There are no successful cynics!

by Chris Farrell

There are no successful cynics!

Think about it.

Real success - anyway we measure it - be it happiness, family, fame, money - cannot be achieved in the face of cynicism.

Why is this?

That's simple.

Cynics love to play the blame game. Blame someone else - something else - for their current situation. These are dead end answers and dead end excuses.

Have you noticed - that if successful people have one trait - it's an utter lack of cynicism. The world owes them nothing.

They go out and find what they need without asking permission; they're driven, focused, and work through the negatives by focusing on the positives.

Cynics on the other hand - are like quicksand.

Cynics like to find other cynics and sit together - saying 'it feels good to stay angry'. They complain - often with intensity - that every slight against them becomes a gigantic conspiracy.

Here's an exercise; name a successful cynic. Bet you can't....

That's because cynics do not become successful.

To become an elite performer - in whatever avenue of life you want - be it in your relationship - business - with money - with friends -- you can not be a cynic.

Of course it's easier to blame something else - but doing so is like using a rocking chair. It gives you something to do - but it won't get you anywhere.

So no more wasting time moaning and worrying about things that you can't control.

And start spending time on things you can.
