      Yes, Merle. When you can concentrate on the things that really matter and focus, it’s easier to understand what may be wrong. Then it’s a case of dealing with it.

    You do have to stay positive but sometimes outside influences kind of take over as well. Sometimes I wonder about these outside feedback, do they really think they are helping or are they jealous of your success. Thanks for sharing your story. Anita

    It is amazing how much credence we give the negative stories. They say, “sticks and stones…” but words definitely can hurt if we let them. The key is not to let them. That is our choice.

    Great article and video. I try not to listen to other people but sometimes it is very hard not to listen to the negative comments. I don't have a hard time to speak out but sometimes it gets me in trouble. I am not subtle. I do believe negativity will take over but in business I have been told to let it roll off your back as not everyone is going to like what you are doing or are jealous of your success. Thanks for sharing.

    I agree with Joyce, our negative thoughts often get too much attention. We have to let the negativity go and focus on the possibilities.

    It is amazing how many let the negatives in Joyce. I agree that we should never let them, but in many people’s case it’s easier to say than do.
