Avoid them and set the limit

This photo was from one of my trips in California. We were on our way to Brentwood from San Francisco. The photo reminds me about what I would title, “avoid them and set the limit. ” According to an impressive article this week, the author use the word success and explained that life won’t always go the way we want it to, but when it comes down to it, we have the same 24 hours as everyone else.”

It reminds me of this truth that Successful people make their time count. Instead of complaining about how things could have been or should have been, they reflect on everything they have to be grateful for. Then they find the best solution available, tackle the problem and move on.
When the negativity comes from someone else, successful people avoid it by setting limits and distancing themselves from it. Think of it this way: If the complainer were smoking, would you sit there all afternoon inhaling the secondhand smoke? Of course not. You’d distance yourself, and you should do the same with all negative people.
A great way to stop complainers in their tracks is to ask them how they intend to fix the problem they’re complaining about. They will either quiet down or redirect the conversation in a productive direction.
