They aren’t there to help you.
They exist to take away value from what you are creating.
They come in many forms (too many to list).
Really they should be called “Distractors” because their goal is to get under your skin and shift your focus from what you are doing to anything else.
Anything that stops you from generating value, breaking down walls and disrupting the norm.
They are hard to spot, but we all have them.
And the only way to stop them is to keep doing what you’re doing because what you’re doing is the path to change that the Detractors are not willing to take but they are willing to make it as hard for you as possible to achieve.
