I pride myself on being an eternal optimist. I sincerely believe that everything always works itself out and that the best is just right around the corner. So you can only imagine how much I detest pessimistic people. Whew Lawd…the negative attitude, low vibe conversation, and lack of motivation are enough to drive me crazy. Yet truth be told…those are not even the most dangerous effects of dwelling with pessimistic people.

One of the best things you can do for your growth and development is to surround yourself with like-minded and high vibe personable people. The reason this needs to be part of your strategic development is that your circle eventually becomes a direct reflection of your net worth. And let me put it bluntly…if your circle consists of a bunch of broke folks…you are in danger of becoming and/or staying broke too. In other words…mama got it right when she said…"birds of a feather flock together."

This brings me back to the topic at hand: Dwelling with pessimistic people is dangerous for the following reasons:

1. Unconscious Thinking: pessimistic people seem to lack common sense. Common sense feeds your instincts. When you ignore your instincts you begin making impulsive decisions.

2. Distorted Vision: pessimistic people can only see what's right in front of them. In other words, they lack vision and are only capable of seeing what's on the surface. They miss the depth of potential and possibilities. And last time I checked….people without vision…PERISH.

3. Loss of Voice: pessimistic people create a ton of noise, but are rarely saying anything of significance. Your voice is your most powerful weapon in creating the life of your dreams. If the people around you speak nonsense…before you know it you start speaking the same language.

4. Compromising: pessimistic people are rarely striving for excellence because their negativity blocks their blessings. This means instead of seeking better they have deiced to settle for mediocre and boring.

5. Death of Spirit: pessimistic people are the way they are because their spirit is full of pollution. This means their heart is blocked and their mindset is buried in doubt, fear, and chaos.

Being a willing participant in a relationship with pessimistic people is entering into a continuous cycle of unproductive patterns. But here's the good news….patterns can be broken by a simple decision. That means all you have to do is activate the power of CHOICE.

You don't have to save for it. You don't have to pray for it. You don’t have to speak to a professional. All you have to do is choose to release the negativity and seek a NEW crew of people who are not running around using their time and energy clucking like a bunch of chickens…but instead are focused on figuring out how to SOAR.
