10 years ago when I first heard the phrase: If people arent criticising you, you arent doing enough.

I laughed at it. 


Yet when I first did sales door to door back in University this all changed. 


One day I went up to this blue door and this huge man answered who was clearly having a bad day. Lets call him Bob.

Bob

When I asked if he was interested in giving to charity he replied with: 

You need to get off my doorstep, do you think I have any F*** money? Who do you think you are doing this? F*** off

*****

I was shocked!

I couldnt believe that someone would say something like this to me. 

Yet when I asked my leader Vlad at the time he shared that there will always be Bobs in life. 

VladBob

In 5 years time Bob will still be angry, be slightly fatter and have the same attitude. You cant change Bob, but you can change how you respond.

When I heard this I realised that I had allowed this interaction with Bob to ruin my day. I was unhappy, stressed and upset. 

Bob

Dont let other peoples attitude and their response stop you from having the impact you want to have in the world. 

Now whenever I speak internationally, connect online with other entrepreneurs or even receive comments from people on youtube. I think of Bob. 

Bob

As you start to have more of an impact youll meet more Bobs, keep your state and remember Bob will always be Bob dont let him get you down!

Bob, BobBob,
