A letter to my naysayers

Dear naysayer,

I don’t know what’s the issue but I know you might be hating on my dreams. You are unhappy, envious and jealous of what I’m doing or am trying to do.

You think that I can’t do it. And that I’m crazy for embarking on this kind of stuff.

I just have 5 things to tell you before I get back to work.

1. You are just criticising from the sidelines. I’m hustling on the frontlines.

You sound like the spectator who yells and curses at the players on the field for not being able to see the opponent coming, which was why they got the ball and scored.

Guess what?! Why not you try to make the team? Then try to make it into the finals? While hitting the gym and the track 2-3 times a day, everyday?

There you are making sounds but here I am making something happen. If you think you are smart/tough/fit/good enough, roll up your sleeves, and jump into the trench with me. Don’t just talk, do.

2. You are not making a way; you are getting in my/the way.

A famous proverb says “It’s better to light a candle than curse the darkness.

Your cursing, whining, whinging and complaining isn’t changing anything. In fact, it is making you and others feel worse.

Stop it!

If you have nothing constructive to contribute, step aside. If you can’t help to make a way, then for goodness sake, don’t block the way.

3. You hate on dreams because you have given up on yours.

Why are you hating on success, hunger, ambition and greatness?

It could be because you have already given up on them.

If I hate on someone else’s dreams, it says less about them and more about me.

People who criticise those who go to the gym are most likely overweight and unhealthy themselves.

People who despise the rich are those who don’t have their finances in order.

People who talk behind others’ backs are those who are usually behind not ahead.

People who say that the ambitious are being too greedy are usually those who have long subscribed and succumbed to the poverty mindset.

People who think that so-and-so’s idea as being crazy are usually the ones who are living dull, boring, mediocre and uninspiring lives.

People who tell you to play by the rules and to play it safe are the ones who don’t dare to step out of their comfort zones.

People who exhibit and perpetuate the tall poppy syndrome are those who don’t grow tall at all.

4. You are only giving me more fuel to prove you wrong.

I’m not defined by your criticisms. I’m refined by them.

The more things you say against me, the more I’ll use them to propel me forward, to add more value to the world and to strive to prove you wrong.

And I only need to get it right once.

You, who are trying to protect and preserve the status quo, have to get it right all the time.

But when I’m trying to disrupt and challenge the status quo and pushing for breakthrough, I just have to get it right once, and the entire game changes.

5. I’m not really bothered by you; I have bigger and better things to do.

You are so passionate and obsessed about what others do around you that you neglect your own house and business.

I’m staying in my lane and I’m focused.

I don’t even need to rebut what you say because I’m choosing to be the bigger person – always adding value, giving back, empowering others, seeing abundance and seizing opportunities.

Seriously, I have bigger and better things to do.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. – Mahatma Gandhi

God bless you and I wish you all the best.

As for me, I’m getting back to work, getting shit done and working my magic. And there’s nothing you can do about it!
