At some point in time, if you are SERIOUS about improving your mindset and doing all that you can to eliminate as much negativity from you life as possible...you're going to have to make choices.
And, yes, those choices will - and MUST - include those with whom you spend your time.
No matter how hard you try or no matter how hard you think you need any particular relationship, you will have to make a choice as to whether or not that person actually helps you in your desire for a more positive mindset or hinders you in that pursuit.
Go ahead and try it, friend...it simply will not work if you attempt to stay connected to negative and dramatic people.
As the graphic states: "The only way to get better is to surround yourself with better people."
"Oh, but I can't!" Again, it's a choice and it's YOUR choice but it is a choice that will have to be made sooner or later.
Just some advice here...the longer you wait the more you will realize that you have wasted valuable time and energy hanigng on to something that was not actually worth hanging on to.
That kind of hurts, doesn't it? However, you will find this to be true and the stronger will be your regret wishing that you had made the change sooner.
Hey listen, we ALL have our "bad" (negative) moments. Don't take this to say that you must remove yourself from anyone that has negative thoughts and/or words EVER in their life.
You'll live your life as a loner by doing so.
I am talking about those that continually criticize and/or mock you for daring to reach for your goals and dreams and to NEVER give up regardless of what you can "see" at the moment. I'm talking about those people who spend so much of their time watching the news that they must share with you and anyone else that will listen, every negative and horrible thing that is going on in the world. I 'm talking about the people who are always whining and complaining about SOMETHING. I'm talking about those people who always whine and complain about what they DON'T have and/or about what is WRONG in and with their life and yet, aren't willing to do anything about it.
Yeah, THOSE people.
I bet you have some of those in your life, don't you? I bet you pictured some particular people as you read through that list of descriptions, didn't you?
Another word of advice...don't think that you can be "the one" that can help change them. No sir, don't do it....they will drag you down more often than you being able to lift them up.
It's hard. It's difficult. But friend...it is necessary and it is a fact: "The only way to get better is to surround yourself with better people."
Tomorrow we'll discuss some possible ways to make that happen. Be thinking and brainstorming yourself between now and then. I'd love to hear YOUR ideas on this.
Until then, whatever you do, always be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
