Success is not contagious, it comes through hard work, self-motivation, and meeting the right people. The good thing in life is that you have freedom of association. You choose who to interact with or not. Such relationships can either build you or destroy you because people have different personalities.
Therefore, surrounding yourself with goal chasers, people who yearn for success, and optimistic people will positively impact your life. The psychologist believes that your company contributes to 80% of your success.
However, I must admit that the most challenging task is to notice toxic people because at first, they disguise themselves as good and aggressive people only for you to realize they have been the ones dragging you. They hinder your growth process in achieving your success and that is why you need to avoid them as early as possible.
Well, let us have a look at some toxic personalities that you should distance yourself from before it is too late!
Doubters are pessimists. These are people who don't believe in themselves. They feel that everything in life is impossible and they have built some limits that suppress their growth towards success. They always have theories about why things are not working out for them. They think success was only meant for extraordinary people.
Don't associate with such people because they will kill your morale and induce self-doubt. You will always lack the confidence to pursue your goals.
This is the worst group of people who typically complain about everything in life. They don't perceive anything positive. They will always criticize everything that comes in their way. Their negativity is contagious, and you should flee from such a group of people. Nothing good can come from them. They will make you see the bad side of everything, and eventually, you will be lost, and it will be hard for you to trace your way back. Complainers are never successful because they are too blind to notice the opportunities that have been presented to them.
These are complacent people who work for long hours a week for a job that they are not interested in. They live within the constraints of the society hence they have no goals in life. Their lives are too obvious because they are contented with their lifestyles.
The Entitled Ones
This is a group of people who believe everything in life is entitled to them. They never try anything new beyond their comfort zones. When their friends are putting in the effort to succeed they become jealous which can be destructive. They become envious to an extent where they can stage negative intentions to make you not achieve your goals. They can kill your motivation because they have developed a mentality that the world is unfair to them.
If you want to live up to your dream life avoid the personalities that I have mentioned above. You might be a dreamer, a fighter, and a focused person but such people can kill your potential, and you will lose everything that you have been fighting for.
It is essential to evaluate every person that you associate with so that you might not regret it later in life.
