Public Service Announcement from the true Mike Schiemer: You can't please everyone, so stop trying. I was a people pleaser most of my life until maybe 6 years ago. 

I would bend over backwards for anyone and everyone. I would make myself mentally and physically ill (with less to show for it financially than I wanted) trying to impress others or help others, when I couldn't really help myself. 

I really don't know why so many people are so negative and critical. People laughed at me and criticized when I was a personal trainer, when I was a financial agent, when I was a digital marketer, an SEO professional, and affiliate / network marketer. I was laughed at when I was poor, laughed at when I moved up to middle class quickly, and put down when I became upper middle class with a net worth of $1 million. 

You just can't win if you focus on the feedback of others that are not supportive. You can't live like that. You can't help everyone, and you definitely can't help too many people until you get yourself on track. All you can do sometimes is keep your side of the street clean and work hard. 

You have to take risks, strive for success (whatever that means to you, it is subjective), and do your best. Do it for yourself and your family. Don't do it for others that want to see you fail so they can briefly feel better about themselves for their own failures and what they settled for.
