Have you ever had one of ‘those’ days?
A day when someone says something to you and it makes you want to quit?
Chances are, if you are alive and human, the answer is a definite yes.
Words can be very powerful, they can be inspiring, motivating and thought provoking or they can be negative, damaging and destructive.
Sometimes all it takes is one comment from someone else for you to question everything about who you are & what you are doing….
I’m sure have experienced this for yourself?
Someone says something and you think to yourself ‘what’s the point? I may aswell give in’!
Perhaps it was a total stranger, a family member, a ‘friend’, a colleague, or your boss?
Maybe it was intentionally damaging, maybe it was flippant.
Perhaps what was said came out of jealousy or misunderstanding, whatever the reason, the effect is often the same….
IF you let it.
By replaying these words over and over in your head, you begin to give these words power, power which can eat away at you, if you let it…..I know because I can be very guilty of this myself.
This is like adding petrol to the fire.
If you find yourself losing sleep over what may have been said to you, or you are questioning who you are, remember this:
The chances are, the person responsible for what has been said, does not care! Ill repeat that: they don’t care!
They are not losing sleep over it, they are not questioning themselves, and they probably haven’t given it a second thought!
So, why should you?
I’m sharing this with you today, because on your way to achieving your goals, you will face adversity from others & you will face the ‘opinions’ of others.
Please do not let this detract you from what you truly want to achieve.
If you have already begun your journey, don’t forget how far you have come, and if you are just starting out, don’t give up based on the words of others.
That’s all for today, until the next time,
Tristan ‘They don’t care’ Buttle.
