Whenever we have a great idea that is going to be a successful one, the first thing we want to do is share it with our world. We usually start with the people who are closest to us, such as our families,friends and followers.Since these people hold such a dear place in our lives,we assumed they’re supportive of us, want us to be successful in everything we set to do,but this is not always the case. Although they might actually want us to succeed or say that they do, something else is going on in their subconscious.
Almost deep down, whether they know it or not, something registers that really scares them. They realized that, if they go along with our new ideas,and we are successful, we are going to change and turn our backs,and so will our relationship. If they support our goals for higher learning, we may be more educated and they’ll feel that we won’t have interest or conversation with them anymore. If we start a diet, they may not have those snackfest pigouts that we have every Saturday night at the movies. If we start a successful business, we maybe too busy for them or start socializing with a different class of people.
Without us knowing their thoughts, they will start to find all sorts of flaws with our ideas and try to convince us not to go ahead with it. They may seem supportive but they may also be a little hesitant with their support. These friends, followers or family members can really kill any drive we have for success,and leave us stuck in the same place that we have always been with no chance of growing and reaching for the stars of success.
I used the word “Lucky” people don’t usually have this problem, because they make friends or already socialize with people that are where they want to be. If they want to be rich, they will hang out with rich people. If they want to be in good shape, they will hang out at a gym. I don’t remember who said this,but there was one wealthy man who said,” That if he ever lost all his money, he would work hard to buy himself a nice suit and then go hang out at a country club with rich people.”
When we have a great idea and we are really motivated, try to keep the idea to ourselves for a little bit while we put together a plan and figure out how we are going to do it. If we tell anyone about it, make sure they are someone who is already where we want to be. After all, if we get advice, the person who is already there is the best person to get it from. Just remember, “Never take advice from someone who has never successfully done what you want to do.” If we take their advice, we will end up exactly where they are.
