Throw it Over Your Shoulder, and…

What’s up guys, it’s Paige Starks the Enlightener here!

Can I ask you something..

Why do you care so much about opinions?

Seriously, it’s gotten to the point where it has SNATCHED you from your MAIN focus. If your MISSION in life is to be successful, that’s where your MIND should be at all times. You can’t ALLOW what people say to DISTRACT you from your initial goal(s). Take a look at some of the BEST influencers of the world. Do you think they gave a hoot about any of the people who disagreed with their PURPOSE? Heck no! Instead, they stayed FOCUSED, and kept WORKING HARD.

This is what you MUST do if you ever expect more of your success. Half of the time, people who want success end up failing, because they don’t TRUST their intuitions, and adhere to what other people have to say. When will we understand that people are just critics? Nothing “They” say, or write should DEFLATE your CHARACTER or PURPOSE. If you aspire to CHANGE things in this world, your STRENGTH level can’t be WEAK!

That’s just like having countless FAILURES, and because of it, you GIVE UP! TOUGH SKIN results in VICTORY! Do you remember in grade school where there was ONE out of MANY students who didn’t like you? Back then you didn’t understand what they had against you, but if you could tell your younger self something you know now, what would it be? HATERS DO EXIST! Real talk.

They’ve been trailing behind you since your youngster years. Hmm.. shouldn’t this tell you something. Everything that you’ve ever worked for, is something that other people are STARVING to reach. STOP being sidetracked of your SUCCESS! FOCUS on what’s important and keep PUSHING! Your time is too VALUABLE to barged down by nonsense! There is a GIFT inside of you that people just can’t HANDLE!

It’s time to STOP playing games, and get serious about your FUTURE. You were placed on this earth to accomplish many things, and if you’re WORRIED too much about the WRONG things, your chances of being successful is SLIM to NONE! This is the TRUTH that most won’t accept, because it’s too HARSH to realize! Nowhere around the word SUCCESS is SOFT. So expect some HARDSHIPS along the way.

Just keeping it #1,000..

I remember this part of my life, like it was yesterday; Each morning I’d get up and email different magazine editors, pertaining to a featured page of myself. Although, I didn’t get the responses I wanted right away, I never STOPPED the ACTION of making sure those emails were sent out! I kept this up for months — never got discouraged because I was DETERMINED to make something happen. Yes, I got scratched up within the process, but my EFFORT never ceased! That’s when OPPORTUNITY opened wide for me.

This is what I want you to understand. No matter how HARD the trials get towards your success, NEVER STOP GRINDING! Don’t let ANYTHING HINDER you from being all that you can be in life! You hold yourself ACCOUNTABLE for the types of VICTORIES you’re willing to overcome. Remember that, and learn to hang tight even in the midst of a storm, because eventually it will PASS!

Be humble..

Know that I love you, and pray for nothing but the best! Understand that you’re more than a conqueror, and that your life’s adversities don’t even compare to your character!

Blessings & Peace,
