Lessons in Success

Here’s the thing:

Everyone is not cheering you on.

Everyone is not in your corner.

Everyone will not rejoice in your success.

And that’s okay.

That doesn’t necessarily make them “haters”.  The haters are the ones who purposefully do things to tear you down once you start being successful or believe the only way they can be successful is to tear you down.

Either way – let ‘em hate.

Some people cannot be happy for you because your success makes them feel bad about themselves.

Don’t let that stop you from doing what you need to do.  You were not put here to make other people feel good about themselves.  That is their job and quite frankly, none of your business.

It’s not all doom-and-gloom.  There are people who will genuinely rejoice with you and view your success as something positive.  They will look at you and say, “if they can do it, so can I!” and they will go on to do great things themselves.  Then you have an opportunity to rejoice with them.
