Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions

We all want to be successful, but only a few will be successful. If you want to be among those who will be successful, you should be ready to make yourself uncomfortable. You are going to be ready to make yourself uncomfortable because you need the right environment to succeed. Without the right environment, you will be successful, but it will take longer to do.

If you want to succeed, you must create the right environment for yourself to grow. The right people. The right mentors. The right minds. If you surround yourself with people who are not wishing you well, you have lots of work to do. If you need to grow badly, you need to let them go. Don’t let people pull you back. You need to be around people who will push you to succeed, not those who will pull you to stay where you are. You need doers around you. You need like-minded people around you. They will push you to try new things.

Mark Twain said, “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.”

Yes, if you want to grow and do great things, you need to stay away from small-minded people. You need to stay away from little people. If not, you will be like them.


If you are not happy, ask yourself these questions

“If a man is troubled, perplexed, sorrowful, or unhappy, let him ask:

What mental seeds have I been sowing?

What seeds am I sowing?

What is my attitude towards others?

What seeds of trouble and sorrow and unhappiness have I sown that I should thus reap these bitter weeds?”

James Allen

These questions will change your life and how you treat people

“Having clothed himself with humility, the first questions a man asks himself are:

How am I acting towards others?

What am I doing to others?

How am I thinking of others?

Are my thoughts of, and acts towards others prompted by unselfish love?”

James Allen

Pay attention to one word: OTHERS

The way you see yourself is the way you see others. The way you treat yourself is the way you treat others.
