I got some hater comments on yesterday's blog post. I expected them to come sooner or later. There has never been a successful person who hasn't had their share of them.
I had to laugh at it.
I have too much to do in life to worry about what other people choose to think about me. It's a shame that living up to my potential can bring out the childishness in others.
I'm only writing about it because I always encourage others to live up to their potential too. Especially black people. When we do it, we have to be prepared for adversity and naysayers. We have to have every confidence in ourselves and our abilities. At the end of some days that may be all we have to strengthen us to fight on the next day.
It's sad but true.
I've been saying for a long time that the main difference between successful people and dreamers is that successful people build their success while dreamers only dream. Some people are afraid to even dream. Others dream and don't have the courage to pursue them. Others don't know how to pursue their dreams. Some don't bother to plan carefully and pursuing their dreams only leads to running around in circles and sabotaging themselves.
I want my readers to ask yourselves: "Are my dreams achievable?" If you believe they are after rationally looking at them and what it will take to accomplish them, then ask yourself: "What steps will I take to accomplish them?" Then take those steps.
We can be whoever we want to be and accomplish whatever we choose if we really know ourselves and understand what God truly expects from us. It's really quite simple.
Spend your time attending to your business and not everyone else's. If others choose to assert themselves in your business then utilize those who can help you and ignore the rest.
Mental energy should not be wasted. It is the most valuable asset we have. If we use our assets wisely, they can produce great success.
