6 Toxic Behaviors that Sabotage Your Success

Posted July 3rd, 2014 @ 5:35am by Chilli Amar



Let's be honest: We've all acted in toxic, damaging ways at one time or another. No matter how tough things are in your life, you can try to become more gentle, calm and loving with yourself and others.

According to the Huffington Post, here are the 6 MOST TOXIC BEHAVIORS:


1. Taking everything personally: People are toxic to be around when they believe that everything that happens in life is a direct assault on them or is in some way all about them. The reality is that what people say and do to you is much more about them, than you. People's reactions to you are about their filters and their perspectives, wounds and experiences.

2. Obsessing about negative thoughts: It's very hard to be around people who can't or won't let go of negativity -- when they dwell on and speak incessantly about the terrible things that could happen and have happened, the slights they've suffered and the unfairness of life. 

3. Treating yourself like a victim: Believing you're a victim, that you have no power to exert and no influence on the direction of your life is a toxic stance that keeps you stuck and small. When you stop whining, and refuse to see yourself as a hapless victim of fate, chance or discrimination, then you'll find that you are more powerful than you realized, but only if you choose to accept that reality.
