Not Giving A Damn
Listening To Our Doubt
You know that feeling that you’re being held back? It doesn’t matter what or who it is, but we all have gone through a hell storm because someone decided to stop you. In most cases, we tend to listen to those that hold us back. But when is it enough for you to not give a damn?! That’s what happened to me, and I’m here to tell you, don’t give a damn, because at the end of the day if you want to rise to the next level, you have to not give a damn about the haters.
Chains To Nowhere
I remember when I first got started as an entrepreneur, I joined network marketing. I was excited, and I wanted revenge because, at the time of 2010, I was going through a heartbreak. They told me success is the best revenge, and I wholeheartedly wanted that. As I was super excited about my new venture, I told my family about it, and they were not so thrilled about it. In fact, they were against it, and they didn’t believe I can do it. Although it hurt hearing doubt from family and friends, I kept it going but only for a little bit. Failure after failure, the more I failed, I had the urge to tell my family… and I did. The only thing I got back was, “Well at least you tried.” Ain’t that something? I caved in and gave a damn about what they thought of me and their words.
Through trial and error, learning from all of my lessons, I FINALLY LEVELED UP!!!! I broke free from the chains and just got sick and tired of being sick and tired. It was 2017, and I had just said, “f*#$ it, I’m tired of the bs!” I stepped up and didn’t give a damn about my financial situation, didn’t give a damn about the naysayers, and didn’t give a damn about people who didn’t have a vision. Let me tell you this if you are ever going to succeed, how will you if you only listen to people who doubt you? Look very closely at your surrounding, because the people that doubt you could be the ones that are family and friends. You don’t level up by being naive, you level up by accepting responsibilities and your current situation. No one is perfect, but your life as an entrepreneur can be perfect when you don’t give a damn.
