So let’s have some girl talk (guys you’re welcome too, we’re all affected by what I’ll be discussing).
I was thinking about when I read a Zig Ziglar book back in the day. Zig Ziglar was all about positivity. He promoted it. Negativity sometimes smacks us in the face. We try to dodge it, we refuse to address it but in order to have vision we gotta get it out of our face. Yea, sometimes negativity can blind us from seeing our own potential. The fact that we can’t see our own potential can keep us from even working towards goals. You have to (figuratively) beat it into your own head that you CAN AND WILL! If you don’t believe in you, who will?
What about when the “peanut gallery is negative? People say that if you don’t have “haters” you’re not doing good. But is it really a good idea to have “haters” and to give that disguised negativity the time of day? We’ll ask yourself what good it does. Negativity is not motivation it’s spewed to stifle progress. Instead of paying the hate any kind, continue to push forward and make you better. It’s hard not to respond to the negative but start responding to the positive instead. Receive compliments and encouragement. Build new partnerships and relationships and enjoy the space you’re in. Remember success is nothing without someone to share it with! So maybe the saying should be if you don’t have love, you’re not poppin! Remember love starts with “self” so if you don’t have self-love….
So this entire post was inspired by a shirt that I recieved from @coolasdetroitstuff on Instagram. You’ll see the tee in the following pics but rally quick let me say, the quality is excellent and and the message is positive! It says “you hate, I slay”. It proclaims not getting involved in negativity even if it’s directed towards the person wearing the tee! I’m wearing a medium and the shirt is pretty true to size. As a blogger, the words are a perfect fit!
Later Cupcakes! 💋
