How many competitions have you entered in your life? Is there just ONE that stands out? Did you WIN anything or placed in the event?
It’s in our nature to be competitive, but about making “placements” in our life as a whole? Huh? I know this may sound a bit confusing, but stick with me here. We all have priorities no matter what our age is. We categorize them and then act on them accordingly.
Some of these priorities have TOP placement in our lives, while others tend to ALWAYS be at the bottom of the barrel! Our priorities are influenced by EVERYTHING around us.
I found that if I am around a group of ambitious entrepreneur’s I too will be very ambitious. If I am around a group of complainers, then I find myself complaining about stuff. It’s the way things work…you are who you hang around.
In my family, we place our Family’s needs above EVERYTHING! We go above and beyond to help each other out. It’s almost like it’s in our DNA.
Recently, my wife and I were in a pickle. It was something important that needed to be taken care of immediately. After a discussion, we then turned to friends and family about it. The reaction was AMAZING! our family responded with ease and quickness!
Our problem was solved and taken care of by FAMILY members of ALL sorts! It wasn’t just ONE group of Family member’s, it was several different ones with different backgrounds that came together and SOLVED our problem.
I couldn’t be more thankful for the LOVE and SUPPORT we have in our family members. This situation right here is the EXACT reason why we place FAMILY FIRST!!!
That’s right, Family took FIRST PLACE!
It’s a give and take kind of thing that I don’t think ANYONE can explain. We do NOT take it for granted and are overwhelmingly grateful to be a part of such a loving network of people.
I was just curious if there is ANYONE else out there who feels the same way or has ANOTHER priority (aside from God) first?
Let me know if you share a similar experience and if you too place FAMILY FIRST!
To Your Massive Success,
Is your armor on? I know exactly what it feels like to have doubt try to get in the way of your vision. It attempts to eclipse your dreams with the fog of negativity. How we perceive doubt and doubters will determine our outcome. I’m not sure about you, but a fire sets deep down inside when I hear a doubter talk.
At the same time, it’s almost funny to hear them talk; their pitiful little excuses praying on your failure. It’s sad, but the truth is, they don’t want you to succeed. Actually, they are scared because if you DO conquer your dreams, it indirectly challenges THEM and who THEY are. And we all know haters enjoy their normalcy. They absolutely LOVE being comfortable. They avoid any sort of challenge by any means possible.
You have to sit back and ask yourself, what are they doing that’s so significant? Whose lives are they changing? What good are they providing society? What service or product are they bringing to the table that will enhance lives and bring prosperity? These average low-thinking folks aren’t on the same level as you.
They can’t even compete with you, that’s why they doubt everything you do. They aren’t even on the same playing field; they can’t touch you. They come nowhere near your hard work and dedication. Your persistency and consistency is killing them inside; this isn’t even a competition. You think and act different than doubters do. You are on another realm of life attempting the unthinkable and doing the impossible…
Meanwhile, the doubter is on the couch eating junk, complaining there is nothing on TV. Yet have the nerve to even make a remark to someone who is out there striving to accomplish their dreams. What a joke! Your dream must be bigger than doubt and the doubters.
You must protect your dreams and visions with authority. Don’t let the negativity of a non-believing doubter sway you in ANY way! Your dreams are worth more than that. In fact, the value increases each time a hater says something. So don’t allow the doubt to bring you down; stand strong in the face of hate and remember that they simply aren’t on your level!
