Kiss you, kill you, be you

“They will either want to kiss you, kill you, or be you.” Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2

When I heard this the other night while watching the Hunger Games, it struck me. It made me think of running my own online business.

But it also made me think of other times in my life when I have created change. Whether I was learning yoga, changing the way I eat, or standing up for myself.

Whatever you are doing to create change there is always push back.  It feels like you are moving through this tight web of people.  And it is emotional, sometimes shitty, sometimes wonderful.

The thing is, that web of people are either kissers (loving, kind, super supportive), killers (downers, judgemental jargons, negative commentators), or Be-ers (followers, fans, motivators).

For some reason we tend to listen to the killers even though they make up 1/3 of the web.  We love the Kissers but they don’t usually help us grow.  It is the Be-ers we want.  We want the followers, the fans, the motivators because that is how we grow and share ourselves with the world.

So go out and find your Be-ers!  Nevermind the killers, turn and run.  And let the kissers, kiss you for god sake.
