Good morning! I hope you are well today!
Always remember people want you to do well, but never better than them.
There are people in this world who are negative, pessimistic, potty mouthed, angry and down right toxic. You know the people I am referring to, these are probably the people it is hard to be around if you are like me. You need to stay away from these people as much as possible. And if these types of people make up your inner circle of friends, get new ones. These people suck the life out of your dreams and your wishes. They believe life is as good as it is going to get so they do nothing to make it better. They believe that life has already happened to them and they have no control.
Well they are wrong, the power is within your grasp right now!
These people want to make sure that you stay where you are so you can’t accomplish your dreams because they have already given up on theirs. Tim Ferris in his book the 4 Hour Workweek states ” we are the average of the 5 people we are closest to.” Naturally this means that if you are around mostly positive people you will be just that, if you are around negative people you will also be just that. So be around positive people or being around no one at all. If you are around no one at all you will be around at least one positive being, GOD.
The key to keeping your dreams alive in this instance is to filter out your information intake. By this I mean that you decide on each piece of information whether it is useful and needed or useless and should be discarded. Then you look at each piece of your life for patterns, if you continually deal with negative people when going somewhere or someplace, stop going and change. I feel that there are a lot of toxic people around me, I do my best to stay away from these people and if I cannot stay away I find a way to keep them and myself positive for a change. I have stayed away from many of my friends and family members because of this.
One easy question to decide who should be in your life:
Ask yourself “does this person benefit me, my life and my goal or do they tear it down?” This helps a bunch!
Bruce lee stated “absorb what is useful, discard what is not. Add what is uniquely your own.” This says it all when talking to, dealing with, and being around others whether they are toxic or a blessing.
Stay true to yourself, your mission, your goal, and your heart!
Thank you for reading! Have a great Day!
