This week’s Mic Drop Monday is all about why you shouldn’t care about other peoples opinions and why they don’t matter. You need to stop caring about what other people think!
It’s Not About You
For some people sharing their negativity is satisfying a need within them. They don’t like to see others achieving things that they can’t so they have to sprinkle their negativity all over it.
I had someone tell me about an opportunity they didn’t have many years ago. They had accepted that they couldn’t achieve something, which actually if they’d applied themselves they probably could have. So when that same opportunity presented itself to me and I told them about it, they couldn’t wait to rain on my parade and tell me all about the opportunities they never had. They had to turn my positive opportunity into a negative that was all about them. What I wanted didn’t matter to them so long as they could make it all about them.
When someone behaves like this it’s a very selfish action. If that person genuinely wanted you to achieve your goals and live your best life then they would be positive towards whatever it is you are doing. It wouldn’t be about them.
Examine The Source
If the negativity you are receiving is coming from credible sources and it’s because you’ve done something wrong, then address, fix it and then move on from it. Don’t dwell on it.
It’s Up To You
Don’t let the haters hinder you. Instead, use their comments to fuel you on to great things. Use it to help you achieve your goals and achieve the things they never will and lead the best life possible.
