We all know a toxic person; it could be your relative or some idiot in your class who always likes to point out the negative.
Jason was a top student at school and was a very bright guy. His grandfather loved him and meant well, but he had a very small view of the world.
Jason was in the process of making plans to go to university overseas. He really wanted to travel and experience all that life had to offer. His Grandpa could only see the world from his point of view and would make negative remarks every time Jason shared one of his dreams. Grandpa would say things like, “You will never be able to survive in Dublin if you go there by yourself.”
Luckily, Jason didn’t listen to his grandpa and just kept on going and planning for his move to Europe. What we believe we are capable of achieving truly determines our lives. Don’t let the negative remarks from limited people become your reality.
Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.— Henry Ford
