Our own confidence depends on our society and people who surrounds us. Wherever we go, pessimists follow us just like our own shadows. If our colleagues or friends are pessimists then it may make a dent on our confidence as well. The best part is, just ignore them and concentrate on our work.
I read a story about Robert Fulton.
Robert Fulton invented the steamboat.
On the banks of the Hudson River he was displaying his new inventions. The pessimists and the skeptics were gathered around to observe. They commented that it would never start. Low and behold, it did.
As it made its way down the river, the pessimists who said it would never go, started shouting, “It never would stop.”
What an attitude!
It happens with all of us. Whenever we talk about new ideas, people raises their questions. Pessimists stand and start criticizing.
“You Will Never Reach Your Destination, If You Stop And Throw Stones At Every Dog That Barks. Better To Throw Biscuits And & Move On…”
Break this Pessimist barrier and move.
We must never respond to these situations or pessimism. Try your best to achieve your goals and change the world.
“When you have vision it affects your attitude. Your attitude is optimistic rather than pessimistic.”
