One of my favorite Twitter accounts Wall Street Playboys recently shot out another gem:
If you’re looking for new contacts?
Avoiding the unhappy is probably the very first rule
No such thing as unhappy & “successful”
This is some of the best advice you’ll ever get.
It’s one of the 48 Laws of Power, too.
And, it’s something I’ve been actively doing for years. Nothing personal against miserable people. But other peoples’ misery is as contagious as the bewb-onic plague, and just as deadly to your peace of mind and success. This is especially true when their misery is self-inflicted, they do nothing to change their circumstances, and even stubbornly cling to it for the attention/drama/flakebook likes it creates.
Social media makes it as easy as falling off a couch to spot ‘em.
See someone constantly droning about how sucky their lives are (personal life, business life, love life, family life, dating life, work life, friendship life, online life, offline life, and the list goes on…) and all their so-called “problems”?
Cut ‘em out completely.
I routinely do this, coldly and without explanation. Including to people I’ve done business with and who have been paying customers, people I’ve considered friends, and even certain family members who get out of line.
And you know what?
I’ve never once regretted it.
(If anything, I tend to wait too long to do it.)
Just reading their bull shyt will screw with your head.
All right enough.
If you’re full of misery, there’s not much I can do to help. That is, unless your misery is caused by a lack of sales. If that’s the case, my “Email Players” newsletter can wipe that slack, bovine-look off your face in no time.
