Most of us have wasted years worrying about other people’s opinions of us. Whether they are real or imaginary — other people’s opinions have the potential to become our reality if we are not cautious.
Everyone experiences people that would dislike them at some point in their life. Whether it’s friends, family, or coworkers, it happens to the best of us. Most of the people can’t logically give a reason why they don’t like you — and if they can’t — why should you spend quality time trying to solve their mystery.
Never dim your lights just to make someone feel secure in their dysfunction.
“You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be someone that hates peaches.” – Dita Von Teese
If you are traveling along the road to success — it requires that you put on your ‘high beam’ (fighter mentality) because it can get pitch black (criticism) out there. Your destination requires that you pursue your course with confidence. Expect that many people will become intimidated by the fast movements of your life.
Never be tricked into believing that if you slow down a bit it will make your “haters” stop having an opinion of you. Some people will hate you for no reason and we need to learn to be okay with that. People will criticize and judge you if you are doing well or if you are failing — so focus on your destination and arrive safely and on time.
Every person we cross path with — was put into our life for a reason. Some are here to bless us while some are here to test us. It’s time to pull the plug on people’s opinions. Pausing to listen to what others have said or done behind your back — gives way to a lot of negative energy that will cause you to dim your lights and get off track.
When those who are blinded by your lights see that others are cheering you on and your wins outweigh their negativity — their committee will stop meeting, and there’s a great chance that you will inspire those who oppose you to find their god-given destiny.
“Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. Laugh with your happy friends when they’re happy; share tears when they’re down. Get along with each other; don’t be stuck-up. Make friends with nobodies; don’t be the great somebody.” Romans 12:14-16 MSG
