10 No Negativity Quotes To Shift Your Mindset

We love to talk about positivity but what about the effects of the negativity that we are trying to get away from?  This list of no negativity quotes is intended to get you thinking about those not so pleasant thoughts and to inspire you to consciously make a change.  To clear them out of your head and get yourself on the track to a more positive mindset.

Negative Results

‘Negative thinking definitely attracts negative results.’

Norman Vincent Peele

How often do you think about the results of your negative thinking?  This negativity quote from Norman Vincent Peele is short and to the point.  There simply is no way to achieve a positive result from negative thought patterns.  I think it’s time we realize that it’s not just about sugar coating life with a positive comment but actually breaking the pattern of negativity in our lives in general.

‘Negative minds full of fear and doubt produce negative lives, which can ultimately destroy your life.’

Joyce Meyer

These words are harsh.  But, as the quote above, we’re talking results.  And, a lifetime of negative thoughts and negative talk will undoubtedly result in a negative life.  And, while the word destroy may seem harsh, you certainly will not live a fulfilled or even content life if you destroy it with negative thoughts.  If this negativity quote feels harsh it may be because it’s touching on a sore point?  Something to think about, isn’t it.

Letting Go

‘I let go of all negativity that rests in my body and mind.’

Louise Hay

So, this no negativity quote from Louise Hay is a reminder that, although we don’t always see it, we do have the power to change our emotions from negative to positive.  It takes conscious effort and commitment, but we can shift and release the negative emotions that we carry within us.  It takes us realizing that the control that negativity has on us comes ultimately from our own minds.  This means that we can, one step at a time, move towards more loving thoughts.



You get to Choose

‘Negative emotions are like unwelcome guests.  Just because they show up on our doorstep doesn’t mean they have a right to stay.’

Deepak Chopra

I love this quote!  Why do we let those negative thoughts make themselves at home in our heads?  Our hearts!  Why, when in each moment we get to choose whether to show them the door instead!  We give them a seat at the table.  We give them the power.

‘I will not allow anyone to walk in my mind with dirty feet.’


A similar no negativity quote to the previous one, this time by Gandhi.  This quote reminds us of the impact of other peoples negativity on our lives.  You wouldn’t let someone traipse mud through your lounge, so why let them drag their negative mindset through your life, leaving behind a messy trail.

New Perspective

‘Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time.’

Napoleon Hill

This is the good news!  Negative thoughts, when we give them power, can be difficult to shake.  But, if you stay focused on making a shift in your mindset you can rid yourself of these negative perspectives.  Both positive and negative cannot occupy the same space!  Try it out.  Find a negative thought.  Then, find a positive thought.  The negative is instantly gone.  Now, it may come back pretty quickly, but here’s the beautiful thing: you now know the trick to kicking it to the curb.  The more you push the negative aside by thinking happier and more more peaceful thoughts, the easier it becomes.  Until, one day, the positive outweighs the negative.

Stillness and Clarity

‘The mind is like water.  When it’s turbulent, it’s difficult to see.  When it’s calm, everything becomes clear.’

Prashad Mahes

There is great power in being still.  A negative mind is not a quiet mind.  Sometimes we need to learn to be still and allow our inner guide to speak.  To see beyond the surface level life, filled with anxious and negative perspectives.  When we allow our minds to be still, we allow ourselves to see that so much of the negative thoughts in our heads are superficial.  They are nowhere near as significant to our lives as we think.  We can, in fact let them go!

Negativity is Dangerous

‘A mind ill with negative attitudes is more dangerous than a sick body, for its sickness is always contagious.’

Napoleon Hill

It is seldom that we think of it this way, that our negative thinking is contagious.  Imagine for a moment you are yelling at your kids and, in the air above you, you see a black smoke floating from your mouth to the ears of your child.  In through their ears and deep into their mind.  A more tangible experience like this would certainly help us to stop this kind of behaviour, wouldn’t it.  But we don’t see the effects of our negative behaviour in that way.  And, when our kids react badly we seldom connect it back to our own behaviour.  Makes it difficult to learn!

Denying your Dreams

‘One cannot be prepared for something while secretly believing it will not happen.’

Nelson Mandela

Do you have a dream in your heart?  Do you allow negative thought patterns to stand in your way?  This quote is a reminder that anything that we hope for in this life relies on our optimistic attitude for it to come into fruition.  Nothing positive can be achieved through negative thinking, but with a positive attitude towards life you can achieve almost anything!


‘Stay away from negative people.  They have a problem for every solution.’

Albert Einstein

And, finally, Albert Einstein.  If you want change, take the road of the optimistic.  Whatever the situation, a negative mind will pull out the negative.  Be the one that stands in the light of positivity.  Be the one that knows that good results can only come from good attitudes.  Don’t judge those stuck in negative patterns, but don’t get caught up in them either.  Find the solutions to life’s problems because that is the only pathway to growth.

I hope you enjoyed these no negativity quotes.  To me they are a great (sometimes harsh) reminder of the power of negativity.  And, we don’t want to give it any power.  When we take the time to look at the hold it has on our lives, we can recognize how important it is that we get these negative thoughts under control.  And, amp up those positive ones because they are the ones that will change your life for the better!
