Surrounding Yourself With Positive People

This week I took the family to a Lady Gaga concert. Now I must tell you I am not a fan, and that is was AWESOME! Did you know she was told over and over again she would be nothing! She couldn’t sing! She couldn’t play the piano! She was ugly! She shared this story with audience and how she persisted and never gave up to fulfill her dream.

NOW she is one of the top if not the top performer in the world! How’s that for confidence?

Confidence is so very important in anything you do, and when you are first starting out in building your business from home you must have confidence. In many cases confidence can be the one thing that makes or breaks you as far as how much money you’re going to make or if you’re even going to stay in the business for very long. Even if you have a lot of confidence it can be hard to maintain it if you are surrounded by negative people all the time. That’s why it’s so important that you are constantly surrounding yourself with positive uplifting people.

Anytime you do something that is different or off the beaten path people are going to have strong opinions about it. While you might have a lot of people who think what you’re doing is great you will definitely have a few people (sometimes more than a few) who don’t approve of it or don’t believe that you can succeed. You have to learn to ignore the negative people if you want to be truly successful working from home. It only takes one or two really negative people to make you doubt yourself and your business.

That’s why spending time with positive people is so important.

Hopefully the people who are closest to you will be some of the most positive people. However, if they aren’t you can still find comfort in spending time with other people who are in your same business or work from home as well. Chances are that they have gone through the same thing that you are going through. When you have those people that you can talk to and confide in when times get tough you are much less likely to give up on your dream. So find and reach out to people who you can trust to keep you motivated and help build your confidence so that you don’t give up.

Finally, you don’t have to get rid of all the negative people in your life. You just have to learn to ignore them. All home based business owners have dealt with people who don’t believe in them and if you keep going and continue your path to success chances are they will change their minds. Until then ignore the negative comments and always keep a good group of positive people around you at all times.
