I work in an environment filled with poison. The very air in certain areas is filled with harmful particles and most surfaces require a washing of the hands after they are touched.
I have learned to keep the contaminants of my environment out of my body. It takes consistent effort and attention to detail, but it is not impossible.
The mind is the same way.
Do you allow things that are detrimental to your productivity and improvement inside your mind?
Do they fester inside, eating at your will to succeed and improve?
Be the gatekeeper of your mind, safeguard your thoughts and digest only the things that are conducive to growth and excellence.
Negativity can be all over you, but that doesn't mean it any of it has to be inside.
Time to lock the GATE.
