I read a great little story the other day...
In brief, it was about a group of tiny frogs who decided to climb a skyscraper (Yeah, I know, daft premise, but bear with me!)
They set off, and a crowd gathers to watch. The crowd starts yelling "They'll never make it, they'll all fall and be killed, it's impossible etc etc."

Sure enough, one by one the frogs slip off and plummet to the ground.

All except one, who keeps going and gets to the top.

When he gets there, a reporter meets him on the roof and asks how he could succeed where all the others failed.

The frog puts a hand to his ear and says "What? Can't hear you, sonny."

Because he was deaf to the negativity, he didn't give up!!!!

Proves your point exactly I think!
