Do you know people that if they won the lottery, they would still complain that they have to go collect their winnings? On today’s episode, I share with you three tips on how to deal with negative people.

The first piece of advice is to use the negative emotions that they have to reinforce your belief that being positive is the right thing to do. Choose to rise above the negativity.

The second tip that I have learned to to empathise with them. Some people can be negative as they want attention because they are going through a difficult time. Try to see things from their point of view.

The third thing is to be honest with them. Lead with generosity and give them feedback. If you think the person can benefit from constructive feedback, you need to help them.

Set the stage and work out step-by-step of what you want to say to them. People might not say thank you for the feedback, but they will likely take it on board and you might a change in their behaviour as a result.
