The secret to dealing with Negative Judgments well is to ask, "Can this negative judgment help me in some way?"
If the answer is YES, turn the Negative Judgment into a series of positive action items that will help you to succeed and be happy.
If the answer is NO, the Negative Judgment can NOT help you, reject it and redirect your time, energy and attention to thoughts, actions and objectives that help you build happiness and spiritual success.
The example we often use is: "I'm going to be late!" is a negative judgment that produces anxiety. It can help you if you turn it into a series of positive action items: "It's 7:30 now, I need to watch the clock carefully, collect my things, make sure I don't leave anything behind so I can walk out the door by ten of eight." See how it works?
Other negative statements prompt you to ask, "What can I do to build confidence, gain competence, get help and learn new skills?"
If the negative judgment is just running you down and can't help you in any way, reject it! It's making you miserable for no reason.
Minimizing Misery and Building Happiness and Spiritual Success are keys to Creating A Happy Life!
