Haters gonna hate and demeaners gonna demean.
The moment you truly choose to be a high performer and consistently select behaviours that sustain your wellbeing, fuel your vitality and enhance your clarity expect demeaners to come out of the woodwork.
You will find demeaners giving their two cents when you:
- Turn down drinking at a function because you prioritise your clarity of thought
- Leave a professional dinner early because you value how you show up the next day
- Pass on dessert because your energy and vitality are two of your greatest long term assets
Shame is the demeaner’s favourite weapon but it’s usually coated in witticisms, platitudes and memes that are designed to hide their belittling intent while coaxing bystanders to join them in ‘havin’ a laugh.’
The more consistent you are at embodying your high performer identity, the stronger the demeaner’s need to shame you. This is because your high road behaviour holds up a mirror to them and they don’t like what they see. Your commitment is a reminder of their own inability to step up.
As you fly faster towards a life of financial, emotional and physical freedom, let haters hate and demeaners demean. Send them love and compassion from up above – the higher road is a heck of a lot more enjoyable than the lower path.
