Naysayers -Tell Them To Shut Up



When I was young, I listened to those people and worked hard to prove them wrong, to succeed despite the naysaying and mean wishes. As I grew older, I learned to ignore the naysayers. I learned that when people try to rain on my parade, I move my parade. In other words, when I encounter naysayers I literally tell them to shut up and stay out of my dreams and my business. I put people out of my life who make me feel bad about myself. There are friends and family members who use to be in my life who are now dead to me. I don’t miss the loss and I do not feel bad about it. My life is better and richer when I don’t have to worry that those who are supposed to care are going to hurt me.

Look at your life. Divide those you interact with into two groups: naysayers and others. When the naysayers start trying to put salt in the game aka crush your dreams and spirit tell them “shut up.” Do not worry about being rude. After all, those people don’t mind being rude and trying to destroy you! Tell the naysayers to keep your name and dreams out of their mouths. If they cannot shut up and cannot keep their poison to themselves, put them out of your life. It may be hard to do and it may be painful at first, but do it! Take it from me, you will be better for it!



It is terrific to realize that you can control the naysayers in your life by telling them to shut up! So, the question for you this terrific day is, when are you going to stop listening to the naysayers and start listening to yourself?

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • I like when naysayers doubt me. I use their negativity as my motivation.

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

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

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

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

    • 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.
