Some people don’t want you to succeed. That’s right. It may sound harsh, but it’s the truth and it’s reality. Have you ever had a great idea or dream that you knew you could have followed through with, and your family or closest friends talked you out of it? Take a minute and think about that. Think about all the “Why would you want to do that? What’s the rush? It’s hard out there. You could never do that. But you don’t know anything about that.” I bet your answer is “Yes.” Have those same people come to you needing help with something they want to do? I bet, again, your answer is “Yes.” The way the world is today, it’s difficult to find people who genuinely care about you and want to see you thrive. John Donne said “No man is an island.” However, nowadays it’s hard to not go at it alone, as most people are unwilling to help or support your endeavours. Many people seem to think that helping someone shine will somehow dull their spotlight. Not only that, many are just plain evil. Try not to worry about the badminds, critics, evil-doers, hypocrites and naysayers though – time and karma will visit them with payback. What’s so hard in helping someone progress in life and business? If you think about it, giving a helping hand encourages good karma and blessings to come right back to you. Who wouldn’t want that? The people you help won’t forget it, and will show their appreciation by returning the favour.
Do you have a support system that cheers you on? How did you achieve that?
