“The ambitious are criticized by those who have given up.”
If you haven’t experienced mockery, jest, scorns, insults or jeer in your struggle towards success, then you’re definitely a learner on this journey.
Many times I get people ask me why I don’t keep friends close enough. Well, it may be hurting to say, but I think I’ve to tell you that I keep friends, but I only keep friends who I believe I can learn from.
The reason is simple. While it is important to keep relationships if you do not define the kinds of friends that you share your opinions or goals with. You might end up living in a fool’s paradise because they will always give you reasons why your hustle will never work.
In fact in some instances, they take steps further to thwart your goals especially to prove they are right.
So these kinds of friends are never ambitious. They don’t see anything as POSSIBLE. Their mentality is tuned towards IMPOSSIBILITIES.
Guess what? They are millions in numbers.
They’re always within and around you.
They’ll hail when you’re stupid. They’ll ignore when you’re failing. They’ll tell others that they warned you not to do it. They always have solutions to your failing paths.
But, they are the most disorganized and myopic in thoughts and ideas.
Haven’t you noticed those words ‘that when ambitious people begin to succeed, they are attracted even more by the critics than those who contributed to their success?
Listen, it is natural and no one is to be blamed.
The point here is that….. You must never be distracted by criticism because that’s what makes success thick.
If your success is void of criticism, then be rest assured that you’re on a wrong path.
Your union should be defined by ambitious goal seekers and getters.
I hope you take this seriously and realign your focus and get even more ambitious because you are either an ambitious person or a failure.
Chose one and get back to work.
Enjoy your day
