I refuse your reality and substitute my own – the secret to personal progress
If you are curious, have the courage, and would like to make progress professionally, you will bump into many folks who have no interest or intention to helping you. This may be your boss, team leader, or other people with a lot of influence. The only secret there is about making progress anyway is to ignore the negative nay sayers.
Ignore the living daylights out of those people’s opinions and assertions. They should get out of the way of people like you who keep doing what they say cannot be done. Substitute their reality with your own and totally crush it.
