“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” Mark Twain.
I had a situation recently that reminded me of the importance of surrounding myself with positive people and ignoring the negative. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, there are always some people that want you to fail. These are the people you need to ignore.
Surrounding yourself with positive, encouraging people will help you to reach your dreams. Unfortunately, negativity and pessimism are just as contagious as optimism and positivity.
You’ve probably run across your share of the negative, discouraging people in your business life. The key is focusing on those that are positive. Think about it for a minute. I’m sure there is someone in your business life that is encouraging and that you enjoy speaking with. Reach out to them on a regular basis. It can keep you on track and give you a little pick-me-up when you need it.
Other positive people will want to connect with and interact with you if you are a positive person yourself. Build your own self confidence and positive attitude by thinking and speaking positively. Be optimistic. Be open to new ideas and new challenges. Be flexible and always willing to learn. Seek out those who share your values and goals. Remove the toxicity!
