In the entrepreneur space, sometimes we find ourselves in situations that we don’t quite understand what’s going on. Did I do something to upset you? Was I not sincere? What happened?
For example, in the past few months I noticed a couple of people decided to ‘unfriend’ me from social media platforms. Something like this, in the past, would linger in my mind. I would wonder.. what did I do, why are they disconnecting, why, why, why??? Boohoohoo!
After taking serious, conscious steps towards aligning myself and using meditation as a daily anchor to maintain a positive day, ‘unfriending’ actions do not sway me. I am grateful I don’t take any of these situations personally. You know why? Because it’s not about me. These actions have to do with each individual and THEIR perceptions, NOT mine.
I also realize the journey I am on won’t be for the weak at heart, won’t be for anyone misaligned, won’t be for anyone giving me the ‘side eye’. I realize I’m attracting all the right people into my life so I can continue growing my event management business & launch MasterMind4Kids. That’s my focus, period.
The ones falling off are supposed to fall off! I’ll be honest, this is a comforting feeling.
My mission in life is VERY clear and I cannot allow external factors to affect my feelings or emotions. I control my emotions, period!! This is a huge victory for me! I AM the Queen of this ship!
I share this because I see fellow entrepreneurs get knocked down when others are throwing shade their way. We cannot control what others do or say about us; what we CAN control is how we react to them.
Here are a few tips that were helpful in my alignment:
Try out a few of these nuggets of goodness if they resonate with you. I’d love to hear about your entrepreneur and mindset adventures. Everyday is eye opening for me and I’m loving the experience as it unfolds, how about you?
