PSA: Pardon the language (You were warned) But I don’t think anyone should put up with bullshit. Negative, backstabbing, down talking, sabotaging, happiness stealing, joy murdering, lying – you get the picture – Bullshit. You are an AWESOME person who came into this world perfectly flawed but incredible and capable of doing amazing things. You were burdened in life by other people’s self limited doubts, fears & skepticism (BS) and downsized yourself to their level because as kids we are monkey see, monkey do.
As an adult you have 2 choices: Follow that same BS path to assmonkery lamedom or shake off those doubts & carve your own path. I chose #2. As soon as you consciously make the decision to leave the BS behind amazing things happen –
1st, you open up to new possibilities even if they are TERRIFYING you know that this is better than being shackled to a life & job that makes you unhappy.
2nd, people who know you (or your former assmonkey self) will divide – one side will cheer for you & support you while the others make snarky, snide and defeating comments. That is because they are too scared to leave the comfort of their assmonkey shadows and will justify it by clawing at you to hold you back – because they can’t be wrong! But this is OK, you will see in time that they hold you down from your greatness out of fear of their own greatness!
3rd, when you open yourself up to the bright shiny possibility that there is a dream career that leads you to your dream life – the right people are drawn to you like a magnet! Slowly at first but it gains momentum. Before you know it you have a WHOLE TRIBE of these awesome & motivating people around you that have the same goals – and you don’t have to prove yourself to them because they already know – you are a FRICKEN ROCKSTAR! It continues to be uncomfortable but that’s ok because growth is change & change is so powerful that you should expect those growing pains. If it leads you down the path you want to be on within time it won’t be uncomfortable – it will be like when you were a kid waking up on Christmas morning (or whatever exciting morning that drove you into your slippers at 4 am to race out of bed).
My point is: BS is as BS does. People full of BS will never change their ways unless they WANT TO! You can’t FIX EM CHANGE EM OR HELP THEM if they don’t see the problem. Also, if people are going to believe bad things about you – it’s their problem. You don’t have to dumb yourself down to their level to prove that you are one of them because I have news for you- YOU AREN’T! And that is ok. If they are ok with believing rumors they are full of rumors and you don’t have time for that! Reinvest your time into loyal, honest, uplifting people like yourself. Don’t expend energy on the ones who don’t matter, just shine brighter than ever before – because they will fade away & you will be better for it. You were born a star – we all were. So shine bright & blind the haters out of your sight! That’s what my tribe is all about – LOVE, JOY, SUPPORT, HONESTY, BUILDING EACH OTHER UP & HELPING OTHERS. Because that is what gives our lives meaning, purpose and happiness! #byebyebs #hellogreatness #yesyoucan #success #happiness #joy
