4 Ways To Overcome Naysayers & Doubters

No matter what your goals or ambitions whether for business, family or self-improvement. Majority of the time it always seems to be someone who has negative opinions on whatever you’re trying to do. This may be people who are close to you i.e. family or significant others.  Often times we don’t realize how naysayers can affect us in our daily lives. So today we will share 4  methods to overcome naysayers.

  1. Believe in Yourself:

Having a strong belief in yourself can help us cut out the empty noise that comes from naysayers. Once we believe in ourselves we won’t let their opinion sway our self-belief.


  1. Safeguard Your Dreams/Goals:

Often times when we have a dream or goal we love tell everybody, because we are excited. This is not always the best option will try to overcome naysayers. A lot of times the best choice is to keep our dreams and goals to ourselves.


  1. Ignore Them:

This is a very simple concept just don’t listen when people are negative or try to persuade you not to follow your dreams.


  1. Focus On Your Vision:

Instead of letting other people opinions create negative thoughts in your mind.  Stay focus on your vision or  goal  by starting to accept that we all fail sometimes. Success is inevitable if you keep learning, growing, and believing in yourself.

Final Thoughts

    A lovely read indeed. I’m always so tempted to tell all my friends & family my goals and dreams and I have to admit I don’t always get the positive outcome I would have expected from them. I guess your second point is something I need to work on. Thank you😃 http://www.chocolateandconfident.wordpress.com


  3. How do I handle it? I have a very long list of people I haven’t handled yet…that’s a joke. I typically use humor as a defense mechanism when someone says nay to me.

    Thank you for sharing this. It is very helpful for me, now that I am experiencing doubts from people I am working with. Every time I have an idea and work on it, something always happen. Some people just jump right in, so they can be part of the picture, to think I did all the hard work from scratch. What I did was just to give space to myself so I can process by brain how to respond to it. I kept quiet for now. I want to respond in a more professional way.

    Great insight Jay! We need to remember that negative talk is not from God. There may be naysayers in our life, but we can’t let them take control of our thoughts.

    Great post but here’s my issue….I have just started my own small business and so far I’ve had a lot of support. My father-in-law actually made the first investment in my business. Everyone keeps giving me high praise, so much so that I’ve been overthinking it. I feel like they are just being nice and not wanting to hurt my feelings. I’m trying my best to take it for what it is. How do you move forward when you are the naysayer?

    I definitely had to do with naysayers, and I find the best thing to do is to set about proving them wrong.

    Great post! Especially watch out for someone who you think is a friend, but they always they you know everything they do is correct, what you do is not so correct.😣 Love the ones where you don’t even has to say a word,😶 the whole conversation is about them. 😕One thing I like is YOU know all their business but they know NONE of mind. ☺Have a great day! 🤗🤗


  13. Number 2 is very important for me. I always tend to tell everybody every single thing I want to do whenever I get the idea to do something. I need to remember to not tell everybody what I’m doing or planning to do. Overcoming naysayers and doubters are very important to me because I’ve had lots of them in my life.
