You see, sometimes the opposition that you get has nothing to do with you per se, but it has everything to do with how you are making other people feel because you are doing what they have not had the fortitude to do in their own lives.
So, if you are ready to take on the backlash and if you are ready to go to the next level, and if you are ready to push past the obstacles, then go for it, but be forewarned.
Some people are not going to like you, and that just comes with the territory of advancing.
As you advance to the next level, some people will want you to stay the same because they're not willing to change. Don't stay with them. Go where you're supposed to go because you'll eventually find people who are like you.
They are rare, though. But for your sake and for your destiny’s sake you need to go on because the people who are jealous of you are - more likely than not - never going to be happy with you for going forward. They want you small and immature.
And then when you stay small, they make fun of you for staying small. Then, when you decide to get big, they make fun of you and ostracize you for being big.
So why listen to them? Whether you do, or whether you don't, they will still have something to say so move on forward!
