Civility? Avoid Negative People

From Reinvention 101: Bold Ideas on Reinventing Yourself:

You can get very depressed staying glued to the news.  No one seems to be happy and depression is rampant.

Civility is the trending topic after the terrible incident in Tucson last month (which had less to do with civility as much as sanity).  Civility in government, in politics, in the media, on social networks, etc.

Unfortunately, many people would rather drag other people down to their level than lifting themselves up.

It feeds their insecurity.  They can only feel good when everyone else is bad.  It sells papers, gets listeners, makes people want to tune in.  But for all the wrong reasons.

There is always another business liquidation, another 7,000 employees laid off, more bad economic news, the list goes on.  And many feed on that information.  They are obsessed with it.

You can’t let the depressive, negative people in life drag you down.  You must rise above the “downers” in life.

Leaders who don’t subscribe to fear mongering in the media or their social lives are the most successful.  They rid themselves of the negative influences and people.  You should, too if you want to go from being a loser to a leader.
