Don’t Let the Opinion of Others Steal Your Dream
Don’t you just hate it when you share your vision with someone only to have them go all negative on you?
How are you going to let it affect you?
In this article, we’ll talk about the effects and how to combat them…
Don’t Let People Rain on Your Parade
There is nothing more debilitating than this. You are all psyched out about your new idea and then all of a sudden the air has been let out of your balloon.
I’ll be honest, this can be devastating and if it comes from the right person, it will stop you dead in your tracks.
Often I find that people on social platforms like Facebook are ready, willing and able to say things that can hurt you deeply. At times they can be downright mean.
If you let what other people say affect you, then you will end up stopping before you get started…
And that just ain’t cool at all!
How Do We Deal with This?
For some that may seem like the $50,000.00 question.
It’s one of those questions that people search for all the time.
So, I’m gonna offer some suggestions that might work for you. There is no telling because everyone is different.
Let me begin by telling you, I am a Christian… I’ll let that sink in a bit.
OK, I don’t get my worth or my joy from the acceptance of others. This comes from my relationship with God.
I am not going to preach to you, I just want you to know who I am.
I will tell you this, if you are going to be an online marketer, you will need to have thick skin.
There is no doubt you are going to get attacked by well-intentioned folks along with the just plain mean-spirited bozos out there.
Are you still with me… GOOD!
Look, some will tell you to avoid these things from happening by not sharing your ideas or thoughts with anyone.
That’s not going to work. Like I said you have to have thick skin. To develop your barrier, you will need to find another way.
The best way to deal with the naysayers and the people that want to poo-poo on your parade is to embrace the negativity.
That’s right… Embrace it.
Let it sink in and then turn it into the fuel that lights the fire inside that will drive you to prove them wrong.
Know that you are better than that. Understand that most people will advise you from the negative believing that they are saving you from embarrassment or failure.
Do think that the greats in history like, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Edison, Einstein, and so many others let the naysayers in their lives prevent them from pursuing their visions, their dreams?
The answer is a big fat NO…
If they had, then we would not even know their names. That’s not to say that you or I will be the next Bill Gates.
What it does say is that if we are committed to our vision, our dreams, we can be the more than we can imagine.
With that said, ask yourself this…
Are you truly determined to make your dream become a reality? Are you willing to put in the hard work, the time, the effort necessary to keep going when it seems like the odds are against you?
Will you allow others to affect your future or will you turn your back on them and push forward as your life depended on it?
These are the questions all of us have to ask ourselves.
I’ll close with this. There are no easy answers, there is only determination, hard work, and perseverance.
Let me know what you think. Tell me if you agree or if you think I’m full of it. I can take it either way.
