Unsupportive spouses and loved ones are way too common when it comes to wanting to stray from the status quo and go after our dreams.
Although most lack of support from our families comes from a place of love (meaning they probably mean well when they shit all over your dream) but it can be debilitating.
Without your personal cheerleaders you have to carry the weight all on your own, that weight can be too heavy sometimes.
We DON'T need people agreeing that we can’t accomplish it when we are having a rough day.
We DON'T need spouses breathing down our necks about the time and the money we are investing into our dreams.
We DON’T need judgement from our high school friends who have no idea what it is like to have a fire in your belly to create something incredible and share your voice.
We NEED community to be successful, we NEED people in our corner cheering us on and telling us to stay strong when things get challenging.
Let me ask you this:
Why would you ever spend energy on others' opinions if they don’t want to support you in doing what makes YOU happy?
What is their reasoning to feel so entitled that they know what is best for you over YOU.
Let me also ask you this:
Why would you ever take advice from someone who doesn't have the results that you have?
Maybe your mom was a bomb ass stay at home mom but if you want to start a bomb ass online blog or business she is probably the LAST person to seek advice from… especially when she barely knows how to work her Iphone.
Would you hire a personal trainer who didn't have the kind of body that motivates you?
Only if you want to be lazy AF in your gym sessions.
Seeking advice from others who don't have the results that you want, and who aren't living the life that you want to create for yourself is a BIG mistake.
This is YOUR life, you have to LIVE it for YOUrself.
