Who should you be listening to and who should you ignore?

Updated: Apr 4

It is hard to believe that March is coming to an end! I want to begin this week by thanking those who are sticking with me and continuing to read this blog. To be completely transparent, I have been struggling with motivation and my mindset. I have not been motivated to do anything more than the bare minimum to survive and find myself in a negative mental cycle. Sure I’m seeing some positives in my life and smile for a moment but struggle with continuing to look for the positive. This is not my normal, nor do I want it to become my normal. I am forcing myself to take steps that lead to a healthy routine. I am thankful for a great support system that refuses to give up on me. It is a vital necessity that everyone have a support system they can lean on, no matter the circumstance.

The quote that I included in this week’s picture is becoming my quote to live by and a quote that I offer frequently to those struggling with the opinions of others or perceived opinions of others. Since high school, I have, for the most part not cared what others thought of me. My go-to mindset has been, “This is me, take or leave it.” I’m not changing myself to fit your idea of who it is I should be. There are some exceptions to this as I am a recovering people pleaser, and it applies to my personality more than anything.

This quote also serves as motivation in business. I once heard someone say to never accept criticism when it comes to your business from someone who has not accomplished more than you. They do not know your destination or how to get there,  because if they were as all knowing as they claim, they would be able to show you the steps to get there and proof of their own journey. Sometimes as entrepreneurs and business owners, we have to rely on our gut to know what step to take next. I’m not saying to go at it alone. Seek advice from someone in the business and close to your goal or destination and/or hire a business coach that has proven success in your field.

I know this week’s post is a little different, but I hope you are able to find some inspiration or helpful information through my ramblings. Thank you for going on this mental journey with me and know that I plan on seeing you next week in another encouraging blog post. Put on your big kid britches and keep putting one foot in front of the other!
