In life you won’t ever go far if all you do is pause to answer what people are saying about you. People will castigate, criticize, complain and condemn you for the cause you are chasing at. It will be tantamount to foolishness and weakness if your fighting spirit is quenched by their ferocious words. If you focus on the harsh words of men, be certain for sure you will remain at a stagnant level in life. I have told you that what people don’t understand they criticize.
If you are really passionate about your idea, dream or whatever project it is, you must chase after it without taking into cognizance the discouraging words of men. Writing and launching my books recently have taught me many life lessons. Don’t belittle yourself or your dream even if people do that to you. You are down when you chose to be. You are not down when you are physically down, you are down when you are down in your mind. You must keep your head straight if you must see the better, bigger and brighter side of life. Don’t spend your time on the many distractions of people around you.
Taking into thought words spoken to you by people and creating time to answer them is clearly an indication that you aren’t serious in your pursuit. Many people will tell you to the face that you go nowhere with your vision, but if you stay to fight till the end, the same people will come to you to say, I know you could do it, I’m proud of you. It happened to me and it will happen to any man fulfilling purpose and destiny. My wonderful friend told me that the best way to answer critics is multiple successes. Once you are facing these challenges, keep your head straight, fight to the end and become a finisher. Happy new week and God bless you.
