Today’s message can really change everything for you. It will change your relationships, your family, your business, your career and your future. Because the reality is, we all have negative influences in our lives. You know, those people who mock, criticize, condemn, complain, blame or don’t believe in, you. They could be your friends, family, coworkers or even business partners.

Mockers will mock, criticizers will criticize, and condemners will condemn. It’s just what they do. And they don’t do it just to you – they do it to everyone around them.

So what do you do with those negative people?

Well, you have 2 choices.

First, you can remove them from your life.

Your environment is everything. I’m sure you’ve heard birds of a feather flock together, and oh, how true that is! So stop and ask yourself a few questions. Who do you surround yourself with? What do you talk about? What do you watch on TV? What do you read? Is it positive? Is it beneficial? Does it spur you on and push you toward success?

These things are all part of your environment. If your environment is negative, remove that negativity.

Your second option, learn how to deal with negative people.

See, negative people actually do have a purpose in your life. I know what you’re thinking right now, “Dani, the only purpose those people have is to tear me down and tick me off!” Uh-uh, not so fast!

Those people are in your life to test how badly you want it, whatever “it” might be for you. Are their negative comments enough to make you quit working toward your goals?

Have you ever noticed being around negative people, provokes something in you that says, “Wow, I sure don’t want to be like that!” Why is that? Because those negative people help you define how you do – and don’t – want to act. It actually shapes who you will become!

They also inspire your endurance and perseverance. Do not be overwhelmed by the challenges you face. The times when you are under pressure and face negativity, are the times that produce perseverance inside of you. So don’t give up and don’t give in to those negative people! Press on, so you may become mature and lack in nothing.

Another thing you have to understand about negative people is, no matter who you are, what you do, or what level of success you attain, there will always be negative people around you.

But remember you cannot change other people! Do not take their negativity personally. It is THEIR problem, not yours! Let ‘em mock, criticize and complain, while you make a ton of money, crush your debt and live a life that exceeds your dreams!

Stop whining and complaining about the Negative Nellies and Neds in your life – it makes you sound just like them! When you focus on negative people and things, you actually attract more negativity into your life. So choose to focus on the positive things. Choose to focus on your goals. Quit being the victim, saying “I can’t afford it,” or “I can’t do it” or “Nobody believes in me!”

Today, stop focusing on who is against you. You don’t need everyone to support you.
