Love and cherish the people who encourage and support you on your journey. Allow the haters and the skeptics to motivate you!
You will meet all sorts of people on this journey. There will be the people who uplift and inspire you every step of the way. You will find teachers and mentors who give you advice that will stick with you through the years. Some people will want to join you and provide companionship and accountability.
And then there will be those people who flat out make you doubt yourself. It may be with a look or a cutting comment. There may even be a few snide remarks that feel a little more salty. When I meet these folks it often affects me even more than the people who uplift me and sometimes I have to wonder why? The positive outnumbers the negative so why does this affect me so much?
If this happens to you:
- Take a deep breath, maybe 3.
- Then re-frame those comments in your mind because you can always see them in a positive light.
- Use it as motivation and keep going!
And other times I just want to sing this song to those folks!
How do you handle the haters and the people who make you doubt yourself? Please comment below to share!
