Limit your time with negative people.  People who manage to always find something negative in any situation should get limited time with you. Those folks (friends and/or family) who will give you a million and one reasons why YOU can't do something are the people to run from.

Make no mistake about it, negative folks are a cancer. And spending too much time with them will literally eat away at you on the inside til you wake up one day and your ambition is gone... you're living in fear, doubt, and worry. Nope...not in 2018! Start paying attention to how you feel when you leave a conversation with someone. If you feel refreshed, motivated, energized, keep them on your team. But if you leave that conversation feeling down, doubtful, and full of anxiety, CUT EM OUT!
