What causes us to listen to negative people who lead unsuccessful lives? People who have no hopes, dreams, or ambitions that offer an excuse for every goal they set and gave up on before they even got started. Have you ever found yourself discussing smart investing with someone that is drowning in debt, has no retirement fund, no investment experience, and never owned a home? Yet this person seems to know what you need to do with your funds? They have all the knowledge, in-depth advice, and speak with such passion they almost sound as if they know what they are talking about? Did you find yourself eating up everything this person had to say? Then you dashed home and began to research what this person told you, and realized that it was a bunch of drivel.
Have you ever been overweight sitting next to your foodie partner inhaling endless baked goods and meat products, and find yourself asking for advice on weight loss and exercise?
Or maybe you sought advice on building a website from a person that did not own a computer. While deep in conversation you just absorbed all the information this seemingly sensible person had to convey. Once again you scramble to research all of the information that was bestowed upon you, and once again you find it was a load of poppycock. At this point it’s time to take a good look at the self. What made you think a broke person could tell you how to begin an investment portfolio? Is it not obvious that their skills and techniques are subpar, and would only result in you getting further into debt? Did you really believe your foodie partner who weights just as much as you do would have knowledge about body building or any other topics that pertain to diet or exercise? Or could it be that you really have no intention of attempting to achieve your goal?
Stop and take a good, hard look at yourself. Do you really want to achieve your goals, or are you just blowing smoke up your own tail? Negative people will provide you with everything you need to lead a completely unsuccessful life filled with unnecessary dramatics. They can and will provide you with every excuse you need to easily keep you from getting motivated, staying motivated, and doing what it takes to really achieve your goals. They will also teach you the art of self criticism to insure that outside of their presents you will continue to relieve yourself of useless emotions such as confidence, self worth, and ambition. From the negative you will also be encouraged to embrace laziness, anger, jealousy, hatred, and depression. This will insure that you never rise above them, and you will always look up to them. Eventually, you will stop the useless researching and hang on every word that falls from their mouths like verbal diarrhea.
What are you supposed to do when you are surrounded by negative entities? First, you must ignore your desire to run towards them. In order for you to be successful you must enlist the advice of people who have accomplished similar goals. Let’s use the investment example above. You decide that you want to learn to create and manage an investment portfolio. To begin do your research. Make use of your computer or smart phone, and research the various investment firms. If you find that you are undecided about which firm to use then turn to the website of major financial gurus’ such as Clark Howard and Suze Orman. I know for a fact Clark Howard’s people will call you back and give you some great advice. Once you get the information follow directions and take the necessary steps to get on your way to achieving your financial goals. Remember nothing happens over night. You can and will experience set backs along the way. Don’t get discouraged, learn from your set backs and keep moving forward. Before you know it you will have accomplished and surpassed your goals. In the beginning stages make sure to stay away from negative, unsuccessful people. It is so easy to adopt the excuses they offer, but it takes strength and courage to really begin the work that will move you towards achieving your goal.
