8 Reasons Why Coffee Drinkers Are More Likely To Succeed

8 Reasons Why Coffee Drinkers Are More Likely To Succeed

Most times what you need to get plugged into a project is that shot of caffeine. Coffee does it for me, from the smell to the flow into the cup and that intense swallow. It gets me on the drive. While others are worried about the intensity, for me it’s perfect. I get energy only coffee can provide. I can’t help but remind the worriers of the wonders coffee does to their chances for success. Read this article if you’re hesitant about coffee, and consider all the benefits you stand to gain.

Here is a list of beneficial effects that help coffee drinkers succeed.

1. They are healthier

Whether it is Alzheimer, diabetes, or cardiovascular diseases, coffee has a power against different diseases. People who drink coffee live longer and have lower health risks of developing diseases like Parkinson’s.

2. They are smarter

It is not just about keeping you awake. There are other reasons that you should drink coffee. It also makes you smarter. The caffeine present in the coffee you drink blocks the adenosine in the brain. Adenosine is an inhibitory transmitter. When this adenosine is blocked you have a higher energy level and you can work at a higher level.

3. They are more physical

All that fat in your body can be burned by coffee. If you’re doubtful, keep in mind that caffeine is in most commercial fat burning supplements. Caffeine works against fat because it raises metabolism, thus increasing the oxidation of fatty acids. It also mobilizes fatty acids from fat tissues. Caffeine can be helpful in increasing your physical performance.

4. They are happier

People who take caffeine have fewer bouts of depression. By drinking several cups of coffee, you keep your spirits high and protect you from depression or gloom. The anti-oxidants in coffee may be responsible for keeping your mood up and making you more exciting and positive.

5. They live longer

Whether you like it or not, this is confirmed by science. What do you have to say against a substance that lowers the risk of heart diseases, makes you more charged, and positive? Coffee has a lot of other compounds beyond caffeine. Some of the benefits of these compounds have not even been confirmed by science yet. Still, most of these compounds are anti-oxidants that protect your bodies from oxidation. These oxidants are powerful enough to damage molecules in the body.

6. They are go-getters

There is an attitude that comes with taking coffee. You want to get the job done. Coffee powers you to start your day early and achieve something. Successful people take coffee and fire up while others are still rolling in bed and still trying to adapt to being awake. Coffee keeps you aware of your environment and gets you started early on time.

7. They are alive and more interesting to be with

Coffee drinkers are great team players and fun to be with. At the end of the day, it is not about getting the job done. It is also making it fun and having the acceptance of a fun team who considers you likable. With coffee, you are fired up and alive to make your project more energetic and more interesting.

8. They make money

This is according to a study that is based on certain workers in the United Kingdom. When you think of it, it makes a lot of sense. Why wouldn’t coffee drinkers make money when they are more resilient, wake up earlier, and are more active during the day? Coffee drinkers are more fired up for success. They live the experience from every cup of coffee as they want to get the job done.

I’m drinking a cup of coffee now as I write this because I am a firm believer in certain things I write. So, here is my cup of coffee raised to every coffee drinker out there. There are more important reasons to drink coffee, rather than not drink it. And if it is for success, then it is worth it!

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
