“You need a new circle dude.”
Whenever you pursue a career you really want to do, you will always have people who doubt you. You have those that think you are no good, or not good enough. And they feel this way because they have an idea of how they see you. They can’t see past what you are, that is ingrained in their heads. Whenever you exceed the expectations of others they start to get upset with you. Why, well you’re not supposed to be more than what I see. Because my belief system means something. And if you are more than my belief, then you are going to be perceived as someone I will clash with in life.
Who are these people in your inner circle that feel they need to be the ones telling you that you are no good. Now granted, sometimes people make some good points and assessments of who you are, but at times they are more envious than anything. That’s when it’s time to choose a new circle of people. Because being around people like this can stunt your career growth. If all you hear are people telling you what is or isn’t possible, you start to believe in the voices. And before you know it, you’re producing garbage or quitting just to satisfy others around you.
Before you take the advice of someone or people that say to you that you can’t succeed, take a look at their existence. I am willing to bet you that they are doing something that they truly love. Because anyone that loves what they do are not going to sway you away from what you’re good at or love to do. People like to project what they don’t like about themselves onto you. They can’t see themselves in that position and they feel they are more talented than you. So how is it that you’re gong to be in that specific place in life.
