While it’s valuable—and fun—to listen to the positive coaches, mentors and friends in your life, it’s also imperative to ignore the downers, says master marketer Jerry Acuff.
“The unfortunate reality,” he explains, “is that some people don’t want you to accomplish your goals, because your achievement makes their mediocrity look worse. They tell you, ‘You can’t do that.’
“The truth is,” he adds, “most people don’t have goals, most people don’t aspire to much, and that is why so many people try to talk you out of your goals.”
