Have you ever had someone in your life, that can’t rejoice with your triumphs? The one that can’t say “Congratulations”, “Good Job”, “I’m proud of you” etc. ? As you achieve your dreams, from them you gain no support. They are disgruntled. They are angry. They talk about you. Sometimes even in front of you they talk, but they do not have enough character to speak directly to you.
Often in life, when we are on the right track, we encounter such people who try to discourage us. For me, these people inspire me even more. It feeds the fire, and encourages me to keep going. It tells me I am on to something good! These people, are just a test, to see how bad we want whatever it is we are after. These people, are disgruntled because we are doing something they can’t. They are upset because as they see us succeed, they feel they have fallen short in their own life.
So, let them talk. Let them laugh. Let them discourage you because they have nothing in their own life to be proud of. Because in the end, when you have reached your goals, you get the final laugh. Not them.
