They may think you’re crazy
And that is 100% okay
So DJ Khaled, in my mind, is a genius.
Everything about the “They” theory is on point. Need a refresher?
“They don’t want you to win”
“They kick you when you’re down, but they wanna kick it when you’re up.”
“Stay focused and secure your bag, because they want you to fail and they don’t want us to win.”
“The key is to enjoy life, because they don’t want you to enjoy life.”
And we can go on and on with legendary “they” quotes. Point is, you have to do for self. You have to look out for you.
In these days and times, we are being programmed to look at other people, compare our loses to their highlights and get instantly sad, mad and jealous. Then we question our aim, goals, and trajectory. This is a fail. We must stay ferociously focused on our lives, on our vision and stay the course.
They = anyone who isn’t you. Furthermore, they often equal a hater. Whats so unique about a hater is, there will be times when they are wearing camouflage and they are deceiving us. A hater may be a family member, a friend, a lover. We have life goals right now. Any negative energy put towards us at this moment could be very harmful to our mission. Thus, we have to be on the lookout.
What makes a person crazy? What, that they are misunderstood? That their peers don’t quite get the reasoning behind their motives and actions? If we are competing with people we don’t know for reasons we can’t explain, well, that is crazy in a negative sense. Now, on the other hand, zoning in on all positive habits and procedures, taking one step after another on the path to personal success, with no regard for what other people are doing or what they think about us that type of crazy is marvelous. And what makes that person in search of personal success crazy is that they begin to disregard what isn’t going to help push the needle forward. They begin to ignore others, they zig when others zag and that brings a misunderstanding. That brings the hate.
“People fear what they don’t understand, hate what they can’t conquer” -Nas
Let them think you’re crazy. Go off and handle your business! Frankly, its no need to give a fuck what people think if they are going to bring you down. The major key is to work on yourself, consistently up your quality of work and zone in at all times.
They don’t want you to acheive your goals, so achieve your goals.
