The FAB Corner: Dream Killers
5. Encourage you to take the more common traveled path, rather than supporting your non-traditional ideas and goals.
6. Serve as pessimistic thinkers, always stating why goals are too hard or challenging to accomplish.
7. Pretend to be happy for your success, all the while taking action and making comments to make you feel inadequate, fearful or apprehensive.
8. Leave you feeling tense, anxious and stressed every time you have a conversation about your dreams or plan of action.
Having negative energy in our path can deter us from reaching our full potential. We have to make it our personal mission to identify and rid ourselves of negative influences in our lives that are not motivating and challenging us to become confident individuals, accomplished professionals, civic leaders and dream chasers!
If you identify DREAM KILLERS in your path, take action fast. Don’t be the victim, be the achiever!
