When You Find Success, They Will Come For You


I learned a long time ago when you reach a certain level of success, and I’m not saying I’m successful, people will start doing and saying all sorts of things to tear you down. Ignore them. It’s pointless to pay attention to those looking to quash your dreams and hard work.

There will be times when you want to quit. Don’t. Don’t quit. Never stop pushing. It will be hard and it will often times feel like you’re alone in it all, but never stop pushing. Only you can change your destiny and only you can fulfill your dreams. I hate saying it but there is no magic bullet. There is no Princess / Princess Charming. It’s all on you. If you have friends and family who stand by you, great. If not, keep pushing anyway. Don’t live for anyone else but yourself. It sounds greedy, but again, only you can change your destiny.

Keep working even when you’re depressed and only want to lie in bed all day. I’ve been there and I still find myself there often – more often than I’d like to admit. Still, I make myself get up and I make myself work. My work isn’t going to make me rich or famous or loved by millions. It’s what I like to do though and it’s fulfilling in more ways than one.

Go ahead and let them say means things to you. Ignore it. Let them troll you. Don’t respond. Let them spread lies. Just remember only you know your truth. Success will not suddenly come to you. You have to reach out and take it.

Never stop pushing. Never give up. Never surrender.
