Far too often we worry about what people will think of us or what we do. I am no different than anyone else. I would love it if everyone liked me; what I say, what I do, how I look, how I do things etc.
Reality is that not everyone will!
I got to experience this life lesson over the 2 days while I was an exhibitor at the Live The Smart Way Expo this weekend. Even though the wellness expo attracted like-minded people, it did not guarantee that those people would like any of what the vendors were offering as information, products or services.
To many people who attended the event, I may have seemed to be offering the most odd, or out of place product. To others, what I had to offer was the best thing ever.
I would like to share what I saw, heard and experienced during the expo. I actually wish I would have had hidden cameras to record all the various reactions to what was displayed in my booth.
In the sharing of these reactions I want you to put yourself in situations that you face on a daily basis where you interact with people. Hopefully these takes on the reactions will touch a cord for you and you will understand the importance of detaching yourself from the reactions of others.
Here is the summary of the span of reactions that I got when they reached my booth. Just to paint the picture a little clearer, I was between and in front of booths promoting incredibly yummy food. My booth focused on the health of women’s pelvic floor and vagina. YES… I had the vSculpt on display, font and center on the booth’s table. I also had videos playing with a gynecologist and sexologist talking freely about everything from healing incontinence to having great sex.
OMG what the … Is that what I think it is? Ignore….Ignore….Ignore…. Just keep walking by fast and this lady will not have a chance to talk to me!!
What is this?
Are you telling me that I can get rid of the pads and adult diapers I wear? Do you know how embarrassing and horrible it is to
pee yourself? I can’t laugh, cough or sneeze! I can’t exercise or jump without it being an issue!
How much is it? $$$. What? Woa! Ouch! I can’t spend that much….Give me a chance to do some research on what this is and what it claims. I need more time to think about it.
Please tell me more!
I am desperately seeking help on this and no one has been able to help me. My doctor just tells me to do Keegles or have surgery.
I have to buy this right now. You have no idea how my life will change if the results are what the research claims it will be! Thank you sooooooo much! You are my new BFF!
Everyone’s reaction is based on where they are in their journey. Love them for where they are and don’t give anyone permission to affect you negatively.
Know that you are awesome and that those who will thrive because of who you are, will. Don’t worry about the rest of them.
Be well inside and out!
