Haters Be Hating

We’ve all been there. We’re super excited about our new plan. So much so that we share it with a friend. But right after we give them the big news … nothing. No smile, no excitement, no support, nothing.

I know I’ve been through it. It’s definitely bummed me out and sent me into a downward spiral of self-doubt. Don’t let this happen to you! Just remember that your friend doesn’t wish bad things for you. What I’ve discovered is that they just might not have the same vision as you do. That’s not a bad thing. If you’re a person with vision, you’re rare. Trust me, I know.

A lot of the people you talk to won’t understand. Most folks are just thinking about their next move. Not 10 moves ahead. Many of them don’t have visions to pursue. So, don’t be discouraged when your friends and even family don’t get the plan you have mapped out for yourself. Don’t see them as haters. Most of the time they don’t mean you any harm. Just learn by trial and error which friends you can dream with. It’s your vision. Protect it.

And, believe me, when your dream starts to manifest, those same people who doubted you will jump on board.
