He wrote a blog post and shared it on Facebook. People criticized him for his worldview.
He made a vlog and shared it on Facebook. People, again, criticized his worldview.
And the funny thing is that, these people who love to criticize are those who haven’t created anything meaningful. They don’t have creations to share. They don’t have something to say. And even if they have, they don’t have the guts to ship.
So they keep themselves busy correcting others or finding flaws or promoting their opinions, which they think are better.
Now, there’s this speaker known as “MR. Speaks.”
He vlogs mostly about relationships and post them on Facebook. I love his confidence and his perspective on life. Sometimes I resonate. Sometimes I don’t. But that’s it. That’s the way it works.
The problem is, some people can’t stand other people’s perspectives. They failed to realize that it’s just about sharing worldviews: “Hey, this is how I see it. How about you?”
The goal is to share thoughts and start a discussion for growth and learning.
I understand where these people are coming from: They want to correct the content creator, because for them, the creator’s messages are misleading. Fair enough.
If you’re one of these people, I beg you to answer these questions:
Have you taken time to contemplate why they have that belief and how they got that perspective? Have you taken time to read everything they write or hear everything they say or read their biographies? Have you taken the time to understand, rather than trying to be right?
You haven’t, I suppose.
So please, if you find someone with a twisted perspective on business or career or relationships or even life, stop for a while and ask yourself those questions. Because most of the time, you just want to prove you’re right and others are wrong.
In this generation, self-awareness is indispensable.
