Find your cheer leaders

  • by

We all have people in our lives who think we’re wonderful. Some of us even have Cocker Spaniels who think we are beyond wonderful! Many more of you have children under 10!! Many of you have pupils and students. Some of you have fans, faithful followers and even fanatics.

It’s great to spend time with these cheerleaders – they hang on to your every word, believe everything you say and trust you can do anything and do what they can to support you.

These are the people who listen you big. These are the people who forgive you anything, who encourage you, who have confidence in you. These are the people who love you. These are the people who want you to succeed in life. They make life fun.

And there are the others …

Paper never refused ink ..

Critics are ten a penny ..

There have always been those who don’t understand you, who don’t take the time to listen to you, who judge and criticize you, who are jealous or resentful of you, who distrust you.

These are the people who listen you small, who hold you back, who make you doubt yourself. These people are not interested in empowering you.

It’s not so good to spend much time with the naysayers. They make life hard work.

We all know what the world is like.

We have seen and heard the good stuff and the bad stuff;

The great stuff and the terrible stuff;

The encouraging stuff and the discouraging stuff;

The supportive stuff and the critical stuff;

The dangerous stuff and the exciting stuff.

It’s all out there.

However, it’s what’s ‘in here’ that matters.

What’s ‘in here’ will show up ‘out there’.

What you send out, comes back.

Life is a mirror.

So really, who do you listen to?

What/who do you believe?

That’s the choice we all have.

If you are determined to succeed, and listen to the cheerleaders, success is inevitable.

If you are determined to fail, and listen to the naysayers, failure is inevitable.

If you are determined to succeed yet listen to the naysayers, your success will be impeded.

If you are determined to fail yet listen to the cheerleaders, you are in with a chance to succeed.

So, really, who do you listen to?

That’s the choice we all have.

In the end of the day – people will say what they say.

What you do with what they say – is up to you.

Be cheered on ..

Be held back ..

If you are running a marathon, who’s voice do you really want in your ear at the outset.. ? As the approach the halfway mark..? As you approach the finishing line.. ?

Be your own best cheerleader.

Be the cheerleader between your ears.

Cheer yourself on.

You might aswell.

It’s your race.

And if you’re struggling, get a Cocker Spaniel.
