Whenever people start talking about you behind your back, try to discourage you, and stab you in your back, you’re doing everything RIGHT!!!! I’d like to share a personal experience with you in an effort to get you to recognize how important it is to continue fulfilling your purpose, even when those who are close to you start to question your efforts and abilities.
My sister and I, Chelsea Melton, both run our own individual non-profit organizations. We also both have books that are published through major distributors. We have both worked so hard and I was certain that our progress would sit well with our family! Not only has our family spoken negatively behind our backs, they have also smiled in our faces “pretending” to support us when in reality, they’ve all been the total opposite of sincere. We wrote our books based on our own personal life experiences, not because we wanted to make some quick money. Quite frankly, we’ve always been blessed enough to live a great life without asking anyone for help so it upset me that instead of being supportive, they would assume that we had some alternative motive.
I shared that to say this…..DO YOU! REGARDLESS OF WHO QUESTIONS OR DOUBTS YOU, YOU CAN AND WILL SUCCEED IF YOU DO THE WORK.
You should know by now that family will be the first to support AND subtract from your growth. So you do some subtracting of your own and keep all the negative people out of your inner circle. Don’t get discouraged and strive for greatness. Trust me, they’ll need you before you ever need them.
