In our lives we have all done, or will do, some “spring cleaning”. It may be once a year, once a month, or even once a day. We all have had the opportunity to get rid of something.
Now when you think of getting rid of something, what is the first thing that comes to mind? The #1 answer may be old clothes, whether too small, outdated or even too big.
Some of us want to hang on to those things, and it doesn’t do anything for us but COLLECT DUST!
Well I’m not talking about clothes in this case. I am referring to one particular thing:
Negative People – Most of the time they don’t realize they are hurting you, but I’m sad to say that some do know. Negative people try to suck the life out of you and pull you down to their level of acting and thinking.
They distract you, interrupt you, and try to hold you back from fulfilling your destiny. They even try to belittle and criticize you, become jealous of you and try to ruin your reputation. This is why you have to watch the company you keep, and stay clear of a negative atmosphere.
Negative Habits – Becoming complacent and lazy with a “don’t care” attitude can take over your life, if you continue to have that mindset. Negative habits can cause you to stop growing and producing results: it can paralyze your thought process.
It can stop you from doing what you need to do to rise. Negativity stunts your growth both mentally and spiritually.
So in order to accomplish, achieve, finish, conquer, prosper, fulfill, succeed, help, empower, encourage, and inspire you must to one thing:
GET RID OF ALL THE NEGATIVITY!!
Walk with the wise and become wise; hand with fools and they will get you into trouble – Proverbs 13:20
