In today’s society, so many of us are trying to fit in and appease the committee of “they.” We want to be relatable and liked without seeming different or odd.
When I first got into business, my friends and family would often question my goals and dreams wondering if I were being realistic. Wanting to be financially independent and retire at an early age was so far-fetched for them they thought I was crazy.
If you look at anybody that has success whether it be a professional athlete, a famous musician, or a successful business owner, they all have some traits in common; they observed the masses and did the opposite and they were, at one time, un-relatable.
When their friends or family were going on vacation for two weeks, they stayed behind and continued to master their craft. When the hot topic at the water cooler was about last night’s news or American Idol, they did not partake in the conversation because they did not watch any of that. They were busy chasing their own dreams rather than watching someone else live theirs.
Now I am not proposing that you totally ignore family or friends, but just understand that in order to achieve anything at a high level, you will have to do some things that they will not understand or even agree with. You just have to know in your heart that what you are doing is right and they will see when you accomplish your goals.
Being un-relatable can be fun! Knowing that you are willing to do what nobody else is willing to do so you can live like most people won’t is the drive that will keep you in pursuit of your goals and dreams. Try it, I think you just might relate!
