Bullseye on Your Back – Water Cooler Chats Gone Wild * Gossip vs Growth! #83

Success. We all strive for it whether it be small feats of fab or incredible achievements in work and life. We constantly change goals, morph ourselves into different levels and strive to stand out.

Often our biggest challenge is the little voice in our heads.

What about when your voice is quieted by another louder voice – at the watercooler – when you’re not present.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a co-worker, another professional in your field or someone you used to consider a friend who speaks badly about you or creates problems for a successful person – it hurts.

You are human, so how do you cope with gossip?
You are a friend, so how do you support your friends going through the attack?

“We begin with a quote:  People will always attempt to diminish you or your success if they are unsuccessful, jealous or insecure. Keep that in perspective. Drama is best left to those who create it, who live for it and who will ultimately fall on their own sword.”  ~Kelly Mitchell
