You want to do something that has never been done before and impress people around you?
I feel really sorry for you because it is not going to work and the worst case is, you’ll feel like you are not good enough.
So, don’t let that happen to you.
I’m not telling you that you can’t make a difference or change the world. You definitely can, but the problem is you should not worry too much about what others think about your work.
If you really want to make a change, you should do what you love. You do not have to do what everybody loves.
Yes, of course, people are going to disapprove and hate your work. Criticism is coming. Don’t worry, it happens to everybody, especially to successful people.
That is why I told you that you’ll never be able to satisfy everybody. At least you can’t please everybody in your family. So, the best way is, understanding how the world works and say, “It is OK” or “No Problem.”
It Takes Time
It takes time. So, you need to stay calm and have patience. That is the best answer to all the rejections and criticisms that come your way.
Have you seen Tesla’s new electric pickup truck, also known as the Cybertruck?
When Tesla CEO Elon Musk was unveiling it for the first time, I thought it is ugly, and its shatterproof glass demonstration did not go well. So, my first impression is, this is a horrible product, and people will not buy this.
I do not drive a Tesla, but I really love the company’s view, its products, and Elon’s presentations.
People have gone crazy about Cybertrcuk like me and criticized so badly. But, Elon tweets that 146 000 people have preordered Cybertruck within 48 hours, which means 14.6 million USD within the first 48 hours.
146k Cybertruck orders so far, with 42% choosing dual, 41% tri & 17% single motor

That is crazy, right?.
Most probably preordered customers have to wait until 2022 to have it. They are OK with that.
I still think Cybertuck is ugly, but when I read a lot more about it and compare it with the other Pickup trucks, I think it is good, and now I feel like Cybertruck could be the best electric Pickup truck in 2022.
I believe that got my point. Do your thing and deliver the best as you can. No matter what, haters going to hate, but at least a few see what you are doing.
It takes time. So, don’t worry.
My Work Is For Me
Let me tell you how I practice this.
I write anything I want on my blog, and it is definitely not for everyone. I have already mentioned that several times that I write for myself.
I know my English and writings are not good, but I’m still writing because I wanna write.
I do not care what people think about me now. A few years back, I was struggling to write what I want and not comfortable using my original words. I also tried to soothe people with my work and wanted them to accept me through my articles.
Then I realized that is not going to happen, ever. When you’ve realized that, you have eaten a significant number of hours from your life and your energy.
Don’t even think what others think about when you reveal your true self.
Find What Works For You
We all need inspiration. Inspirational work from experts in the field will help you to find your true self and your inner voice.
So, trying a few ways from experts is not a bad idea. You must not replicate or copy work from the experts.
Even if it seems like work pretty great, it is definitely short-term. It’ll work until people find out that you are a fraud. So, work for long-term success.
If we take blogging, I always try to think like how expert bloggers think, but I never steal their work or writing patterns.
This is me writing and it is good enough for me.
This is not only for writing. You can apply this to anything you want to do. Find what works for you.
