When people don’t know what’s going on your your life, they SPECULATE.
When they think they know, they FABRICATE.
And when they do know, they just HATE.
Saw this quote randomly online (tried to look up the original author but there were several authors and annoymous leads so if anyone knows, let me know!) and just got to thinking how TRUE this particular quote it is. When one is successful in any aspect of life – career, family, wealth, fitness, beauty, talent or in happiness – they are not worried about what others think. Successful people focus on drive, motivation, positivity and following their dreams and goals. Focusing on any type of negativity only slows or even hinders their success process! Who has time to give to that? Not I.
Continue to focus on your goals and when you get that weakness to quit, just go a little further and remind yourself why you started and how far you’ve come. Through the years, I found that people will judge and hate on you no matter what you do and judge you even more when they don’t know truth so they end up speculating about your life. When they try to piece their version of the truth, they only fabricate a life for you that fits into their ideas of you. But when they do know, they just hate on your success because they haven’t reached their own successes. Pay no mind to the naysayers, the haters, the judgmentals, or the negatives because while they’re busy focusing on you, you’re focusing on your dreams and goals. So keep it pushing and always strive to be a better version of you.
