Say “No” to Drugs… and Naysayers!

I'm still nameless~

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” – Mahatma Ghandi

Me: <Interesting and thought-provoking concept> (ShamelessPlug)

Negative Fella1: You’re mad.

Negative Fella2: You’re crazy.

Negative Fella3: What makes you think you can do it?

Negative Fella4: Simpsons did it.

Negative Fella 5:  O.J did it.

Negative Fella 6: HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH~

Negative Fella 7: Right. (Sarcasm)

Negative Fella 8: You’re dreaming. (Not in a good way)

Negative Fella 9: If that would work, others would have done it by now.

Negative Fella 10: Meh.

I’m sure you’ve heard some, if not all of the above before. And sometimes they get to us. Sometimes they change our lives. Sometimes, because of them, we stop dreaming.

What we really need, I feel, is faith in our dreams. Believe in what you love; believe in your passions and dreams. But most importantly, believe in YOURSELF.

It’s always good to discuss your ideas with people. But when negative comments come your way, consider them. Think about them. Question them. Do NOT just take everything thrown your way as the truth. Try and understand why your ideas aren’t accepted and ask for feedback on how to improve them. Negative feedback can be the most valuable feedback you can hope for. But make sure listening to the right stuff.

Make sure you hear everything. But listen only to words that bear wisdom and good faith.

No one can rebuke a passionate man. Believe in your passions. That’s the best argument.

How do you deal with negative people? Do drop a comment on your experiences or queries~ I’d love to hear from you! =D
