Isn’t this the truth? There are almost seven billion people on this earth and one negative comment from one of them can get us down. Well I say “no more”! It’s time that we put negative people in their place. They have no right to say things that can ruin our lives, even for a minute. And even if they do direct a negative comment toward us, so what? It’s just one person’s opinion.
Let’s focus on the other six-plus million people who are great people. Those who give us praise and opportunities. Forget about the small number of people out there who want to bring us down. They’re not worth it. Mark Twain would categorize them as “small people”. Great people believe that you can become great as well.
As always, I’ll end on a positive note with a quote from Mark Twain (I couldn’t have said it better myself):
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
