How To Keep The Negativity Out

I was presenting to a group of sales reps on Friday and one of them asked:

How do you keep the negativity away or deal with people who aren’t of a growth mindset?”

I shared when I was 28 years old I was working out with my trainer Yuri and during our session, he asked me what I was reading these days.  I really had not been reading consistently since I graduated from University.  Maybe I was read out!

He inspired me to start learning and reading again on fitness, business, sports. I committed to one book a month for that year. I found I was able to offer more value in conversations with our customers and other thought leaders. I was growing and learning and it felt good.

As I look back now, I think I was a more fixed mindset person.

It changed the way I thought about who I spent time with and those who were more negative or fixed mindset I started to separate from.

I focused more on managing my energy.

Tony Robbins said: “You are a direct reflection of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”

This is about how you manage your energy and expectation.

Yuri helped set a standard for me and challenge me. He didn’t judge but gave me an opportunity to join the team.
