    “Whatever your mind can conceive and believe the mind can achieve regardless of how many times you may have failed in the past.” ~ Napoleon Hill
    Yesterday at BOLD, we watched the short movie, “The Miracle Man”. It was an individual who crashed a plane and overcame the medical professions option that he would be nothing more than a paraplegic, living on a respirator, in a wheelchair, never to able to talk or eat again. I watched it a couple of times again when I got in last night as there was a lot to absorb.
    One of the things that stood out to me was the sign “SNIOP” which means Susceptible to the Negative Influences of Other People. This word was coined by the late Zig Ziglar. It seems as if I am constantly bombarded by the naysayers that are close to me that say I cannot do this or it is impossible to do that. Give it up! I believe that anything is possible when I ignore them and accept their limitations, visualize, hold fast to my goals, believe
and take action.

And that my friends, is my 2¢’s worth for this morning.

Good morning Michael.  Right now at this time in my life I do not allow negative people or thoughts gain control of my thoughts or actions.  I just don't have the time to deal with negative people.

Excellent thoughts, Michael.  We need to go our own way and not allow the negative vibes of others to sidetrack us.

Hi Michael.  I have never heard that term SNIOP but I run from people like this.

You are so right - those around you can bring you up or bring you down.  choose your friends wisely and develop a thick skin for those that might send negative thoughts.

Hi Michael - hold fast to your dream and ignore the naysayers. They often are afraid that when a friend/family member/colleague succeeds, it will change the dynamics.

Interesting thoughts Michael. It is not always easy to keep negative thoughts out of my mind but I try and look at the bright side of life.

So very true!  Some people just hate to see others succeed because it reminds them of their own failures.
