Do what you love...
Those of you who know me, know that I LOVE my music!! It’s an integral part of me and, to be honest, there are a lot of lessons I’ve taken from
various artists I listen to. That being said, I wonder how many of you
caught Darius Rucker on HLNTV
this morning. Not only is he one of the most grounded and humble people
out there, but he said something that really hit home. He was asked
about how he deals with nasty and derogatory comments and he said that
those will always be out there - he just
plays for the people who like his music. There’s a lesson there for
everyone - in business or not: There will always be people out there
who, for whatever reason, don’t like you, don’t like what you do, don’t
like what you wear, etc. Stop wasting energy and time wondering why,
trying to “win them over”, etc. in order to change their minds. Someone
will always be like that and if you’re wasting time chasing them for
their approval, you miss those closest to you - your supporters, your
raving fans - the ones who get the reason you do what you do.
Incidentally, those also happen to be the same people who love you
precisely for what it is you do…..happiness lies there, folks.
………..Have an awesome day!
