Along our positive path of personal development we often outgrow the relationships and opinions of others that we perhaps at one time valued. When we are immersed in this body of knowledge and apply it in our life, our results change. They must. And just like we have that internal battle at first, our ego calling us to get back in our comfort zone, once conquered we often begin to experience that battle in the outer world.
Friends and relatives will definitely notice our improvement then often will move to criticism of whatever it is we are involved in. Often this is rooted in jealousy and their own insecurity. They want you to remain where they are, in their comfort zone.
I'm sure we have all heard the phrase 'misery loves company.' Well that's what's happening here! You're being ridiculed for moving toward your dream life. The key word here is YOUR dream life not that of the other toxic person who is trying to bring you down.
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer said, "The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about."
Don't let anyone else try to stop you from living the life you would love to live; your dream and your destiny. Smile and walk away. Allow your success and prosperity to be your rebuttal. Let them remain ignorant if they choose to, you know better. At least you will once you listen to today's episode!
