Positive thoughts bring positive outcomes. Say this to yourself 10x in the morning, 10x walking the dog, 10x when your boss is giving you the next project, or whenever you feel the need to. You’re not allowed to think negatively. I repeat… you are NOT allowed to think negatively.
If someone is putting any doubt in that brain of yours about an idea that you’re debating pursuing, I recommend you show them the door because there is simply no time for that.
I’m a big believer in keeping positive energy around you at all times.
Ever been to a party or event and everyone seems to be having a good time except that one person in the corner standing there as if life couldn’t get any worse for them? Yeah, I don’t like those people & netiher does anyone else. It throws off the vibe, people get distracted, and it overall just doesn’t do any good for anyone. Cut these types of people out before they rub off on you too much.
I think one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned over the past year is to constantly evaulate the people surrounding me and making sure they’re the ones who fuel my energy levels up to the mountain tops. They make me feel as if I can do anything I possibly put my mind to & it gets my blood flowing like I just hit the game winning 3 for the Boston Celtics (shoutout to Larry Legend.)
These don’t have to be people with similar backgrounds, goals, or interests… they just need to be people who respect you for who you are, encourage you, and they want nothing more than to see you succeed. When you’re asking “why should I even try building this product, its going to take 10 months, cost x amount of dollars, blah blah blah” they’re the ones asking “why not?”
Remember — Positive thoughts will bring positive outcomes. 1 down, 9 more to go.
