The evening looks good on you FELLA!
So, you are now a big boy/girl?
This is a question people tend to always ask you when you show signs of maturity.
Especially those that watched you grow.
They tend to get familiar with you while you develop in Age.
When you suddenly begin to show signs of responsibility, you suddenly get that mantra.
“So, you are now a big boy/girl?”
And in my mind, I would be like “YES - I AM”
They won’t believe you have grown.
They still see you the way you have always been.
Let me give you an example that would make sense to you.
Have you not noticed how people suddenly look grown up when you see them after a while?
Look at how your younger brother has suddenly added height like goliath.
I am sure you can relate.
But, you most likely would not see the difference if you stayed with these people. You would get familiar with their growth.
It is the same with your business and whatever you do.
There is a way those who are close to you don’t see anything special in what you do. They just think you are playing or joking. They feel like you are not serious with your life and all that crap.
And you tend to want to lash out at them.
You are suddenly surprised and disappointed.
You are asking questions about it.
Let me be frank with you.
IT HAPPENS TO EVERYONE
Those who are around you would not believe in what you have to offer at first.
It does not make them a bad person and it does not make you a less important person as well.
IT IS SIMPLY CALLED THE LAW OF FAMILIARITY.
I HAVE BEEN THROUGH THAT SHITHOLE BEFORE.
Let me give you an advice.
1) Do not waste your time trying to prove a point to them.
You would only be wasting your time.
2) Do not hold them in animosity.
Grudges slow you down and pushes you to make wrong choices.
3) Work hard!
ENSURE THAT YOU BECOME SUCCESSFUL
Let me tell you a fact!
WHEN YOU START OUT, YOU ARE ALWAYS A LONE WOLF.
FUCK PEOPLE’S ATTENTION FELLA!
Improve your skills.
Nobody denies TRUE SUCCESS.
Everyone would want to have access to you when you become successful.
DON’T SELL YOURSELF CHEAP.
Get back on track and keep working.
Give only TIME your ATTENTION.
Don’t even try to think your family members or friends would patronize you at first.
HA HA HA
You would be soooooooooooo disappointed dear.
Your clients are mostly strangers and not FRIENDS or FAMILY.
Leave your familiar territory out of the equation.
Don’t get emotional.
Break away from that ENTITLEMENT mentality that makes you think “THEY SHOULD BUY FROM ME SINCE THEY ARE MY FAMILY MEMBERS”
You are not getting the support you need from familiar quarters?
You are not ALONE.
I have been there and I can tell you that IT SUCKS.
But, you would SUCK MORE by wasting time on such mundane issue.
Hope you got my Gist?
I am sure you did.
Sleep tight dude.
BUT if you run night shift just like me,
THE HUSTLE CONTINUES.
I would see you tomorrow.
I am out of here.
