The cynic in the corner has a wise crack about everything.
He puts down and undermines those who are trying.
He is happy to point out all of the reasons why things won’t work.
He shrugs his shoulders when asked for a solution.
He doesn’t really try and doesn’t really want to.
He smirks and pretends that he doesn’t care.
He gives off the external impression that he is superior to everyone else.
But no-one, absolutely no-one, who ever made a positive difference in the world was a cynic in the corner.
So ignore them.
Don’t be them.
And just do your thing with enthusiasm and diligence.
