Everyone wants to be successful. But most people do not believe that success is attainable. So, they offer excuses for why success has eluded them. Excuses such as bad luck, lack of sufficient funds, too old, or too young. What is worse, these same people will gladly give you multiple reasons why you will never become successful, either.
When you face this negativity, do not be discouraged. Instead, take a long look at the person. Are they living the life you want to live? Probably not. So, take their negativity and use it as your motivation to prove them wrong. Do not let them rob you of your dreams.
Finally, remember that you are a product of the company you keep. If you desire to be successful, surround yourself with amazing people. Find other like-minded people with dreams of their own. And build each other up with encouragement.
