Why negative people suck!
You adapt to your environment. Your presence and appearance decide how people react. In sales there are nice studies that the opposite adjust himself how you behave. So, watch your body language and your mood, because people react with similar reactions. If you are happy, they react happy. For example, if you want to stop a verbal fight you should lower your voice, instead of raising your voice.
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. — Jim Rohn
But more important is, that you should keep a happy environment around you. Hang out and maximize time with epic people. The group dynamics are much more fun and inspiring. Thus, stay away from sad or insecure people. They suck too much energy out of you. On the other side, don’t try to be such a grumpy and negative-minded person.
Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution!
Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.
