Embrace the distance – letting negative people leave your orbit!


Ok, let’s just jump into this! God’s continued strength and love this morning! 

We all, and I do mean ALL, have negative people in our lives, draining our life force crippling our own self-worth at times..

You know, the never seem to be happy with where they are in life and there is always a crisis of some sort going on with them. They constantly dismiss any of your ideas as not good enough, unworkable or your choices are loose and poorly thought out….. After all, can’t you see all of the downsides that they see so easily? To the negative eye and person, there are obvious downsides, pitfalls and stumbling blocks to everything. They are stalled, crippled and riddled with anxiety to the point where they never really get anything accomplished. THEY NEVER GET GOING BECAUSE THEY NEVER GET STARTED!!!

Wait….on the one or two rare occasions they do actually get something done, they immediately start to point out all of the negatives, flaws and mistakes in the project and…..stop.

Ok… stay with me…once you have identified the negative influences in your life, situation or environment and stopped listening to them/it, they will start moving out of your orbit. EMBRACE THIS DISTANCE!!! They will get more distant from you as you stop seeking their advice, stop answering the phone when they call or start minimizing your contact with them. Do this!!! If it’s your friend, just be a friend outside of business and prosperity! 

Once they know you are distancing yourself from them..they will let the distance grow on its own, as they have already realized their waning influence on you. Some will fight you vehemently to regain their influence and use guilt trips or other intimidation to try and lure or bring you back into their orbit once again. DON’T ALLOW THIS! Most of the time it is family, close friends and confidants who fight the hardest to sink their claws back into you your orbit once they realize you know what’s up, and the jig is up! Ok…So stand firm, prepare to stand your ground with them and keep pushing towards your goals and objectives. Don’t let them drag you back into their deep overbearing black hole of negative connotations once you have broken their orbit and escaped! 

Allow the power of positivity to maintain your focus and allow God’s direction to be a compass.

Here are a few ways to keep your orbit free of negativity!

– Value yourself!

– Cultivate a powerful positive attitude about yourself and your projects.

– Remain steadfast in rejection!

– Identify all negative influences and banish them from your orbit. Pray for discernment!

– Engage with good, positive and mission-driven people!

You see, humans are truly social creatures and derive a lot of our happiness from belonging to social groups, clubs, fraternities etc..Once you have eliminated the negative influences from your life, you can then fill your new social circle and orbit with more positive, uplifting and upbeat support systems. Folks who encourage, inspire and promote and support you in the things you do…give you a realistic outlook without a negative undertone. 

So… Seek out positive folks, cultivate your own fields, find new inspiring friendships and see how much happier you feel with them in your new orbit and life.

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

Stand Tall in your orbit! Ask the living God to be your strength, your rock and your armor! Allow his light to shine on you, to you and through you, forever pressing forward in your pursuit of accomplishment and happiness!!!

Have a powerful Sunday and an outstanding Next week! 

Control your orbits!
