A Cynic Defined

Reading about incredible and improbable success is always inspiring but in this article, what hit closest home for me were these lines
The thing about cynical people is that they don’t want to be inspired. Their biggest fear is not that they will never have the same luck as someone who seems to get everything they want. Their biggest fear is that they will hear the true story. They’re terrified to find out that every success story comes with getting your hands dirty and actually doing things to change your lot in life.
As soon as I read that, I found myself making a mental list of people I know that fit the profile. And Hayden is exactly on point in his observation. The only thing I would add is that when you are not feeling your best, cynical people can drag you down. Like them, you do not want to be inspired or work to achieve success.
