We all have negative people in our lives that will tell us we can't do something when we know we can. These people may not be trying to squash your motivation intentionally however. They may just be negative by nature. Sometimes negative people grew up in a home with other negative people and no one to believe in them. Other times negative people spawn from difficult life situations, like the death of a child or their spouse. No matter what the issue is, these negative people can be damaging to your self-esteem and your motivation. If you want to stay on course to success, you will need to do a few things in order to disallow the negative people in your life to negate your motivation. Use these tips and suggestions to help you get rid of the negativity and get on with your life.
When it comes to negative influences in your life, there is one main thing you can do to rid your mind of any negativity. The thing to do is distance yourself from these people. If it is a negative friend, simply choose not to hang out with him or her. If it is a negative relative, choose not to spend extra time with the person. While it is not a good idea to cut off contact to these people without discussing why, it is your decision if you want to be around negative people.
If the negative person is someone close to you, try having a little talk about the issue to see if you can help them get rid of that negative attitude. They may not be aware that they are negative and may want to try to change. If you have tried to talk to the person about your concerns with their attitude, and nothing has changed, you may want to consider the person as someone who is harmful to your attitude and act accordingly.
Choose What You Hear
Sometimes there are people in your life that you cannot escape. These people may be immediate family members or co-workers. If you are stuck dealing with a negative person that has an impact on your motivation, then you still have options. The thing to do is to choose what you hear. If someone goes on and on about how you cannot lose weight because you never get exercise or eating in unhealthy manners, just chant to yourself that you can do it. When they try to bring you down, bring yourself up with positive talk.
You can choose what you hear. Perhaps they are saying that you can't do something because they lack the motivation to do it themselves. Maybe they are overweight and have tried to lose weight. When they failed, they might assume that everyone will fail. Sometimes negative people do this because it makes them feel better about themselves. So, keep that in mind when they are using negative talk, you can turn it into more motivation for you to succeed.
Decide Who You Are
When you know who you are, negative people will have no impact on you. Even if you sit and listen to someone negative talk for thirty minutes, if you are a positive person, you will not be pulled into their negativity. You have the choice whether or not you are positive. When you decide that no matter what you will be positive, you will be more comfortable dealing with negative people. You will look at them with sorrow and sympathy because you will know how destructive negative talk can be to everyone. Knowing who you are can help you get through any negative situation with a negative person.
If you want to succeed easily, you should surround yourself with positive and successful people that will fuel your motivation. Those negative people in your life will only damage your motivation. You can choose to eliminate them from your life or you can choose to learn to deal with the negativity without becoming negative yourself. Try to stay focused and realize that just because someone else is negative doesn't mean you have to be negative too. No matter what you do, you can keep that motivation and positive attitude and be a real success
