Negativity

This Sparked Me!

Stay away from those negative people that make you doubt yourself. Negative people love company. Become the positive person that makes them feel foolish. Negativity will never help you succeed.

    This idea sounds great unfortunately it is something that I can't avoid. My best defense is to try to remain positive even when the situation isn't and the people are definitely not.

    One thing that has become very apparent to me in this journey is that we are like who we continually associate with - If you're around negative people for too long, it starts to effect how you talk, think and act. I've started to cultivate friendships with people who are positive, outgoing, encouraging and confident... and it's wearing off on me. :)
