Focus on this group of people…

How is your weekend?

My wife and I went to Recto to buy frames for our silk embroidery crafts that we bought in Vietnam last year.

Mas mura kase dun kesa sa Mall. Diskarte lang!

Do you remember when you were a child that there are people who always angry with you or don’t like you? Even though you are not doing something wrong with them.

Think of it for a while and try to know the reason why.

There are three groups of people affecting our daily lives. I learned this from the book of James Altucher.

  1. People who hate you
  2. People who don’t care about you
  3. People who love you

The first group of people is the one I mentioned above. People who hate you.

Anything you will do even right or wrong, they will always hate you. Like, when you are planning to:

  • Start a business
  • Start to invest
  • Buy a new house or car

They always have something to tell you to discourage, stop and drag you down.

As they say, “haters gonna hate”. They are the “dream stealers”.

The second group of people are those who don’t care about your thoughts, ideas and dreams. People who don’t care about you.

These are the people at your community, school or work that don’t listen on what you will say or do.

It really hurts when someone ignore your great idea, good thought and work.

I suggest you not to focus on these two groups of people.

If they tell or you hear something from that won’t help to reach your goals or dreams, you just need disregard them.

You cannot please everyone as they say.

I want you to concentrate on this last group of people who are always on your side no matter what. People who love you.

They will support you in your aspirations in life.

They believe that you can reach anything you want in life.

They are the people you can lean on when you “hit rock bottom”, made mistakes and life drags you down.

You must always focus your attention and put all your efforts to them.

You will be more happy and successful.

I promised, you will feel better when you master this principle. You just have to practice and internalize it.

It will help you to persevere when life knocks you down and when you get stuck in reaching your goals and dreams in life.

To your financial success,
