The Ability To Ignore

I'm sure there is something inherent to dislike,
About someone who achieves in the midst of naysayers.
Perhaps it is some degree of notoriety,
Unexpected by those projecting their negativity...
That occurs.
With cast iron balls undetected!
And nerves of steel unsuspected.

There is a purpose and reason for everything.
And if a nitpicking done gets one out of the house...
Someone eventually benefits from it.
Hopefully the ability to ignore...
And a process of knowing 'when' to do this,
Becomes prioritized and perfected.
