Rule #2 IGNORE THEM - From 7 Rules Of Life
IGNORE THEM - Don’t listen to other people. Live a life that is empowering to you.
There are a lot of voices in this world that will frustrate, confuse, irritate and drive negativity deep into your soul. It is so important to keep your mind focused on the things that motivate and energize you.
From The Message Bible, Isiaiah 26:3 says; “People with their minds set on you [God], you [God] keep completely whole, Steady on their feet, because they keep at it and don’t quit.”
I have had to learn to shut down streams of negativity no matter where they were coming from. If we listen to negative people, we will think negative thoughts and pretty soon begin to feel overwhelmed, sad, weak and defeated. Don’t let anyone steal your joy or your happiness. Don’t empower anyone to take your smile.
Don’t let the world change your smile. Use your smile to change the world.
It is important to your mental, physical and spiritual well-being to take some time to reflect. Think about the things that make you smile and listen to the people who encourage you and make you feel good about yourself. Let the negative streams go in one ear, and out the other. Don’t give negative thoughts a place to stay.
Empower yourself, by dis-empowering others who don't empower you!
