HAPPY MONDAY MOTIVATION!
Welcome back to the weekly podcast, No More Excuses! Thank you for listening, for sharing the podcasts with others (you do share this don't you??!!), AND for connecting with me on social media - like this week's shout out to Stephen for connecting with me on social media!
Whew! It's been a week! With the move creeping closer, and all the work we had to have done, and FAVORS we had to call in to make this happen, it's been chaotic and emotional!
I've seen the BEST in people - with their support and encouragement, and unfortunately I saw the WORST in someone who I thought was a friend and colleague show their lack of support and understanding!
The last couple week's podcasts have been about finding people who bring out your best. Who help you BUILD your confidence, even if they are playing "devil's advocate"! Remember, someone playing devil's advocate is purely to help you do your due diligence and think deeper so you can play BIGGER! It's about finding the supportive "WHO" in your environment, and clearing out the negative nellies!
And, as I discovered last week... there are those that do NOT support you, understand or know how to have clear communication.
Listen in this week as I talk about my recent experience with someone who I immediately removed from MY environment. And about a friend who was attacked personally and professionally. It's really like being bullied as adults.
It's a shame, as it shouldn't happen at ANY age! But it's key to NOT get deep into it. You have to realize sometimes people do this because of their own lack of confidence, their fears and most importantly THEIR lack of accomplishing much of anything!
It's hard to shift that mindset and realize it's NOT you. And, to keep doing YOU. BE YOU! And to not allow anyone take that from you.
You reputation precedes you, and it also will be around long after YOU are gone. [So make sure you know what it looks like!] This week, continue to purge your environment. Who's in there? Who's supportive? Who's saying SHIT about you behind your back, about your integrity?
It's time to evaluate. But don't go there! Don't let it consume you. Remember misery loves company, and you don't deserve that and they don't deserve YOU!
Have a great – drama-free – week! BE. DO. YOU!
