Focus on your own success
People will say things behind your back, even people who should be rooting for your success.
You’ll hear about it. It’ll make you mad, it’ll infuriate you.
You’ll confront them and they’ll deny it, do whatever they can to deflect the blame. It’s easy to think that you need to stoop to their level. Resist that urge. Don’t let it turn you into someone you are not.
Being a friendly, kind and always do the right thing kind of person is what makes you special.
If you change that, you’ll be living up to someone else’s standard of living. Avoid that at all costs and ultimately find a way to rid yourself of these poisonous people.
Focusing on you, your thoughts and things you can control is the best path to long term success. (or something really thoughtful and profound to end a simple rant)
