The other day I wrote post called Imaginary Enemies where I talked about loving negative stuff like “haters” holding you down.
I didn’t know this at the time of writing it, but “imaginary haters” is a thing!! When I googled it I found a tons of memes!
Now, I don’t happen to agree with all the memes, cause they are kind of mean!
But I do have larger opinions on this “haters” thing…
The Parade Without The Work
Anyone that says “Haters” are holding them back are people that want to have something special without working for it.
They’re talking about other people to distract you from the fact they aren’t doing anything.
There is no group of evil villains that twart your efforts to succeed.
You just don’t want to put in the work.
The poster child for this behavior is Johnny Manziel.
He wanted to be great, and he wanted to win and make an impact, but he didn’t want to practice. He didn’t want to watch film. He didn’t want to grind.
He wanted to Super Bowl Parade but didn’t want to have to work for it.
And guess what, he talked about haters too, and that means all he really wanted to do was TALK, TALK, TALK, and not do SHIT.
And in the end, he didn’t do anything but get labeled a BUST.
If you Think About Your “Haters”
I’m not trying to be mean, promise.
I actually spent a large portion of my life talking about things others should do, or what someone else should do to improve my situation.
I never talked about haters, but I surely talked more than I took action. I woke up to this fact after attending an amazing self development seminar called the Landmark Forum.
It was a sobering realization that I wait for others to do things, and I don’t take action myself!
It caused me to be a complainer honestly.
I’m writing this hoping that someone will read it and can wake up to the fact that they are being a coward.
Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is taking action is the presence of fear.
If you want to do it, go do it.
If you’re not going to go do it, then stop talking about it. (That’s a message to you and me both!)
It’s not the Haters you gotta worry about.
It’s using the “haters” as a scapegoat that holds so many back!
Go do what ever it is you’ve been talking about! Go accomplish something that you’ve been thinking about!
Take action today!
Love you 🙂
