NEGATIVE People, How to Avoid The Family Negatrons

coping-with-negative-family-members

Negative people. You know the feeling. You get all exited about your brand new home based business when POW!… out of the blue comes a sucker punch.. Someone in your family doesn’t share your enthusiasm for your new venture.

It could be your spouse, partner, mum, dad, it could be anyone.. 

So what are you going to do about negative people?. Are you going to let them talk you out of your dream?. NO, of course not. Here’s what you really need to do when negative family try to rain on your parade..

So what makes a member of the family go into negative overdrive when they see you starting a new business or going after a new career?

Well, this could be for a number of reasons. The most common one is they don’t want to see you “disappointed” or “wasting your time”. however some reasons may be a little more “dark”
1) It is possible that as you move out of your “comfort zone”, this can also make a partner feel uncomfortable. It’s hard to explain but when people get comfortable with their life they don’t always like to see people, especially those closest to them, to be “rocking the boat”.. 
2) The “fear” factor. A partner or spouse may fear your success on the basis that if you do become successful, you may not need them as much. Partners can feel “left out”. And may think that you are more interested in that business, than you are in them.. 
3) They think you are wasting money. Maybe money is tight and they think you are wasting it. Not everyone understands that you have to speculate to accumulate.

So, how can you change their point of view?
1) The first and probably the most important is to include them in the business as much as possible. Let them know that it will improve their life too and if you can , bring them along to a company event. Show them people online who are already getting results. 
2) Get a result yourself. If you can get a sale pretty quick out of the gate you might start turning things around fairly quickly. Once a spouse or partner starts to hear the Cha Ching of money coming in, you’ll be surprised at how it can switch things around in someone’s head. 
3) Explain things. Let your partner or spouse know what exactly you do in that “other room” for two and a half hours each evening. 
4) Show them that you are determined to see it through no matter what. I have found that the only way to get a result in this life is to be “unstoppable”. You can’t let people impose their will on you, or you yourself can end up regretting not “following through”..
Regret is a terrible thing. It can haunt you forever. It’s better to try and fail than never try at all, but remember failure is only failure if you give up. Fail forward and get a result, it’s the only way. Winners are the people who make the most mistakes but come out winning anyway..
