Humans have a habit of seeking approval from people. Whenever we buy clothes, shoes, eat something, do something we seek approval from the people around us.

What is a Naysayer, a person who criticizes, objects to, or opposes something. The world is full of naysayers. 3 out of 4 people are naysayers. Arnold Schwarzenegger has emphasized on this a lot. He always says that one of the ways to be successful is that you have to stay away from the naysayers.

Humans have a habit of seeking approval from people. Whenever we buy clothes, shoes, eat something, do something we seek approval from the people around us. Sams is the case when we think about following our dream. I have a friend of mine, who wants to be a singer. He has been singing for many years hence he is good at it. However, whenever he shares his vision with someone, 9 out of 10 people motivate him against his dream. Some would say that there is a lot of competition, some would mock him by saying stop wasting your time, get a job & so on.

But he does not listen to them. After years of hard work, he has finally started singing in small concerts. He is just 25 & he is getting recognition. This is the force of staying away from naysayers. If he had listened to the people around him, who have no knowledge of music, he would also be doing a 9-5 job. When you don’t do what you love, you are committing spiritual suicide.

Same is the case with great Sachin Tendulkar when he was a kid, he was mocked as he is a short kid. If he had listened to naysayers, we would not have seen the God of Cricket. The world is filled with so many examples like these.

Hence, I would urge you to please, please do not listen to naysayers. They are many & I am sure you meet them each day, just shake hands with them & walk away. You will see yourself grow.
