“Misery loves company.” This familiar was said to have been written by the English botanist and naturalist John Ray (1627–1705). I believe that this sentiment still holds true today.
Negative people suck
How many negative people do you know? Constantly complaining about how unfair life is, how the system is rigged, and confident that the world is going down the toilet.
Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what makes these types of folks be so pessimistic. Other times, knowledge of their losses and failures makes things easier to understand why they behave the way they do.
A common trait for the naysayers however, is that they believe that we are all in the same boat, and it’s sure to sink.
Don’t allow these people’s negativity set you back on the path to your goals though.
Stay true to yourself
If you have a positive sense of worth, know where it is that you want to go, and are truly happy with the life you are living, no amount of negativity in the world can stop you.
It’s extremely important that you stay focused in your goals whatever they may be. Imagine if some of the great inventors had listened to the people that said it couldn’t be done and had given up?
Is the glass half full?
Whether you are an athlete, an artist, an entrepreneur, or just an average Joe trying to make it through this thing we call life, stick to your guns.
Are you going to allow the negativity around you influence the way you wish to live your life?
1 thought on “Choose Your Own Way”
It is easy for the mind to take the perspective that everything bad that happens to you is due to external circumstances. It is a natural defense mechanism but I think it is important to maintain a state of mind that you are in control of your future. It is not easy to do, but once you really accept that fact, it is very empowering and the possibilities of what can be, significantly expand.
