Default Dave Tate on Negative People

Dave Tate on negative people:


Negative people are too much of a pain in the ass to spend much time with. If you can’t avoid them, then only communicate when you have to.

These people do not have the power to bring you down or ruin your day. Only you have the power to do this and the sooner you realize this, the better off you will be.

Negative people are also the one’s who believe they are experts in everything and go out of their way to offer unsolicited advice on just about every topic under the sun to prove how smart they are. Remember this, those who really know don’t need to show. Their results do the speaking for them.

Surrounding yourself with people who are smarter than you and know how to keep their head up and look for solutions are the ones you want to spend most your time with. Find people who are “solution” oriented not “excuse oriented”. If you put yourself with those who are better than you at a specific subject or skill you WILL increase your game – you will get better. I do agree with something Tony Robbins said many times, “Love your family and friends, but choose your peer groups. You can’t pick your family and friendship can run deep. You can and should develop peer groups who hold high expectations of themselves and YOU.”

If you begin to become negative, you need people around you to pull your head out of your ass. These people are not easy to find but they’re out there.

Destroy That Which Destroys You
