This week’s question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions
for Life” comes from Alex.
The short answer is:
No, you’re not selfish.
Let me explain.
The definition of selfish is to force others to live the life you want to live. Unless you’re taking away someone else’s right to choose, you’re not being selfish by building your own business.
What’s really happening is this:
When you change and grow, you force the people in your life to adapt to your changes. Your growth highlights where they are not growing and makes them very uncomfortable.
This in turn translates to one of two things.
Either they support your growth.
They don’t support your growth.
It sounds like the people in your life who are calling you selfish are uncomfortable with your growth and passion.
You may want to re-evaluate your relationship with them, accept them for who THEY are, and make a choice based on what you want for your life.
It’s not a myth that you are a product of the 5 closest people in your life.
