This may come as a shock to some but there are people who do not want to see you succeed. I would even go so far as to say that there are some who even pray for your failure. In some cases, these same people are disguised as friends and/or supporters; all the while they are secretly hoping that you miss your mark. I am here to tell you that their opinions don’t matter.
People are going to establish their own opinions about you, most of which are going to be negative and against you; expect it. Others may even be bold enough to publicly cheer against you. As a winner, you must learn to develop blinders that keep you focused on the task at hand and not on the ill-wishers. It is unrealistic to expect that everyone will be on your side; work as if it’s just you and God.
Although others opinions about us failing should not matter, we should use those words as motivation. You can turn any bit of information into the fuel necessary to drive you to accomplish your goals. What motivates me most is when someone believes that I can’t do something. I’ve eliminated the ‘apostrophe t’ from my vocabulary and so should you; specifically the word can’t. There will be people who will think that you cannot win and there will be people who will hope to see you lose; your only mission is to prove them wrong.
When you prove people wrong, you are proving who was right all along. The only person in control of your destiny is YOU!
