Why Opinions Can Tear You Down

Lack of decision, is one of the biggest reasons people fail at what they are doing.

That, and the opinions of others.

Most people, who fail to accumulate the life they want, are generally easily influenced by the ‘opinion’ of others. They permit the newspapers and the gossiping neighbours to do their thinking for them.

Opinions are the cheapest commodity on earth, everyone has a flock of opinions ready to be shared with anyone who will accept them, some can be extremely helpful, others not so much.

If you are easily influenced by others opinions on your decisions, you are less likely to make them a reality, and because of this, much less likely to ever have a Desire of your own.in house wealth

Sometimes, close friends and relatives, without meaning to, often handicap the people closest to them, by offering opinions, sometimes through sarcasm which is meant to be humorous. It’s obviously never done in a nasty way but there are thousands of men and woman around the world that suffer from inferiority complexes, all because some well-meaning (but ignorant) person destroyed their confidence with their opinions or ridicule.

It’s a hard thing to change your circle, but the old saying “You are who you hang with” is very true, if your associating with people that prefer to tear you down instead of lift you up, how will you ever succeed?

If you want to be the best, you need to surround yourself with the best, or people that want to be their best selves also. You can’t allow cynicism and snarkiness into what you are doing, you will be less likely to follow through with your decisions and change your future for the better.

We have a brain and mind of our own, so we must use them, we must reach our own decisions. If there is information you need and answers you seek, search for yourself or ask your Mentors, people who have already walked the path and are more knowledgeable than you.

It’s typical of people, who have little understanding in a subject, to try and give the impression that they know everything; these people talk too much and listen to little. We were given two ears and one mouth for a reason; by listening to people more knowledgeable than us we are giving ourselves the chance to make informed decisions.

And by making informed decisions, surrounding ourselves with the best of the best and leaving behind the narky opinionated ‘friends’, we will have better luck climbing the Mountain of Success as we will be using the right tools to get to the top.
