You just came up with a new business idea and you are super excited to launch it everywhere and start telling everyone! You start doing videos, messaging your friends, and telling your family. You have never been more excited in your entire life to start something!
Nobody is responding the way that you thought they would.
You realize that people are not liking your message, old friends are criticizing you and no one quite is supporting you like you thought they were.
Wait a second.. what happened?!
I thought everyone would support me because I am going after what I believe in. Am I saying the right message? Does my logo even look right?Sorry to say but there is nothing you can do about it. Most people will not believe in your vision INCLUDING your friends and family. Personally, I did and STILL go through this.
See you have to understand that people are not accustomed to see things outside of the norm. Whatever you are pursuing, starting a new business, doing daily videos on social media, moving to a new state or even changing career paths will shake people up because they will not know how to react to anomaly. In addition, also understand that people sometimes do not resonate with your message and that will happen sometimes! You do not need everyone to like your message, all you need to do is be consistent and find the people that do need your message.
For example, when I first started doing motivational videos on Facebook, posting images of inspiration on Instagram, and doing Periscopes a lot of people did not understand what I was doing. Most of my family members and friends to this day still think what I am doing holds no merit and will not get me far. However, I disagree with this because I know in my heart that speaking is my gift to the world. If you find that gift DO NOT disregard it and act like it is no big deal. We are all given our talents to make the world a better place. I may not be the biggest speaker in the world, however I already know that I will get far because I found my gift that was given to me.
Listen to your inner voice and make your dreams come true. Tune out the external noise because they do not know what is going on in your heart. It is like having a bunch of bees in your ear.
SWAT THEM AWAY!!!!
Think about it, do those people live in your head or know your inner passions? Probably not so there is zero reason why you should be listening to them. People will tell you not to do certain things because it goes out of something we all like to call the comfort zone. There is nothing in that comfort zone expect for a mediocre life and mediocre results. Now, if you are ok with that stay in that zone. However, if you want a certain lifestyles, results and relationships you better get yourself out of there! No greatness was ever achieved in the comfort zone and no legend was born listen to external voices.
Follow your hearts voice, instead of the voice from your surroundings because you need to do what is best for you. The best way to ignore the noise is to tune into your own noise and believe that you can do it!
Steve Job’s said this quote which sums up everything..
Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.
