Seems this past week I’ve taken a lot of heat (and shit).
I dunno if it’s the post-Easter sugar crash, but the criticism has been coming thick and fast.
Some from trolls…
Some from contacts…
Some from acquaintances…
Now, I don’t know about you, but when it comes to criticism, valid or not, in my experience, most don’t like eating shit.
It feels uncomfortable at best and infuriating at worst.
It’s the way we are hard-wired as men.
We are animals and we want to be part of the pack.
… The trouble being, that taking shit naturally signals that you are OUT not in.
Yet here’s the thing most men in our shoes would be wise to consider about criticism, condemnation and complaints:
The More You Build Up, The More They Will Tear You Down.
The fucked up bit being…
The higher you go – the more they will ENJOY shooting your down in flames.
…Maybe because they’re jealous.
…Maybe because they’ve got nothing better to do.
…Maybe because they’re just a cunt.
Either way, the fall-out is swift, fast and inevitable.
If you start to stand up and deliver – they are coming with pitchforks in hand, wanting to burn you publicly at the stake.
Which is why, this week my friend, your mantra for money is this…
Learn To Take The Shit.
… And get comfortable with criticism.
It should be like water off a duck’s back.
See it as a badge of honour that should be worn with pride.
It means you brother, are winning.
Make More. Provide More. Be More.
