Companies around the globe have this place called the “board room”, where they discuss their most profitable and confidential information. Within this room, many conversations can go from real intense to real relaxed. Sometimes these companies have discussions about what everyone in the room thinks about a certain product, a certain project, or the direction the company is heading in.
As they’re having these discussions, there can be an individuals within the group who always come with a negative attitude. These people are the ones who feel they need to disagree with everything, and/or offer an opinion that is negative. If the company is looking to create a new logo, these people immediately think it’s a bad idea. They may say things like “we will lose business if we change the logo” or “sometimes change can be bad and we don’t want to ruin what we’ve been building.”
If the company is looking to expand, these individuals may see this as a bad idea, which can have an influence on the future of the company. These individuals are the ones who can prevent the company from going to the next level. The same thing can apply to the people you have within your life. Certain people could be preventing you, from transitioning to where you need to be. Always remember to “keep your boardroom positive”
You have friends and family, who you consider to be a part of your circle. This circle can be viewed as your board room of people, who you have countless discussions with. Let’s say that you go to these people and you explain that you want to change your wardrobe to look more professional. One of your “friends” tells you that you should stick to what you’ve been wearing, because some clothes may not look good on you. A family member may crack a joke about your weight and tell you that there may not be any “professional” clothes that fit you. These people don’t sound very positive and you may need to remove them from your board room.
You go to these group of people again and you tell them that you want to start a bakery business because you’ve been given good reviews on your baked goods. One of your “friends” may say something like “your cupcakes and cookies are good but I don’t think they’re going to do well if you sell them.” Another friend may say “yea I agree they are amazing, but I don’t know if they can compete with what’s being sold today.”
At that moment you should realize that, these individuals are the ones who have been preventing you from really progressing. The constant negativity and assumptions, have been influencing your thoughts, your behaviors, and the energy within your board room. Remove that negative energy from your life and be influenced by the positive energy that is within your board room. Listen to those friends who encourage you to do well or who tell you they will help you build your bakery business. Listen to those family members who are willing to go out of their way, to help you find clothes that are more professional and suitable to your style. Think of all those moments where your board room has influenced your decisions.
Think of all the things you could have done, but you’re board room made you feel incapable of being capable. Now take a moment to think about those friends and family members, who have remained positive from the beginning. That great feeling you get from their encouragement and assistance, is what you need and deserve. You deserve a board room that is positive, inspiring, and motivating. Make a change today and remove the negativity within your board room. Your future self will thank you for
