    I limit my time with negative people even if it's family. I try to not listen to them and to remind myself of the power of positive thinking:)

    Ignore them! You have to think about yourself and try to not let others bring you down!

    One way to deal with negative people is to say something positive to their negative comment. Find something to agree with and then indicate how you look at it from a positive angle. This often throws them off. emoticon

    The first thing you have to do is look at the Winning Outcome. Tell yourself I am..I feel..I have..I look and I like all the things about you will make you feel better about yourself. Negative comments from people are trying to make you feel bad. No one can make you feel anything bad about yourself because Winning Outcome makes you feel great.
All the best. emoticon

    BEING AROUND PEOPLE WITH NEGATIVITY IS NOT A OPTION WITH ME. I JUST DONT'T LISTEN TO THEM IF THEY SHOW BEING NEGATIVE.

    The original post is not a helpful tip. It's better to shoe an example of what you do OP.
