The world is full of negative people. It isn’t a fun fact to realize, but it is true. If you are making an effort to achieve your goals and believe in a positive future for yourself, then there is a very good chance that you are actually a positive person… but that doesn’t mean that you won’t be affected by the naysayers who will try to bring you down and discourage your with negativity.
The truth is that naysayers are everywhere. It is also true, however, that you should ignore them… and here is why.
1… Because they are not you
Naysayers may like to tell you how bad your ideas are… but the truth is that they are not you. There is no way for them to know for sure what you are planning, how motivated you are, or how much you are capable of. You are capable of much more than anyone else realizes… so don’t listen to the discouragement.
2… Because they are generally not happy
Naysayers have this very annoying habit of trying to make everyone else as miserable as they are. This might sound harsh, but it is regrettably true. Subconsciously, they want everyone else to have the same thought processes that they have… that life is about sulking through and being unhappy, and that goals are not something to strive for.
This kind of thinking will poison your future. Do not listen!
3… Because they generally have not accomplishing anything beyond the ‘normal’
If you look very closely, you will find that most naysayers have never left their comfort zone or done anything that has led them to incredible success. The simple truth is that negative thinking holds you back… so don’t participate in it! Get away from negativity and embrace positive thinking.
4… Because you want a different life than they want
Naysayers might be content to ‘settle’ with what they have… but never let this mentality pervade your own positive thinking! We should always be striving to work harder, to become better, and to accomplish more. Set the bar high, and when you reach it, move on to the next level. Don’t let negativity or fear cause you to settle for less than you desire.
