If You’re A Negative Person, You Just Might Suck!

I don’t get it. Why do people knock down others who have obviously worked hard to get where they are today?

I’m not just talking about one particular subject either, I’m talking just about anywhere in life. If someone has worked hard, made the sacrifices (which no one else sees by the way), did what they needed to do, people still say “she got lucky” or “he knew someone high up” or “they don’t know what it’s like to have it rough like me.” You know, that could be true some of the time, but that’s a really REALLY small percent, at least I think so.

Since I usually write about fitness stuff quite a bit, let me tell you story about something that happened to me a few years back. I was once accused of using steroids because of amount of muscle growth I developed one summer in my younger days. Unless steroids are yellow and come in a Mountain Dew can, I’ve never touched the stuff. All I did was work out with my buddies, be consistent and eat right (well, outside the Dew!).

Did I set out to achieve that look? Nope, I was just lifting weights with my buddies and having fun doing it. I can’t even imagine what I could have accomplished if I actually took things serious, but that was WAY before I was totally engrossed in this fitness stuff. But I can look back now and realize what CAN be accomplished with hard work and consistency.

The moral of my little fitness related story is that if someone does workout and eat right, awesome stuff can come of it. BUT, beware of the people who are out to get you.

What amazes me to this day is the person who goes out of their way to talk negative about someone else. What’s the point? If that’s you, all you’re doing is letting the whole word know what kind of hateful person you really are!

A good example is today’s politics. I don’t care where you political compass is, but do you sit behind a keyboard and bash someone who doesn’t believe politically the same as you…
