People will criticize or try to make you wrong when you start moving down a new and different path. But as soon as you start gaining traction or seeing success, those same people will call you a genius and follow your lead. That’s because how they feel (champion or critic) is a reflection of their fears, values, and beliefs. 100%. There are certain factors and metrics and ways of being they need to feel comfortable and safe. So when you start doing what feels true and aligned for you and it’s outside of that… they will fight like hell to try and pull you back in their known direction.
It has absolutely nothing to do with you.
The farther you stray from the familiar path, the more people will have an opinion or feedback. The more they will question your every move, directly or indirectly. The more they may even distance themselves from you and your life entirely. It comes from fear, and oftentimes love, but it has absolutely nothing to do with you. It also has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not what you’re doing is right or wrong, good or bad, possible or impossible.
Don’t let them sway you.
Stay focused on walking your path.
Their fears are not your guidepost.
YOUR heart and intuition are.
Trust and faith and keep on moving.
You decide what’s possible for you and your life.
You decide what’s right and true.
You and no one else. 💕
