I have notice when you say to people, what you are going to do, there are certain people who say how you can't do that, how you can't make the money, you want to make, why do people live in such a negative world, and not a positive world, I don't like being around people like that, are these negative people afraid, that you will be successful, and they will not be, I think fear controls them.

They say that because they can't do it themselves and they are scared you might outsmart them.

You are right about that, and I see alot of that, that is why I don't take, advice from other people they don't want you, to have more than they have.

For some reason, a lot of people hold a lot of doubts. Especially for things that haven't been done before or they haven't seen done. Take Bill Gates and the internet for example. People were doubting left and right that it would be successful "oh no one will want to use that!" they said. But guess what? EVERYONE wanted it. Sometimes, you just have to ignore others' doubts, and ignore your own as well, and do what you have to do.

Because some people can't help being negative. Or they themselves want to try it out but just don't have the nerve to actually do it. Most of the time, those are their own fears that they are voicing out to you. It makes them feel better when someone actually listened to them, its like proving to themselves that they did the right thing by not trying it out since nobody would do it as well. We should not let other people's fears and prejudices dictate on how we should live our lives. Even if the chances of succeeding is so slim, you should be the one to say yes or no and not because someone else decided against it. Take that 5% chance. Or have 0% for not trying at all.

Yeah. I have observed that kind of people. Oh well, never mind them. Maybe they do not know you well. They judge in outside appearance because people in a real world judge us in the outside appearance and they do not know what is in our heart. That is a harsh reality we encounter in real life. I think if we ignore those people who says negative to us and prove to them that we can do it, maybe they'll change their mind.

Never say never to yourself,this is the basic thing.In the big big world,people are waiting to see how you fail,don' they.Don't care much about them and always be cautious about what you are going to do,that's how you achieve your dream.

We are just lucky we are not one of them. But the fact that we are surrounded by negative people can somehow affect us. I personally have this people around me so there are times that I don't talk about what I do. When I posted some payment proof for example on fb and they saw it, they will say 'Wow! how did you do it?" But when you tell them how, they would say they cannot do it. So it only means that they are thinking negative things because they know they cannot do it themselves. I think we just ignore them. Have a nice day!
