Infection: avoid the unhappy and unlucky

You can die from someone else’s misery- emotional states are as infectious as disease. You may feel you are helping the drowning man but you are only precipitating your own disaster. The unfortunate sometimes draw misfortune on themselves: they will draw it on you. Associate with the happy and fortunate. 

You can read it a million times but you won’t think about it at the time. Our hearts feel for people and we think if they just did this or that, then maybe it will turn around for them. But nope!!! Some people are where they are at because they put themselves there from limited or over thinking. They end up missing the one thing that could truly save them from self inflicted doom and gloom!  The crabs in the bucket thing. Bad apples ruins the bunch. 

You can never be the biggest cheer leader for someone else’s brand! If they, themself aren’t the biggest ambassador for their own vision. Put your track shoes on!  GET OUT!!!!! 

I’ve learned this lesson the hard way. Many times. Trust my experience and use my wisdom.

Have you seen how doctors use great precautions to deal with patients that have infections ? The amount washing and the scrubbing of arms and hands, only to put on layers of protection just to deal with a person. There is a reason… Think about that before doing surgery on just anyone. (metaphorically speaking)
