In this world people will throw stones in your path. That’s a guarantee. They will try and derail you, set you off course, and distract you away from your goals. That’s no secret. HOWEVER, they don’t succeed unless you let them. They will throw the stones, but the choice on how to use those stones is 100% completely up to you. You are the author of your own book. Don’t allow someone else to dictate how you write it. Build a wall and cut them out, or build a bridge and help them over.
