EP03: How to be Positive and Live Your Best Life in a World Where Others Want to Bring You Down with Gillian Robinson

It’s true, we live in a world where there is quite a lot of negativity. You just have to turn on the news to see. Negativity is all around us. But, so is positivity and it’s up to you to audit where you direct your attention.

No matter what you decide to do with your life, what career path you choose or where you decide to go everyone is going to have an opinion. And, it can often be negative. But, again where are you going to choose to focus?

The opinions of others, are none of your business. Just like, your opinion of others is none of their business and, taking control (and responsibility) for your own life is the best and easiest way to enjoy life. You can take on board advice, and guidance from others but at the end of the day every decision you make is yours. You are in complete control of your own life – even when it doesn’t feel like it.

This type of outlook and mindset of life, is one key way on how you can be positive and life your best life in a world where people want to bring you down. And, in this episode of the Grow2Gether Podcast we’re joined by valued community member Gillian Robinson as we discuss this and much more.

In this episode, we dive into Gillian’s story and how she is overcoming the naysayers to build a business she loves that serves others!

Oh, and remember – those who try to bring you down are already below you.

Top points from this episode:

  • Young people are following trends rather than listening to themselves, and who they are just to fit in with others. You become the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with so be careful to who you are spending your time with.
  • People can be so nasty and negative, complaining about everything, putting others down and gossiping all the time rather than taking control and focusing on their own life. Taking control of your own life is the best and easiest way to enjoy life!
  • Your friends, family, loved ones and/or people in general will always have opinions on what you’re doing and how you are living your life. The key thing to remember is that, it’s none of your business – just as what they’re doing is none of yours. This doesn’t mean you can’t give advice from time to time, just be mindful over the advice you’re getting and/or giving.
  • Too many people don’t actually listen to their loved ones, friends or the people around them as their sub-conscious bias sets in and are in such a rush to just share what they want to share rather than having meaningful conversations. It’s having a negative effect on how as a society we are building relationships with others.
  • Plus, much much more!
