You have to separate yourself from people who criticize you. They are the reason why you’re not where you want to be in life. Every time you hear someone say something that puts you down its demeaning, it’s wrong and it’s just rude. Why would you stay in the presence of someone who belittles you? Someone who dims your light? Someone who doesn’t believe in you? Someone who discredits and questions you? Stay clear of these people. They will kill your vibe.
Why can’t we just be only the presence of people who believe in us? You know the people who see something in us, encourage us, value us, and never doubt us? The individuals who are excited for you to launch your new ideas and chase after your aspirations in life? Do they tear you down because your aspirations aren’t achievable to them?
It doesn’t matter. The bottom line is – they don’t how talented you are, they don’t know the knowledge you have and they don’t know what you’re capable of and they certainly haven’t seen your hustle. They don’t know how many hours of you life you pour into your dreams. That being said, their opinion or commentary is not valid because they don’t see all the variables that you see.
We all know that these people mean well for you, and want the best from you, they are coming from a place of love but it doesn’t mean you should take that shit!
Do you really want to be in the company of someone who doubts you or listen to them talk negative about you to you? That sounds stupid to me. I rather just chill out and read a book. Maybe enrich my mind more with some more knowledge. Hang with someone who is excited about life just as much as I am. You should stop feeling guilty.
You are just around people who do not think as big as you. After a while of being around it you begin to doubt your self and your vision. Admit it. You think big and they think average. I am not saying you need to cut them out of your life because some of them may be your parents, God bless them for trying their best with what they believe is right, and some of them could be your siblings, friends, co workers etc. The solution to this is just to watch where your energy goes. All you have to do is continue your journey with a successful entrepreneurial mindset. That means limiting your time with those who kill your vibe. Limit your time with them. Be. Stingy. As. Fuck. Like penny-pinching stingy.
If you do this and take it seriously something wonderful will happen in your life. You will see that most of the time you are enjoying it, your happier, you positive and more confident.
Instead now, spend most of your time with those who will feed your mind. Those who will pull you forward in life, mentors who can enrich your life by helping you to get faster to you goal, and most importantly spend most of your time being consistent and applying relentless application of the plan.
So next time someone is saying something that doesn’t resonate with you why go through the trouble? It’s an inconvenient and unnecessary obstacle. You don’t have to overcome it. You don’t have to put any energy into trying to change them. If fact you can just skip it all together and save yourself a headache. Just be wise with whom you spend your time with and that will be the deciding factor in how far you get in life. You pick up the habits and characteristics of people you hang around the most. My advice is choose the people who are the most positive, healthiest and enthusiastic about life and most importantly those that support you. Place yourself in a position where people can uplift you. People, who energize you, not drain you. Hang with the go- getters not the people who think average.
Now go ahead – close your eyes, take a leap of faith and listen to this song. Trust that positioning yourself around better people will dramatically improve your life!
