Somewhere at one point of your life, you might get stuck in a place where you feel that you are surrounded by a darkness of negativity. At the first thought, you might want to just leave everything and take the easy way out by searching for a new job. But that is not the solution always. If you love the work you are doing and getting a handsome pay, you should fight to ward off the negativity.

This form of negativity usually comes through demotivating remarks from a boss or your colleagues not supporting your work. The basic and most important thing to do in such situations is to remain calm and not let pessimistic activities drag you downhill. You should show off an enormous amount of positivity that it will outshine all the negativity around you.

This infographic will show how you can remain motivated in a negative environment.
