Thank You For Your Opinion

You are, at times, going to run into people who will ridicule what you are trying to do in life. Not just the fact that you are working towards something good for yourself, but the actual thing you are working on.

Recently I had an interesting conversation with a couple of individuals who visited my website. I like feedback on my website, in fact, I encourage it. It helps me grow as a person and as an entrepreneur.

The first person said that an image on my website didn’t give him a feeling of peace and serenity, and that he would suggest changing it to represent Zen or some other peace inducing image. Although I understood what he was trying to say, my website’s main purpose is to awaken and stir the positive feelings that lay sometimes lay dormant in us. I want people to know that they have a choice in how they want to live their lives, and to go out there and do it.

I left a comment on how negative people will try to tear you down and then a second person ridiculed that comment. I was told that if I could not handle the heat, I should stay out of the kitchen.

Who Do You Think You Are?!

I will admit it, although I am working on myself all the time, I still get feelings of anger, frustration, and sadness. How could this person come to my website, obviously not read it, and make a “suggestion” on something I have been working on so diligently? Then I thought about how difficult it would be to change the image, it took me awhile to figure out the programming to get the picture just right. Perhaps the message that I am trying to make isn’t clear, I would hate to have people misunderstand me and make the wrong choices for their lives. As you may see, I was very upset and even took a day off from my site to reflect.

And that’s when it hit me. I was trying to spread a message to the world that they have the power to do whatever they want in life. Sometimes, not everyone is going to understand what you are trying to convey. Perhaps it isn’t the right time for them, maybe they refuse to hear because of a past issue, or maybe they truly wish you to fail because they did. The lopsided opinions of a few individuals that live on this planet shouldn't make a difference in the direction you want to go with your life, or the direction of your message.

Thank You And Move On

There are many people who think that their opinions of you are correct for you and your life. They believe that what was good or bad for them is good or bad for you. The best way to deal with those types of people, if they are coming from spite, anger, ridicule, or disrespect, is to just thank them for their opinion and move on. Don’t give that opinion a chance to take root, delete it from your mind and thoughts as quickly as possible, reaffirm who you are and where you are going, and move on.
