This has been one of the hardest things in growing my business. I love that @markmansonnet drops this #truthbomb in his book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” — which is really just about only giving an F about what REALLY matters to you and not the BS. Anyways, back to the quote, if you want to do something big, chances are it’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea. You have to give up being LIKED by all if you really want to be truly LOVED by your person/people/tribe. You dilute yourself by trying to be everyone’s favorite flavor and you actually lose that unique spice that makes people love you, connect with you and inspired by YOU. You have to breathe through people making fun of you, hey — even saying some mean things to you, in the pursuit of what your heart feels called to share with the world. Let them laugh, let them hate and you just keep those eyes focused on the people you can help and the change you can make in this world. I know that’s what helps me through the days, that and flexing my not giving a F muscle — it’s not easy all the time but then again every time I put myself out there and get a comment or a message about how it hit home with even one person, helped one of you guys — that muscle doubles in size. When you know what you TRULY care about, it becomes easier to release caring about the stuff that really doesn’t rank. Go big, shine bright — go for LOVE, you weren’t made to settle for like. xo, C ✨#LightMaker
