The line “The sky is falling!” sure sounds familiar especially to the Chicken Little fans out there. Well, it’s his fav phrase after all.

In the Chicken Little story, the character likes to run around the neighborhood shouting and alerting the neighbors that the sky is falling….but fact is, the sky is not falling.In our daily life, we are surrounded by at least one Chicken Little. Not the cute cartoon character….but the true, living Chicken Little. The person who likes to think negative and keep demotivating himself (and the people around him). The doomsayers.

They will come out with all sorts of things, just to demotivate you and made you feel bad about what you are doing or planning to do.

When you buy a property..they will say that the property is a waste of money and you should put your money in Fixed Deposit (and they don’t even know anything bout property investment). When you said you want to start a new business, they would say you are too young and immature (when inside their heart, they might feel regret for not starting their own business when they were still young) . Everything you say, they will try disagree and go on to explain why you are wrong and they are right. Fact is…most Chicken Littles do not know what they are talking about. They are being negative because they are afraid….or they’re jealous. Why? Because you are doing things that they do not dare to do.

Chicken Littles are everywhere. You can’t escape from them.

The only thing you can do is….follow your gut feelings. Do what you like, with proper research n studies of course. If you are not sure and need some advice…go seek the advice of professionals or experienced individuals. Need to know investment? Go ask the real investors…people who have been investing their money in stocks/bonds/funds, etc. Need to know about starting a business? Go ask the right people.

Never ever ask the wrong guy……and if you really did (accidentally maybe) ask the wrong guy…the Chicken Little guy, then please don’t get demotivated by the person. πŸ™‚
