Say no to negative influences

It’s inevitable that throughout our life we will be influenced by those around us. As children we are naturally shaped by our families. However, there comes a time when we must let go of the views and ideas of other people that are holding us back. Surround yourself with people who love, care and support you. Don’t let others diminish your hopes and emphasise your fears – for those are the people that are afraid to dream for fear of failing or being judged. So many people are too scared to go out and get what they want out of life and therefore, they convince others that they should be scared too. This quote sums it up nicely…

“None of us are perfect, but I value those who make growth a priority… They push things forward, they show us that it’s better to die in your truth than to live by what cowardly people deem to be “right”… You’ll always be crazy to people too scared of reality to dream… Your mistakes will always be dumb to those who fear trying anything new… But there’s always a prize for those who preservere… Greatness is infatuated with those that have the discipline to stay focused and the work ethic to consistently get better.”
