Doing IM to prove people wrong is pointless

I see a lot of people doing IM and trying to be successful at it because they want to prove people wrong.

But what I have found is that even if you do become successful in IM, or anything for that matter, those same people are still going to try and demotivate you anyway. There opinions are going to remain the same.

In short, I think we should do IM for ourselves and not for other people because it's pointless trying to show someone up who doesn't even really care what you do....

    Very true and making money will always say more than anything else. It can often take years to become successful anyways and by then, most people will have either forgot about it, moved on to something new, or joined under you

    I don't personally know anyone doing IM to prove others wrong. Wrong how? Why would you have people around you who are trying to demotivate you? And why would you listen to them?

    I think it's kinda childish to do something to prove others wrong and IM is not a child's game.

    Why would someone learn, implement, go through tons of ups & downs in IM to prove someone wrong?
    It's like saying I am in job or any offline business to prove people wrong...

    If you have people in your life who you're trying to prove wrong, my advise: Let go of them
    They're nothing more than weight and would always pull you down.

    Doing virtually anything JUST to prove someone wrong is pointless.

    Once you've proven them wrong, you have made your point.

    That's the victory you should aim for instead of GETTING THEM TO LIKE YOU.

    Aim for the satisfaction of proving them wrong.

    That's the reward.

    Getting them to like you is NOT the reward.

    In fact, their CRITICISM only BENEFITS YOU.

    Their HATE only makes you STRONGER.

    Most people doubt that IM even work who I talk to. "If it would work, everyone would do it" is one of the more common ones i hear. I just stand there and agrees

    From my experience, I believe it holds true

      If you are doing ANYTHING in life only to "prove them wrong" - you need to get a grip.

      Fact: People don't think about you - or watch you - or even notice you - nearly as much as you think they do.

    Nobody really cares what you do, if you focus on that you're only going to end up miserable.

    Just try to help people out and you'll do alright

    Everybody has every right to earn bread and butter in a legit way. One should only focus on his or her own legit and honest ways to earn income and succeed in those ways. IM is just one of the thousands ways to earn an income.

    Working in the areas that you love is as important as becoming successful. Also, your journey never stops when you get success. You have to see that the success sustains with you.

    If any other thought touches your mind along this continuous process of success then that means either you are not loving what you are doing or you are not serious about what you are doing.

    I think it is more of a personal experience from Zodiax.
    But majority of IM'ers are doing it for money (of course), job or even personal interest.
    Proving people wrong is yeah pointless, focus more on aiming higher and success.
    And be an inspiration to others.
