How to Handle Negative People

I have a weekly radio show on Hay House radio every Wednesday. The show before mine is hosted by one of my favorite authors, Dr. Christiane Northrup, so I often listen to the last 15 minutes of her program. Even as a passive listener of Dr. Northrup's show, I always pick up some kind of incredible wisdom and advice. On one show a caller complained that her mother loved to rant about how miserable she was. The caller went on to say, "my mother hates life and doesn't believe in happiness."

When I heard this comment I perked up with curiosity wondering how she would answer. As usual, Dr. Northrup's response was spot on, and when I applied it in my own life it greatly helped me handle negative people. In this video, I share her tip and offer you the opportunity to test drive this exercise in your own relationships. Practice this tool and let me know how it goes by posting a comment below. I expect miracles!
