If you work at your dream job, good for you! If you don’t, good for you! You put thought into that choice, weighed the pros and cons, and made the decision. Maybe you don’t make a lot of money but love what you do. Maybe you’re bored out of your mind but get the bills paid. Whatever the reason, don’t let someone else dictate your career moves.

For your life goals

These could be goals for your career, your personal life, your bucket list, or all of the above. Those goals are what keep you going and you are determined to make them a reality. If someone has a problem with your ambitions, they probably have none. Let no one stand in your way. To quote Shia LeBeouf, “Don’t let your dreams be dreams.”

For being positive

No one should judge you for your attitude, especially if it’s a positive one. If someone’s complaining about a project, a coworker, or heck, even the lunch menu, don’t stoop to their level and return with a complaint you don’t mean. Be proud of your positive outlook on life, and you may even help them develop a positive attitude. That way, you keep on spreading the love!
