"To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing." Elbert Hubbard
Don't you just love being told you can't do something? That you're not smart enough? That you don't have what it takes? That you're just not good enough to get the job done?
Sure gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling all over just knowing others hold you in such low esteem, doesn't it?
But do you really care what these people have to say? Unfortunately, sometimes you do.
Even though these people have no idea what makes you tick, sometimes you listen to their comments. And while they haven't a clue about what you're capable of doing, sometimes you pay attention to what they say.
You hear them say you can't.
You hear them say you won't.
You hear them say you don't stand a chance.
You take their criticisms and critiques to heart.
And start believing what they say.
"Believe in who you are, believe in what you feel; your power will come from that." Melissa Etheridge
Some people love to be negative. Better stated, some folks LIVE to be negative. These down-and-outers enjoy criticizing and passing judgment on everyone around. And relish spewing their negative vitriol like it's going out of style. It's just what they do. And they're good at it.
Sooner or later (probably sooner than you wish) these individuals are going to be saying some not-so-nice things about you.
You cannot stop them. Nor can you control what they say. But you can absolutely, positively tune them out. And ignore them. Let them blather and carry on all that they want; let them say whatever they want about whomever they want whenever they want.
Just make sure to never listen to a single word they say.
"Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you." Jan Goldstein
Their empty words are only that: hollow, meaningless words. These words cannot hurt you. Nor can they touch you. The only thing that counts, the only thing that matters is what you believe - about yourself and what you're capable of achieving.
You need to believe you can do it.
Believe you have what it takes.
Believe you're going to get the job done.
Believe it with all of your heart.
Then go do it. And make it work.
"Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard." Anne Sexton
If you're not getting the positive results you seek, chances are pretty good you're mired in a negative mess. You're running with a negative crowd. Your mind is filled with negative clutter. Your vision is clouded with negative muck.
Negative surrounds you. It engulfs you. And if you're not careful, it becomes you. You've got to stop listening to what the losers are saying about you. And start listening to your heart.
Rather than waste one minute listening to the doom-and-gloom crowd, why don't you immerse yourself in a positive charged environment? Surround yourself with positive people ooze optimism at every turn. Associate with people who build you up. Spend time with people who encourage and support you, people who make you come alive.
Start thinking positive thoughts. Fill your mind with encouraging, motivating, inspiring images. Think about all of the wonderful things you want to do. Think positive and you'll get positive.
Start seeing things in a positive light. Instead of dwelling on the negatives, focus on the positives. See yourself being your best and doing your best. See yourself getting things done and making things happen. See yourself living an incredible life.
Start being a positive person. Set a positive tone. Become a positive force. And before you know it, you'll start feeling better. You'll start getting better. You'll start doing all sorts of things others said you couldn't do.
And start having the time of your life.
Power Pointer: Do it. Be it. Become it.
