Sometimes, I get so excited about a big idea or the possibility of a new opportunity that I want to shout it to the world! Who doesn't love good news, right? Everyone loves good news...just not always YOUR good news.
I have never bought into the concept of "haters." Quite frankly, I can't stand the term. Why would someone use their time, energy, and resources to be all up in my business? I do not, I repeat, do not believe there are people out there wishing me ill will. I do, however, believe no one will have the same passion for me as me. I understand that sometimes it's best to keep certain things to myself. My recent focus has been on making things happen without an audience. I have found this to be the best route for me because, honestly, some things just don't pan out. Sometimes I change my mind. I may alter my timeline. The last thing I need is someone not as invested in my future as I am looking over my shoulder and providing unsolicited advice. All the more reason to keep things under wraps until it's an accomplishment and not just a plan.
I love the analogy this week's article by Christina Daniels uses to explain this concept of moving in silence. If you have a safe with 5 million dollars in it, who do you trust with the access code? That's deep, y'all.
Work hard in silence, let your success make the noise.” – Frank Ocean
PLEASE NOTE: I don't know Ms. Daniels, her skills, or her work ethic. I am in no way endorsing her. I'm sharing because it's a darn good article!
