Surround yourself with positive people; those who energise you. That doesn’t mean you should not spend time with people who share their views or disagree with you from time to time. Those people are valuable; they challenge you, your ideals and your beliefs. But people who constantly criticise, antagonise, complain and gossip are negative people who can suck the life out of you. If you can’t help them see the good in people or find the positive side of life, then remember not to let them bring you down into despair.
“Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.”
The same is true in reverse.
