Yes, you read right. If you are that person who rolls your eyes every time the “Kardashians” are mentioned or worse yet, if you admit you “hate” them, you are the problem in America. I have yet to hear a good answer when I ask people, “why do you hate the Kardashians?” They answer, “because they just want to be famous!” “because they have no talent!” or because “they are trashy whores!” Huh? Do people actually hear themselves? You HATE another human being because you believe they have no talent? When I ask people to give me a real, educated answer, they never can. That’s because they don’t even know why they hate them so much. So let me enlighten you. If you hate the Kardashians, you really hate yourself. You hate the fact that they are beautiful and you are not. You hate the fact you have to work at a job in which you are miserable. You hate the fact there are people out there making an enormous amount of money, what seems to be, in a very easy fashion. You hate the fact there are people who fly private planes, eat at the finest restaurants, are able to spend millions on their parties, and who can afford pretty much anything they want. And truth be told, you can’t. By the way people react to the Kardashians, you would think they are drug lords, or better yet, that they kill puppies and children.
Do they like fame? Yes. Do they enjoy a lavish lifestyle? Yes. Was their rise to fame seamlessly easy? Yes. Yet, none of those reasons are good enough to HATE another human being. I am very passionate about this subject for several reasons. First because I noticed that with the rise of social media, so did the rise of spewing hatred. People have no issue spreading hate on social media, cowardly, in the comfort of their own home. They would never have the guts to say any of these things to people’s faces, but have no issue typing away insults. Secondly, our mentality in the States is all wrong in regards to work. I know this very well because I used to think the same way. I will never forget a class I took in college where the teacher was asking whether or not the class respected prostitutes. “Of course not!” I firmly answered. “I work my butt off working 3 jobs while getting my master’s degree and all they do is spread their legs and get paid!” So my college professor asked me a question, “Connie, what if I had gorgeous hair, and all I did for a living was cut my hair and made tons of money by selling my lustrous, gorgeous locks. Would you respect me?” Without missing a beat I said, “No!” to which my professor responded with something that has stayed with me for years, “then you, my dear, are a Puritan!” Although profound, at the time that statement did not have the impact that it did years later while on my Personal Development journey.
I have read extraordinary books from extremely successful people: Napoleon Hill, Jack Canfield, Alan Cohen, Marianne Williamson, Eric Butterworth, Wallace Wattles, Robert Kiyosaki, and T. Harv Eker, just to name a few. Although said in various ways, their message is the same. It does not benefit us to envy and hate the rich. If we wish to be successful and wealthy, we must bless those that are already there.
My mentor, Alan Cohen’s motto is, “let it be easy”. As I already mentioned, this was a new concept for me. I grew up believing you had to work hard for your money, and that if you didn’t, you somehow cheated and were not respectable! It wasn’t until he enlightened me on the fact that if we have the mindset that we must work really hard in order to attain anything, that we will attract hard experiences. Our mind is very powerful. However, if we truly believe that life can be easy, and that it’s perfectly respectable to have an easier life, we will attract those experiences. Make no mistake, “easy” does not mean “lazy”. I am merely suggesting that we ease up on ourselves and stop making everything harder than it has to be. Remember, our mind is very powerful, if we expect things to be hard, make no mistake, they will be. I certainly don’t believe that life should only be rainbows and unicorns; that is neither realistic nor beneficial. I am a firm believer that challenges in life are necessary for us to grow.
Don’t get me wrong, I have a deep respect for people who work hard. I am still one of them since my programming from childhood is “you must work hard in order to make money”. Although I understand the concept of “let it be easy” on an intellectual level, I am still working on my subconscious to believe it. I actually do believe the Kardashians work hard since they are involved in several projects. No, they don’t work in construction, so it’s not that type of “hard”. Yes, all the projects they are involved in are fun and things they love to do: modeling, fashion, social media, appearances, star in their own reality show, etc. Is there something wrong doing what you love and making tons of money from it? So they originally got famous because Kim’s boyfriend leaked their sex video. Get over it! Many people have sex tapes out there and if they were ever leaked, it would probably have the opposite effect than Kim’s did. Anyway, that was years ago and the fact that they have remained famous is testimony to how smart and brilliant they are as business women. Sorry, you can’t deny that! They saw an opportunity and took advantage of it. I wish we were all that business savvy!
Something I often see the Internet trolls write on the Kardashians’ social media is, “stop being so greedy and give your money to charity!” My first question is, how do you know they don’t? (by the way, they do). Secondly, who are you to tell people how to spend their money? What are YOU doing for the poor? And don’t tell me you don’t have money to give to the poor. Most CAN give to the poor. Every single penny counts. But if you truly can’t, you can certainly give your time and volunteer. Even if only for a few hours a month. Whatever you can do, counts. I am tired of hearing that the rich and successful must be in charge of helping everyone else while others just sit and complain without doing ANYTHING TO HELP. Plus they have the nerve to be on social media all day and insult those who are successful. They are wasting their life. It is crucial to give, whether it be time or money, to others in need no matter how much you are making.
Stop hating people you have NEVER EVEN MET! Those that have met the Kardashian-Jenner family, have nothing but great things to say about them. I hear they are ambitious, driven, professional, sweet and very polite. You don’t personally know them, thus, you can’t speak about their character. Stop hating the rich, beautiful and successful. Get out there and BECOME rich and successful! Get off of social media where you envy others and spread hatred, and READ books on how to become rich by doing what you love. Go to personal development seminars. Hire a coach. Make a difference in the world. Do what you love and serve humanity. Stop waiting on the government to help you, stop waiting for ANYONE to help and help YOURSELF! Most importantly, stop the hate. There is so much going on in this world that needs our immediate attention. We need to be beacons of light, not darkness. Let’s spread love and light. Let’s stop bringing people down. Stop being so judgmental. What you say about another human being is never an indication on their character; it’s only an indication on your character. If you are constantly criticizing others, rest assure there is inner turmoil that you must deal with. Hurt people, hurt people. Truly successful and happy people do not criticize others. They do not spew hatred and do not bring others down. They want everyone to be happy and successful. This still doesn’t change your mind? That’s fine. Keep on hating.
