There’s two types of pollution in this world: environmental pollution and what Bro. Phil Valentine calls “thought pollution.”

There’s also two types of ghettos in this world too: socio-economic ghettos and what Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth call “Ghettos of the Mind.”

…now you and I both know that you don’t need to live next to a toxic waste dump or in the middle of South Bronx to experience those more psychological forms of contamination, deprivation and despair.

So since I’m not educating you on something you don’t already understand (that Negative People SUCK…Energy Out of YOU), let’s get straight into the “what to do about it” part. Here’s 3 tips to help you the negative thinkers that are literally WEIGHING YOU DOWN

Get Them Out Of Your Life

Negative people are like parasites, so limit your interaction with them as much as humanly possible. I talked about this in my video series on getting focused:

Educate Yourself Properly

“The question isn’t ‘Who’s going to let me?’, it’s ‘Who’s going to stop me???’” ~ Ayn Rand (author of Atlas Shrugged)

“What he had once hoped for the Flock, he now gained for himself alone; he learned to fly, and was not sorry for the price that he had paid…” ~ Richard Bach (author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull)

Man’s proper state is an upright posture, an intransigent (resolute) mind
and a step that travels unlimited roads.” ~ Ayn Rand

“Jonathan sighed. The price of being misunderstood, he thought.
They call you devil or they call you god….” ~ Richard Bach

“The man who thinks must think and act on his own. A reasoning mind
cannot work under any form of compulsion…it cannot be subordinated to the needs,
opinions or wishes of others. It is not an object of sacrifice.”
~ Ayn Rand

Jonathan Livingston Seagull is a short novella, Atlas Shrugged a deep novel; both share similar ideas. I suggest the first for a light read and the second for in-depth understanding.

Define Your Own Parameters

People like you and I deserve to live a different, more fulfilling kind of life, but we deny ourselves that honor by allowing smaller minds to set the parameters on our existence.

…and by assuming that by playing small, we’re being considerate to their weakness.

For most of my life, the logic I’ve lived by is tantamount to thinking I can help a diseased man get well by pretending to be diseased myself, and I’m willing to wager that you’ve been playing that same card…

So it’s time to stop playing around: it’s time to show this world the power of our minds WITHOUT APOLOGY, damn the consequences.”

Remember, since most people are content with mediocrity, there’s a subtle, mental form of that “thought pollution” being transferred onto you that you may not even realize.

Do EVERYTHING YOU CAN to put an end to this now, and refuse to ever settle for less then the best you can possibly be…
