Striving to reach your goals and be successful can be hard enough by itself. The last thing you need is a bunch of negativity thrown your way, right? Friends and family shooting your ideas down, playing the devils advocate, isolating you or making you feel guilty for wanting to pursue your dreams.

As much as it hurts, there is little you can do to stop it. You can’t change other people. But you can learn to deal with the negativity in a healthier way.

In this video we talk about:

  • The reason that the people in your life are being unsupportive
  • How to distance yourself from the negativity without hurting their feelings
  • How to move forward with your dreams without feeling guilty

Key takeaways:

  • Be empathetic and remember why they are likely acting the way they are
  • Make it about them
  • Have an exit strategy
  • Be a positive role model

And always remember that if you truly want to make someone else happy, you need to take care of yourself first.
