Is Being Kind Hearted the same as being Weak willed?

Aggressive people or people with dominate personalities, look at kindhearted people as weak. But that's far from the truth.
Being kindhearted is wanting the best for someone and working hard to help those who need you, reach their goals. Enabling them to succeed may mean having to say no. Being weak willed would be the opposite, by giving someone everything they need, even if that meant enabling them to fail.They are two very different scenarios with completely opposite intentions.
Kindhearted people look out for others feelings when dealing with a situation. They can get their point across without yelling and screaming and cussing somebody out. Being nice and kindhearted without going overboard is fine, but when you are so kind you let people run over ya, then yea, it's definitely time to quit being so kind.
Now how does this relate to building a successful business?
Once the excitement of joining a new program has worn off and the real work begins it is easy to become discouraged. So what should you do?
Take a realistic look at your expectations.
  • Do not expect it to be easy, like “falling off a log.”
  • Do not absorb other peoples negative opinions and let them become your own.
  • Do not become discouraged and quit growing, because if you do you will lose out on all the work you have done and the seeds you have planted will never have a chance to take root and grow. Instead you will become like a tumble weed tossed to and fro. 
You will become weak willed and easily swayed by others who are looking for the easy pot of gold at the end of some rainbow. The next mlm company or 5 other mlm companies always searching but never quite succeeding... Jumping from one program to another but never really succeeding at any of them because they never stayed around long enough or did what was necessary to reap the harvest of their field.
And if you allow your kindheartedness to turn you into being weak willed, well then you will find yourself far away from your goals and wondering how you got there.'s like horse shoes n hand comparison. I am very kind hearted and I have an iron will. Some would like us to believe that they are the same but I think not! Being kindhearted makes one a better person.
The world needs a lot more kindness these days.

  1. What an AWESOME post! Very right on Connie there comes a time when you need to let go of the tirekickers, they will bring you down. There is a time for sweet and a time for serious.

    You are SO right when you mention these points it's very important to not let yourself get mowed over just in the name of being "nice".

    Stand up for yourself and for your team
    don't feel "obligated" to join every venture that is thrown at you just because it's a "friend". If it looks good well then fine but use your own judgement and be the hunted not the hunter basically begging people to get into your business.

    Bravo Connie, great subject!

  2. You use your head, Connie, and your heart shines through!

    Thank you for what you do.
    Our new friendship means a lot to me, and your honesty is a breath of fresh air!
