Pep Talk For Myself... and You!

You're not going to get anywhere by focusing on what other people are doing or what other people think about you.

I got the ability this last week to see what some people in my sphere of influence really think about me behind my back. There's this overarching theme that runs through most of what was being said and that is the people who sit on the sidelines are going to continuously cast stones your direction because they don't understand how or why you're playing the game. Most of those critics aren’t even in your league.

Self-worth doesn't come from the outside, so what others think of you is irrelevant. As you’re building your life it's imperative to find an environment that's healthy (for you) and productive (for you) and that you surround yourself with people who share the same values that you do. Get clear on your goals and your vision for your future because if you aren't clear on where you're headed you’re going to lose time.

The people who are critical of you are not going to show you how to get to your successful future, so stop wasting time worrying about them. And anyone who’s maliciously critical of you has something broken in them, they need to fix. You don’t have time or energy to waste on them.

So pull yourself out and away from the belief that their opinion matters because at the end of the day they are not living your life, you are. They haven't had the same experiences that you have. You know where you came from. You know how much you've struggled to get to where you are today. You know how much you had to level up and how stronger that made you. And that strength is going to see you through to the next level, and the next. You got this!
