Naysayers -Tell Them To Shut Up — 31 Comments

  1. I always feel like the new year is perfect to stop wasting time on people who bring little value to your life. Say no to the naysayers in 2015!

  2. It’s unfortunate that in this world, people will drag you down more often than they will try to lift you up. I think much boils down to values of teamwork, respect etc. along with the perseverance that each person must, within themselves; possess in order to become successful.

  3. Great advice! I get so tired of hearing people be negative and try to squash your dreams. I love the quotes that you shared in this post. (Real Talk Moms).

  4. I like your attitude. Sometimes the best thing we can say to people is for them to mind their business and shut up! If they get ma andn leave us alone it is better for us all.

  5. I like your attitude. It is better to let them go and keep moving. You do not need them anyway!

  6. I agree, I am teaching my children this lesson now while they are young. I hope this will make it easier for them to brush off naysayers as they get older.

  7. i love this!! gonna save to refer back to it. its so important to let let people bring you down

  8. You are right, it is so important to just stay focused on our goals. Keep on movin’ on!

  9. I hate naysayers but it took me a looooong time to not listen to them!

  10. This is such a great post! I use it as motivation, I must be doing something right!

  11. This is my new motto, I had to let a few people go this year. They will only get my behind to kiss moving forward.

  12. I’ve never had a problem with telling people to shut up or mind their business. This is why people think I’m crazy lol. I love this post though. It will help someone who needs to hear it.

  13. The older I get, the more comfortable I am with who I am. It bothers me less and less what other people think and say. And, I’ve had more time to prove myself so there are less people around saying “You can’t” or “You shouldn’t”…I already have. 🙂

  14. It can be really hard to ignore negative people, but I never let them drag me down and I encourage my kids to do the same.

  15. I totally agree! It’s hard to ignore the negative people, but it’s because they’re the devil on our shoulders. I do my best to ignore them though.

  16. I like both your references and I really like the combination of Lincoln and the “Shake it Off” song!

  17. I think there is a song out right now that says…”Shake it Off, Shake it Off!” Like Abe Lincoln said, you can’t please ALL the people, ALL the time!

  18. Shake the negative off. There are only 24 hours in a day, how many do you want to give to bad people?

  19. I have a friend with five kids. When people ask her “are all those kids yours?” She always responds “Just these five.”

  20. I need to take this to heart. The negative is so in my life right now.

  21. I quit listening to naysayers years and years ago.If I hadn’t I would be surrounded by negativity all the time.

  22. Great post – there are so many i want to tell this too, I get tired of the ridicule. You have too many kids, yadda yadda yadda.

  23. I quit listening to naysayers years and years ago. It is one of the positive things about aging. You just don’t care about that kind of thing anymore.

  24. I just ignore people who doubt me. I used to hear a lot of naysayers when I started homeschooling my kids. Now two of them are in college with scholarships, and the naysayers have disappeared.

  25. Yes! Sometimes it is hard to ignore the naysayers, especially when we have doubts ourselves. During those hard times, it is even more important that we ignore and shut out the naysayers.

  26. Such great advice. I try to be my own cheerleader and ignore those naysayers, but it can be tough at times, can’t it?

How do these ideas work in your world?
