Just a Few Reminders

  1. What folks think about you is none of your business – Their thoughts will not help push you or generate income for you. What people think about you and your journey period does not put food on your table or pay for your utilities. What people think is so inconsequential when it comes to the grand scheme of things in your life. Everybody has thoughts and opinions, but neither should intrude upon your progress. Their thoughts should not delay you from doing what it is you were called to do. Their thoughts should not stop you from being brave and taking the next step. Their thoughts should not stop you from being who you were destined to be. So when people think about you is none of your business. We’ve all gotten tripped up with our thoughts of “What will people think?”. I know I have but honestly, there’s a handful of people that I’m truly concerned about and I even ignore some of their opinions because I’ve learned they can often be self-serving.
  2. It’s not your responsibility to explain – It’s not your responsibility to explain your hustle, your grind, your dream, your purpose. It is not your responsibility to explain any of that. It is not your responsibility to explain why are you getting up at 4:00 in the morning and you don’t go to bed until after midnight. It is not your responsibility to explain why you work a nine-to-five and then you leave your nine-to-five and you go to a library to do online classes. It’s not your responsibility to explain why you walked away from a lucrative six-figure job to pursue your dream. It is not your responsibility to explain why you had to walk away from a situation that you knew was toxic 10 years ago, but you stayed.
  3. Stop being scared – Refer back to numbers 1 and 2. Stop being afraid of taking that chance. Stop being afraid of doing what you know you’re supposed to be doing. Stop being afraid of what people want to think. Stop being afraid to pursue what you’ve been dreaming about. You got this dream. There are people out there right now (maybe even you) with a dream and hope of doing something. They are so excited about it. They can’t wait to do it, but they let fear keep them from doing it. I promise you, this is all a little bit of tough love. I fuss because I care. I do it because I believe in your potential. Start the blog. Expand your business. Write the damn book already. If you share your dreams with me, I’m going to remind you. I’m going to ask questions. Don’t tell me that you want to do something or have a desire to do something and then sit on it. Then don’t tell me. Do not tell me there’s something you have in your heart you want to do. Don’t tell me about a dream you have if you don’t want a reminder that you need to go ahead and do it. I am that person to sees the possibility and just about anything and everybody. I told you, I’m annoyingly optimistic.
