Every time I see one of my dreams coming true, I see myself moving farther and farther away from that negative, drama-filled person I was many years ago. It takes much stamina to fulfill your dreams. People will always be clamoring around you at how dumb your ideas may be, or how inadequate you are to have that dream. Well, I’m here to say “Stop listening them and move in the directions of your dreams!” Just like the photo above, you can’t have a negative mind and live a positive life. Negative Nobodys will come and go but you have choice to listen to them and continue with your status quo life, or you can push their words out of your head and listen to your inner voice telling you, “I CAN DO THIS!” Dreams are made of this!
Sometimes when we stop listening to their negative words that keep playing in our personal MP3 files in our brain, our whole life is changed because we aren’t tied to them anymore. I’m not saying this is easy; it’s far from it. It’s one of the most difficult things to do especially when it’s your family saying these negative words. If you don’t speak up then you have to put up. If someone in your life is causing you to have a negative outlook in your life, and you don’t do anything to make it stop then you are giving that person permission to dump on you whenever the feeling hits them. Negative Nobody’s don’t see themselves as negative because no one has ever had the strength to go against the grain and tell them that their negativity is causing a problem. It takes a lot of continuous strength to stand up to the Negative Nobody’s in our lives, but I guarantee when you do, you are one step closer to making your dream come true.
Dreams can’t live in a negative atmosphere. So many people have had their dreams torn down, or taken away from them that when they try to be positive about a dream only the negative parts of life flow to them. Once you get over the negative stop revisiting it. It doesn’t do anyone a bit of good to rehash something over and over again. Let it go, find something positive to focus on. Get a big calendar and every day for one week find something positive about each day. Write it down on the calendar day. “Today is August 23, 2013, I worked out for an hour, I only ate 4 cookies today, I met three new people today.”
After the week is up, go back and look at all the ways your life is positive. Then for the next week, on that same calendar write down something positive about yourself (this is extremely helpful if you have a negative view of yourself.) “August 23, 2013, today when I looked in the mirror I said “I love you, gorgeous! Look at your beautiful long red hair” Trust me your life will change and day-by-day you will transform your negative world into a spring of positivity. People will tell you “Wow, you’ve changed! What’s different about you?” You can respond with “I let go of the trash in my life!” Granted you may get the feeling like you don’t fit into your old group of friends or your family but that’s okay because then you have the chance to lead them to better place or maybe it’s time to spread your wings and fly.
Don’t let the Negative Nobodys steal your dreams or crush your spirit!
