Tune Out The Naysayers… And Start Crushin’ It!

 by Kary Rogney

It happens every once in a while. I have friends who ask me to go hang out or go to the movies. I usually tell them I’m working on some online projects and don’t have time right now. And usually what follows is bunch of complaining about being online too much and that I should get a life…

I couldn’t help but laugh to myself! I’m completely doing what I love to do and having the time of my life. I hang with people that are like-minded and have goals to accomplish great things. And we all are about having a good time… but I’m also all about Crushin’ It!

I call them the “Naysayers”… And have stopped having anything to do with them. Not that I don’t like them. I just don’t have anything in common with them at this point. Here’s what Merrium Webster definition says.

Definition of NAYSAYER
: one who denies, refuses, opposes, or is skeptical or cynical about something
nay–say·ing\-ˌsā-iŋ\  noun

Examples of NAYSAYER
  1. There are always naysayers who say it can't be done.
  2. <those naysayers who attack the integrity of the entire judicial system>
First Known Use of NAYSAYER
Related to NAYSAYER

I’ve been told to look at the top 5 people who I interact with on a regular basis and look at their average income. That will statistically influence and determine my own income. Hmmmmm  That quickly becomes a no-brainer!

Gary Vanyerchuk was right on when he coined that phrase… when you’re “Crushin’ It” you are passionate about what you’re doing and you’re working your tail off! I’m not looking for an easy ride or a hand out. It takes a massive amount of sweat equity to build a brand and business today… especially if you’re not rolling in the dough right out of the gate.

Social media is totally changing the way business is being done and will be done… we see it all over the news! Now is the time to work hard and smart to establish brand equity within your niche… so STOP listening to others when they tell you to ‘chill’.

If we look deep at the main reason these ‘friends’ are telling us this is because what you’re doing magnifies the lack of passion they have for what they are doing… but don’t let them drag you down with them!

Keep Crushin’ It!

    Hi Kary,

    this is an amazing book. Thanks for recommending it to your readers.

    Apart from that, the best thing you can do for yourself – you owe to yourself – is to stay away from naysayers.

    Thanks for sharing your insights.

    Take care

    Crush it absolutely rocks. I wish more people realized that with the skills that you are talking about daily, you truly can talk about what really drives you and actually make a significant living doing it. It doesn’t matter if you are passionate about stickers, yoga, painting, singing, volleyball or whatever…there are tons of other people out there looking for quality information on that subject.
    And guess what? You get a chance to work with people that are also passionate about your niche…

    Nice work Kary

    Also we have to be ten times more mentally tough when we work online. The people who are successful sound enthusiastic on the phone, but once they are off the phone they are not in our face more than two times a year. Here is how to overcome that obstacle. We must begin with the end in mind and visualize the end result. Lets say we want to have a brand new car. For example a Jaguar. We want to know what color is it, what type of seats you want to have, do you want to have a DVD player in it? It should feel luxuirous. We have to print out from the internet a photo of our car and see ourselves driving in it. NO Negatives.

    This is how my good friend and Mentor Michael Dlouhy did it.

    WOW..,isn’t that the truth! Thanksgiving for us is seeing family that we see about once a year. And that’s a good thing. he,he Keeping true to God and his purpose for your life is really what it’s all about! If you are standing around the wrong people, you may need to shake the dust off your feet and find new friends in order for you to move forward.
    Thanks for this post, Kary!

    Hey Kary, I have been hearing about this book a lot. I should get it tomorrow and thanks for your tip. Please check out my blog and give me your feedback. I shall retweet and share this blog post. God bless

    There are so many loving friends and family out there who are afraid of seeing you (me, us) succeed at this dream endeavor called network marketing. They love us so much, they bring us down so they can feel safe.
    Like the bucket of crabs story.
    Choosing to hang out with the successful people who have the same success focus is the right advice!

    Aloha Kary,

    Thank you for the summary on Crush It! I love Gary and his special way of saying things. You are so right though, when you do what you love and you love what you do, everything else flows into your life!

    Much aloha,
    Kellie :)

    Hi Kary!

    Fantastic book! I truly loved it when I read it the first time and then even more the second time. I know that when I’m working within my passion, doing what I’m good at, being totally authentically myself stuff flows, I have fun, and I stretch my comfort zone.

    Great post and video!

    Hey Man! I like what you had to say about the naysayers! I have been doing what they told me I couldnt all my life. They said I would never become a police officer, well I did. They said I could not make it in the wrecker service, I did that for ten years, They told me I could never get enough experience to become a air medical pilot, I am doing that now! And yes, still trying to keep Nick out of trouble! Kenny

    Great stuff Kary!

    It is ALL about crushing it. Most people when they think of us, they think of us entrepreneurs are crazy misfits. I mean, most of us will swear by not having a job but work 12 hours a day paycheck to paycheck on “one of those things” that are friends laugh at us about.

    But the funny thing is, once we start making it, they seem to forget the hard work they laughed at us so much about and tell us how lucky we are haha.

    You are absolutely Crushin’ It Kary, and when you’re friends think you should “chill”, it’s really sad news for them, because they haven’t found something they’re super passionate about!

    I’ve had many similar experiences, I’m sure as have many of your readers. Just like you said, it doesn’t make me love these people less, I just don’t really have time for them because our goals aren’t aligned.

    Glad to have friends like you! :)

    Whew! Have you ever said it! Around the holidays, it can be harder to seclude ourselves from naysaying family and friends–a great time to build the confidence muscles. I like the challenge. I like to stay in touch with them and let them be the ones to decide that they are giving up.

    Because…here’s the thing… :) we all know where the doubter comes from. He has played a role in every one of our lives, internally and externally. If someone is belligerent, I remain calm, tell them I completely understand where they are coming from, and “crush ‘em with kindness.”

    You see, when we don’t receive their negativity, it reflects back to its source–them, and they see that we are unaffected. THIS intrigues people (or ticks them off). Either way, I’ve conducted myself with integrity…and I can hope that their success is one step closer.

    :) Carrie

    p.s.–These muscles were first exercised by growing up around adults who abused alcohol and each other. It just didn’t make any sense, and I always wanted to find a better way, not only for me, but for them, too. Much love!

      So great to hear from you Carrie! You’ve
      learned a lot about this topic I can tell.
      Stay tough and focused and you’ll
      accomplish amazing things and help
      thousands in the process.

      Many blessings,

    Hey Kary,
    I haven’t read “Crush It” yet. But the last book you recommended was the go giver, and it was an awesome book so I will have to check this one out for sure.

    It does take a certain type of person to have the commitment and persistence it takes to build a business from scratch.

    Naysayers are INDEED everywhere. The tuning out is a challenge when it has to be done to family members and spouses. GREAT post Kary.

    Hi Kary!
    I’m glad I finally found my way to your blog! I’ve been here for a while this evening and am glad to have found this post! I’ve not read the book – YET. But, I will plan on picking up the book very soon!

    I’m guilty of too much of the crushin’ it and not taking enough time off to have fun. But this is my first year as a blogger, and that is to be expected! I am so thankful and blessed to be finally following my passion as I build my business. I want to see others experience the same passion and excitement about their life, too! The book will be a great resource for me to gain knowledge that will help with my health counseling business. :)
