Natalie : Hi I'm Natalie Ledwell and this is the Inspiration Show. Now today I wanna talk about a topic that sadly is very common, and its dealing with negative people around you. Now I received an E-mail the other day and may be you can relate to this. It's from a girl called Amanda, and she says?
Hi Natalie. I've been watching your show and love your videos. (Thank you) I believe in law of attraction and I tried to stay positive when my family's being negative. They complain about everything and when I talk positive about law of attraction, they think I'm crazy. And they put down my ideas. This is very frustrating and I get upset that they don't understand or support me. I feel like they are stopping me from living my dream, always putting me down. How do I keep positive and live the life the way that I want. (That's from Amanda).
Now Amanda I feel very sorry that you don't feel supported by your family. But as I mentioned earlier, these is a very common issue that people experience. The important thing to remember here is that you are in control of your life and the way that you respond to the comments is also up to you. Now my best piece of advice in this situation is to don't take it personally. You see when someone is negative or there's something that hurts you or frustrates you, believe it or not it nothing has to do with you. People say negative things or act like this for many reasons. You know maybe they're having a bad day, you know maybe they frustrated themselves, you know many people are feeling the effects of a depressed economy at the moment because they have this in common with other people, it becomes a common topic in a conversation. What they don't realize is the more they talk about it, and put words to the universe that this is their situation, the more it attracted back to them and it remains their situation. Now the problem for most people is that they're in a habit of using the same language and talking negatively all the time. Now have you ever noticed that when you visit your family, you probably lived with yours, and lot of people would've visit their family over the reason of holidays, you find it you talk or respond to them differently to other people in your life, you know I actually realized a few years ago that most of my responses where the same as what I did with my brothers and sisters years ago , I was just in a habit of talking a certain way to them 'coz that's how I done it for years and I never thought to change the way to communicate to them. You know, well just a habit that I fall back into every time I was around them. So of course, I've changed that now and I've had a great relationship with all my seven brothers and sisters and my parents as well. You know it's very difficult when everyone around you and everyone you know growing up think a certain way, acts a certain way. It's all they know. Remember they're working from a place of history in familiar heredity programming from their past, you know to think differently from them takes personal strength than courage. So Amanda, you choose what your truth is, if you understand why your family thinks and acts in a certain way, it makes it easier for you to choose not to let their thoughts and action influences your thoughts and actions. You know, they decide their life, you decide yours. And we can't control other people when we apply the law of attraction, it only applies to us. So focusing on your happiness, you goals, your passion, and your life is how you overcome the negativity of people around you. Now don't worry too much about your family, you know if you were a good example to them, when you happen successful, those who want to will come to you and ask you to help them do the same. Now I honestly commend you for being strong and choosing to achieve more in your life, so keep focus on that and result, you can do it. So I hope you enjoy that answer, Amanda, and everyone got some information out of that as well.
