Why are Indians so negative about their ownselves??

Why are Indian's so negative about India all the time? Some say India is not ready for F1, some say Indians cannot be good at team sports, some say Indians can't be good coaches, some believe we will never be a developed country, some say Indian's can't make good movies.... Are there any other people in the world, who achieve so much in such a short time after 200 years of servitude and are still so negative about themselves?

Maybe it serves us well, maybe this negativity is good to keep us in check. There are many maybes which could be good for us, but I just wish some of the negativity could be channelized into something more productive.

  • I am not agreed with you. Indians are not in general so negative about their selves.

  • You wrote, "Maybe it serves us well, maybe this negativity is good to keep us in check.

First of all, negativity is never a good thing and it therefore can never be channeled into something productive. All the "what if's" and "maybe's" lead a person to become either paranoid or incapable of reaching their potential and leads to horrible circumstances. I'll give you a very good example: Someone who earns a six-figure salary constantly carps about how s/he cannot make ends meet and uses this to control their spouse's spending habits, even if their spouse is also earning a good amount. In turn, both of them instill this in their child's brain and the child also feel the stress of this lie, though they don't know what to make of it, because they see their parents spending a good amount of money at times (holidays, for example) yet spreading this lie about themselves to others and "acting" as if they don't have enough. This behaviour leads to getting angry at any expenditure, whether big or small; it leads to not being able to enjoy the hard-earned prosperity because the person for some reason revels in thinking, speaking and acting negatively - this is a major weakness; it leads to making bad decisions (including inaction on an investment) which have a negative effect on net finances; it also leads to others believing the lie even if they see evidence which proves otherwise. People will always believe what you tell them, especially if it is negative. All this ultimately culminates in a downward spiral - financially, physically, mentally and of course spiritually (which was weak to begin with, since negativity was the basis) - and until someone really reflects on the chain of actions and looks at the beginning of that chain and realises that negativity is the root cause of all distress, the situation will stagnate.

    People think that fear is a great motivator to get things done, but it is limiting and ultimately it is a "dark room where negatives are developed." Whereas, being positive and proactive in your thoughts, words and actions will help you to move forward and better your situation.
