Life won’t always go the way you want it to, but when it comes down to it, you have the same 24 hours in the day as everyone else does. 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 second-hand smoke?”
Of course not. You’d distance yourself, and you should do the same with all negative people.
