#42 - What Is the Modern Day Quest for Discovery? (featuring Derek Loudermilk) (No Easy Answers)
Some people in our lives will either never understand us or always try to diminish what we do. Often, these negative people are people that we can't completely remove from our lives. Maybe they're family members or coworkers that we have to see every day. What can we do to deal with them and not let their negativity bring us down or distract us from our dreams? Take a page from Facebook and "unfollow" them. Just because they're there posting their negative talk on their real-world Facebook wall and tagging you doesn't mean you have to follow them or go to the extreme of "unfriending" them in real life. Check out this episode to hear what I have to say about how to unfollow someone in real life to stay focused on your goals and what's important to you. And as always, find more info and news at barrymangione.com
