Owning Your Success
The world is full of people who want to tell you how to live your life, and not all of them have your best interest at heart. There are people who are going to look at you and say that you can’t do something or that you don’t deserve to own a space that you have worked hard to occupy. At Pro Black, we see this for what it is: fear and jealousy. Throughout your life, you will meet people who will not want you to succeed, and who will actively speak against you. It’s inevitable, but it doesn’t change anything. In this post, we’re going to talk about how to own your excellence and silence those who speak against you.
When you work hard, you take pride in what you do. You feel good about it. You know that you deserve the good things coming to you, even if someone else disagrees. Working hard allows you to be confident in your actions, and it is what will carry you forward in life. Let them talk while you get to work, then see who ends up better off in the end.
Trusting yourself is crucial when it comes to owning your excellence. If you don’t trust in yourself and your actions, you will lack the confidence to take credit for your success. Trust in your values, your hard work, and your goals. This will help you when everyone else stands against you.
Remember Who You Are
People will have a lot of opinions about who you are, especially when you succeed. There will always be people in the room who want to speak against your work and what you have. Let them have their opinions. As long as you know who you are, you can feel good about what you do.
Yes, You Deserve It
At Pro Black, we know that not everyone promotes excellence and success. Worse, some people only think that only certain kinds of people deserve it. We know that success belongs to anyone willing to work for it. Keep your head on straight, keep working, and shut them up.
