Whenever you try to break free from being “normal” to being “exceptional” in everything in life, others wont like that and will do their damnedest to make you feel like shit!! One of the worst things you can do in life is listen to people who aren’t trying to do what your trying to do too.
Think about it, how many people are out there sitting back on their couches and merely existing through life. You see it all the time, people who barely finished high school talking shit about doctors, politicians etc. You see people who cant kick a ball 10 feet call out sports stars. You can hear people talking shit about combat sports who are afraid of their own shadow. The list is endless.
There is a pattern here, the people who make noise, criticising the most are the people who failed to even attempt greatness. Its so easy now for people to publicly judge others through social media and online platforms which gives these people a voice. These perennial underachievers can now easily hide and talk shit to make themselves feel better, its human psychology 101, bringing down others to help yourself feel taller.
You cant allow these cowards prevent you from excelling in life or at the very least, attempting to do so. If the people around you aren’t pulling for you and pushing you to maximise your potential you need to rid yourself of them. These people will do everything in their power to bring you down and make you feel insecure because they aren’t willing to give the effort you are everyday of your life.
