Lions don’t turn around when small dogs bark.African Proverb
When you go to that extreme level, you’re going to hear a lot of chatter, and a lot of background noise.
People will say, ‘Hey, slow down, smell the roses. Don’t work so hard. You only have one life. Enjoy it. Take a break.’
But lions don’t turn around when they hear small dogs bark.
They keep going. And as a result, they get to have the satisfaction of knowing that they broke through barriers and did something nobody else has ever done before.
If you have massive goals, you need to determine how to reach those goals.
How can you get an edge?
It starts with utilizing the time you have:
As you start to gain momentum toward your goals, you will no doubt begin to hear from others.
Sometimes, people share their concerns, which are based on their own fears. Other times, people will feel like you are leaving them behind. And others – well, you know the saying – haters gonna hate.
The truth is, it doesn’t matter what voices you are hearing. If you let them, these people will constantly hold you back. You have to stay focused on your goals – and that means not listening to the noise of others.
When someone tells you something is impossible or too hard or just can’t be done, take a deep breath and keep going anyway.
Let everybody behind you bark and keep going further.
