Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself. (T.D. Jakes).
I am the master of my house and the keeper of my mind. Trying to work towards excellence with integrity and honor sometimes can be a battle. Tiring days of seeing negative posts on social media about things only people can imagine with no truth to them at all. Never a kind word they speak, finding fault in all that you do. I used to find this very upsetting and would get mad that people would make up such things about me, and then I started to realize and understand –there is not one thing I can do about it, people will believe what they choose to believe whether the story is true or not.
Being in the center of the public eye, one has to expect that they will be ridiculed with every step they make. The reason is simple; they just don’t understand. Is it my place to try and defend all that is said about me? I think not. What good would that do, only to fuel the negative thoughts and end up trying to explain again the unexplainable?
Some choose only to be loyal to that which provides them with a temporary fix and makes them look good. Once that time is over, they are onto the next shiny thing that they think will make them big. How many times have I heard, “your business is failing”, or “who does she think she is, I should be the CEO even though it’s her company.” I have been cross-examined on things that I do for the better of a business and not to satisfy myself with making and thinking I am bigger and should be paid more attention. That is not the type of person I am or strive to be. Credit is given where credit is due. Everything does not have to have my name on it if it’s a team effort it’s for the betterment of the team to be inclusive. I have found more people than not that are just in things for what they can get. For the moment, I may be the shiniest thing, and some are charging me with can you do this and that, not realizing that it’s a two-way street and again not about just one person or one thing. It’s about working as a team for the cause.
Many people claim to know me, but it’s those people that know me and the vision that I stand for that remain at my side. It’s not always about what one person wants; it has to work for the good of those around you as well. Many persons I have let go out of my life because the only agenda was to better themselves through my defeat. There is no bitterness or anger towards them; it was just time to let go and let flow as many have heard me say. I know that I am on a journey, and some are meant to be on that journey with me and some are just along for a short ride. Once they get off, I wish them well for they are on their success journey.
I am not sure many understand what Loyalty stands for. Things can go right and wrong, up and down. Does that mean that when things are down you flee to the company of others or do you stay and fight? I am loyal to the cause and will always be that way. I do not waver; that is one aspect of my life many know about me. I don’t look for the next shiny thing to drop and run too until I figure out maybe that was not the right direction to take and, therefore, start to back track. Believe in what you are doing, believe in where you are, if you never have loyalty to one thing how will you become good at it and make it succeed? Will you continue to run after every shiny thing that you see pass your way and be the opportunist at every turn?
People will say I will fail, but I only will fail because of the people that are next to me pulling me down, how one could ever fail with the perseverance of others that believe and know what it takes to get to the other side. It is best that if you cannot offer your dreams, your greatness, and desires to be part of something that maybe at the time you don’t understand, then maybe it’s time for you to rethink your motives and realize that everything to you is an opportunity, and the loyalty only lies in the ones that can do something for you and not you doing something to help the cause and working toward a common goal to make that one thing successful.
Some people are made to be in our lives, not everyone. If you are not a dreamer, believer, inspirer, unfortunately, there is will be no room in my life, as I am loyal to all with me, and that loyalty only changes when someone decides they want to be negative. You can’t ever fail with having the loyal followers behind you.
