Stay Away From Negative People

Sunday, March 04, 2018

Don’t even give them the time of day. Take what negative words that are spoken out of their mouths and turn it into energy that pushes you toward your goals. I’m so serious when I say this! I’ve heard the negative talks and if I would have listened, I would not be where I am today. I do thank God for experiences and being able to share this with you! This is your life. Your vision. Your goals....and you will achieve them your way (not by someone else’s expectations of how you should achieve them). It’s very easy to tear someone down with words...but it’s genuinity and kindness that builds. So if the words don’t add value to your journey, lay them by the way side. If they cause you more pain and tears as a hinderance...lay it by the way side. If their words beat you up, drop them like a bad habit and lay that “burden” by the way side. This is not the time to become healthy based on what others think YOUR health should be...they are not YOU. Your goal. Your vision. Your journey. Your success. Your victory. Yours and yours alone. You got this. You can do it - run, walk, crawl...just keep moving!

    I am just starting out. I fully agree that negative people can bring you down, if you let them. It is best to stick around the people that build you up and keep saying things that encourage.
