TV shows like the Real Housewives of New Jersey or Judge Judy? As much as these shows are entertaining they are also a total waste of your time. Most of these shows focus on “drama” and people getting into trouble. What do you have to gain from watching other people deal with problems in their life? If you want to relax and watch TV try watching something that will make you feel good like a comedy show or classic movie.
Reducing the amount of negativity in your life will help you remain positive and focused on achieving your goal(s) and improving yourself. Spend your time staying totally focused and inspired about your goals. Finally, one of the best ways to keep the negative energy out of your life is to get real busy with productive tasks. Don’t have too much free time on your hands and keep your schedule full of constructive and positive items to accomplish.
