Your Wednesday Positive Vibes
I’m hopping from meeting to meeting in Atlanta today, so I don’t have a lot of time to write. I did want to get one point out today, because I’m dealing with something, and it’s on my mind.
The harder you work and the higher you build your castle, there will always be someone jealous of your successes who will try to kick your castle down, rather than put in the hard work to build their own.
It’s not right, not cool and certainly not fair – but this world isn’t right, cool or fair. It’s full of assholes who would rather spread negativity than see everyone do well and be filled with positive vibes. They attack, they spread drama, they even create fiction just to get attention. I know… I used to be that guy. Luckily, I changed years ago. Too many haven’t.
None of that means they have to win. They may give you a headache. They may even set you back a few days, weeks or months. But you will always win, because you are a builder. And a builder knows that in every scenario, they will face an obstacle. In knowing, a builder can be ready for anything. They become stronger.
As Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius said, “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.”
Use the ones coming after you as fuel to work harder, faster and smarter. They may try to fill you with negativity, but in the end, they’re just fueling your Positive Vibes.
I hope your Wednesday is awesome!
PS – speaking of haters, I have to point out that this is a throwback pic.
