About a week ago, a guy on Instagram told me that I needed some fiber to go with the picture of the 10 scrambled eggs I was readying myself to eat.
I asked him why?
He says, “It’s the only proven way to have a BM.”
To which I replied: “Then how is it that newborn babies shit? They don’t eat any fiber and they are relieving their bowels just fine.”
“I have children,” he barked. “Now let’s have a rational discussion, shall we?”
Said person then proceeds, with not an additional word from me, to tell me how great my products are but that I exaggerate and embellish, and that EVERYONE hates me.”
I looked at his account and noted he has 29 followers. While doing so he throws more rotten eggs my way, and boy did they have a stench. I did the only rational thing at this point, which was to block him.
The truth is that EVERYONE on the face of the earth has people who hate him. And the more successful you are, the more hate there is. ’tis the way it goes and it’s important to accept this as part of living.
Here’s one of the main reasons to enjoy the hate…
At almost the same time that someone spews vitriol, you can count on there being an equal amount of love coming your way, and oftentimes it’s a delightful downpour.
Shown below are some recent examples of love coming my way that prove there’s no need for me to exaggerate or embellish anything:
I know that you probably get this daily but I wanted to tell you that your Theatre of the Mind process has literally transformed my life and is nothing short of miraculous. So I just wanted to drop you a line and say thank you. That’s all. Just thank you.
Just wanted to extend a huge thank you to you for fixing my elbow tendonitis that has plagued me for more than 3 years. Its taken 4 months to repair with your exercises but I can happily say the tendonitis is GONE! I have been to physios, and occupational therapists, and spoken at length with pharmacists and of all the methods they gave me which I used for 18 months did nothing to solve the issue. My elbows where so bad I couldn’t use my longbows or even operate a hand drill for very long. Now 4 months of your exercises (and applying NONE of the previous advice I was given from many professional) and my tendons are now lethal weapons with no weaknesses. I used no medication and didn’t even use anti inflammatory rubs, just your exercises.
I call the routine “Drunken Master” as they remind me of many of the techniques Jackie Chan display in that fantastic movie, and my kids (10 and 8) also do the exercises with me.
Thanks, you are a legend!
So you see, truth IS better than fiction and it’s not a bad thing to have haters because there’s always an equal or greater amount of good. Look for it, find it and focus on it.
Then go out and Kick Azz.
