There will always be the few. Who criticize. Who despise. Those who are literally watching and waiting to see you fail. Secretly, they scroll your social media accounts hoping that they can pick up on some sort of clue that things aren't going as well for you as you'd like them to!
There will always be the few. Who judge. Who gossip. Those who would rather see you fail than see themselves succeed. Unfortunately, they place more of their emotional energy on critiquing you than creating for themselves.
But my encouragement to you today is simply this:
Don't let the hate you receive from "the few," steal your joy from the love you receive from "the many."
Focus your attention on the many. Who love. Who appreciate. Those who want to see you succeed! Openly, they scroll your social media accounts liking and loving the things that you post because seeing you happy makes them happy!
Focus your attention on the many. Who receive. Who affirm. Those who understand that you being great takes nothing away from them being great! Joyfully, they encourage you knowing that your success feeds into their success.
Leader, you have a choice. To be distracted by "the few" or to be motivated by "the many."
I encourage you to be motivated by "the many." Because the reality is, if you become too distracted by "the few," "the many" will soon become the "the neglected."
