We all have the one or two friends that are always so pessimistic when we are trying to get things done in life. As much as you would not like to admit that they are, you can identify them as the friends that have no life – not accomplishing much, and are always constantly envious of your achievements. They always seem to bring you down and sap away all your energy, leaving you feeling as gloomy as they are. Well, to tell you the truth, it is probably time to sever all ties.
Perhaps it is your best friend, your girlfriend, or maybe even someone in your family. You have to think really hard on whether or not it actually is worth keeping in touch with them. While you might hold some fond memories of them, try to understand that they do not accept you, and are really constantly making an effort to hurt, belittle, and suck away at your motivation with only one objective: bring you down to their level.
They have not achieved anything in life, so they would not like to see you do so either. Held with envy, they are going to only make you feel worse and worse as they cannot share your enthusiasm, but rather take it away. Like leeches, they will suck the fun and excitement out of your life!
Trust me, the moment you sever these people from your presence, it will be a lot like getting a brick lifted off your chest. You will feel amazing and it is going to bring you a much better overall mindset and you will be on your way to greater success.
And once you reach the end of your journey, you will be able to look at all the people who have once held you back and smile.
