People sometimes act like that to make up for the fact that they have very low self esteem (possibly as a result of growing up in an environment where they were treated the same way?), so rather than working on improving themselves, they try and drag other people down to be at their level.
It can be difficult, but just learn to ignore those people... Smile, nod, say "Oh, okay, sure, you're right" to get them to shut up, avoid them as much as possible, and keep your eyes focused on your goal.
Having such a negative attitude is a guaranteed path to failure.
Staying focused on your goals and dreams, no matter how big and lofty they are or how impossible they seem right now, and putting in the time and effort required to learn the skills you need, build the connections you need, and ultimately create the reality you envision... THAT'S the way to success!
The bigger your goals and the more you want to improve your experience, the more people will try and drag you down. So get used to it and learn to deal with it without it affecting you.
It can be difficult at first (especially if those people are family or people you can't completely avoid), but try and distance yourself from negative people and work on surrounding yourself with people who support you and your dreams and will cheer you on as you climb up the ladder of success.
Don't take the negative stuff personally, it's only a reflection of the person who's trying to kill your dreams and your spirit. Feel bad for them, but stay as far away as possible.
Good luck, you have what it takes to achieve your dreams! Never give up!
