Did you already read at least 1 book or an article about happiness, success or anything related to your well-being?
Or just watch a Youtube video trying to find out more about this topic…
I bet, one of the first advice you got was – GET RID OF NEGATIVE PEOPLE.
Am I Right?
And it´s true…
I know this from my own experience…
Some of my “friends” rather made fun of me while I was trying to start a business. Or when I rather stay home and read a book, instead of going out to a bar with them…
But, despite all of that, even this isn´t Black or White.
I believe, there is a time when getting rid of negative people is actually BAD for you.
That´s why I decided to write this article…
Once I heard this story from the motivational speaker – Les Brown:
Mr. Brown was once on a conference of public speakers, and there was a man who lectured them.
All attendees saw, this man wasn´t so good, didn´t have a real talent for public speaking, but still, he was up there, and all other speakers (better than him) were sitting, and listening to him.
They all thought, how the hell can he be up there, talking, and we are down here, and listen to him.
The speaker said…
“I know, I don’t have charisma. I know, I don’t have energy. I know, I’m not as enthusiastic as many of you here.
But the reason I’m standing up here and holding this microphone and you are seated out there listening to me is because I represent the thoughts you have rejected for yourself.”
Despite any circumstances, this man finds the courage and did what many more talented people didn´t. I am sure, they were hundreds of people, who wanted to discourage them from public speaking, but he didn´t care, he knew, this is what he wanted to do, and found a way to deal with all negative people.
If you don´t know where to find your courage, here are 8 effective tricks for boosting your courage.
But, back to your life situation…
Let me tell you a personal story of mine…
When I wanted to start my own business, I said about it to my family. What do you think, their reaction was?
“Is this real? If it was too easy, everybody would do it? Just finish school and get a good job…”
And so on, and so on…
I bet many people experience this when you talk about something that isn´t common, with your family.
But my question is…
Should I be offended, and wait for their apology, because they didn´t share my vision?
– OF COURSE NOT!
These people react negatively just because they love you! They want only the best for you!
So it´s pretty sure, they don´t want you to risk, they want a happy life for you.
My point is, there are negative people you SHOULDN´T get rid of, and there are negative people who you SHOULD get rid of ASAP.
Where is the difference?
First, you need to understand this…
There are 2 reasons, people act negatively to you:
After a while, you will know exactly who wants to help you, and who wants to drag you down…
Once you realize who is who, you know exactly which people should stay, and which people show go away from your life ASAP.
What about people from the first group, who wants to help me, but still are a little bit negative?
Just stop talking about this subject. Don´t give them a reason to be upset, don´t give them a reason to be negative.
Find out what triggers their negativity, and try to avoid it.
But, when sometimes they start talking about it, don´t be upset, try to learn from anything they tell you.
And most important – Keep In Mind, They Do It Because They Love You And Wants The Best For You!
Thank you very much, I hope this article was helpful for you…
