The unreasonably common notion of success shaming has dominantly started to enter in our society where ridiculing and berating someone for their success based on assumptions and envious guilt has practically become habitual. The current usual mindset of shaming someone with a thought of “singling out” their opinions with criticism is rife. The surprising fact is, that, sometimes one is unaware of that guilt and envy in them, which has overshadowed their true sides. The one who casually comments, “I despise how easy it was for her to get money without working hard” would never deny the money won by the lottery.

Global Celebrity Life Coach, Myke Celis, popularly known as the Unicorn behind the highly popular international coaching brand, #BestMeEver,  talks about how success shaming and has unknowingly become a part of life. Myke says, “Nowadays with the rise in social media usage, people tend to be more critical about others as they continuously compare themselves and their space. On that note, even if a person posts about an achievement or a personal milestone in his life with good intentions, others are quick to judge and make that person feel bad for actually thriving in his space, based on how they perceive their space and the status quo.”

Celis as a professional, Certified Global Master Coach for Life Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming & Timeline Therapy is currently thriving as a global expert in self-empowerment to help people be comfortable with themselves and their success. As he focuses on the current issues of online bullying and success shaming, he mentions how it has drastically evoked changes in self-confidence where he strives to illuminate others with his experiences and mentoring to lead them to their own #BestMeEver. He says, “Don’t ever feel guilty for being successful because you deserve that success. The greatest disrespect you can do to yourself is to believe when others say that you are not deserving or that it shouldn’t be done. Your success and happiness are what matters most at the end of the day. It’s all about you.”

Currently, Myke has numerous coachees and mentees under his stable who are composed of celebrities, highly successful people and top executives from various parts of the world. With his experiential journey in coaching and mentoring countless people of different genders, age, cultures and races, he highlights the most common age group who strangle themselves with the idea of success shaming are teenagers who are constantly in the quest to secure high standards of swanky online life. Celis, the international best selling author of 5 inspirational titles explains, “Every single time I would give a talk to high school students, this issue comes out. Evidently, they are pressured because of what they see or notice in their usual surroundings. I always tell them to just focus on their journey,  redefine what success means to them and commit to themselves accordingly.

Myke Celis, who’s now making waves worldwide with his numerous speaking and coaching engagements,  believes celebrating success or accomplishments should not be a source of shame; in fact, it is the people who “choose” to see things with insecure perspectives who should rethink their ways. He further emphasizes the idea of self-empowerment as, “I think people should learn how to mindfully appreciate the success of others while working on their own without comparing negatively. That’s the way every story, from everyone in this world, becomes inspiringly empowering.”

Seen to be the next big name in life coaching from Asia, Myke Celis continues to grow his influence worldwide inspiring people globally to embark on their journey to self-empowerment and allow them to be comfortable with their success, no matter what other people may say or how they may react towards it. “Own your success because you fully deserve it. Don’t let others make you feel otherwise.”

As an International Subject Matter Expert, Celis has this to say to put a stop to success shaming in general:

“Instead of finding faults in the success of others, focus on finding ways you can uplift yourself. Understand what can you learn from them, what can you apply, what can you do differently so that you can celebrate your own success alongside those who have been successful before you. The world becomes a better, happier place to live in as we support each other”

Why Kareem Hassan believes self-employment is the key to true freedom

To those working a 9-to-5, self-employment often presents itself as a daunting choice; there is a considerable risk involved but, at the same time, a lot of freedom to be enjoyed. On the other hand, freelancers and entrepreneurs also have to deal with ‘clients from hell’ at times, making them question whether self-employment was the right choice. According to Kareem Hassan, whatever be your view of being your own boss, you cannot deny the freedom that comes along with it. Here, he explains why he believes self-employment is the key to true freedom.

Kareem Hassan runs a 3D printing service and trades collectibles, which have catapulted him into immeasurable success. From early on, Kareem knew that he wanted to be his own boss; he wasn’t cut out for the 9-to-5 grind. Fueled by his passion for entrepreneurship, he began working to create a business where he could truly love and enjoy what he does.

True success to Kareem means freedom, both financial and time. It also means the freedom to be able to share your knowledge with others and to do what you want, when you want. In addition to running his business, Kareem Hassan has also ventured into creating digital art and investing in NFTs. He says that all this would not have been possible had he been working a regular 9-to-5. Instead, he would be stuck doing the same tasks with minimal returns and an even lower growth ceiling.

Another reason why Kareem Hassan vouches for self-employment is that it enables you to retire early. According to Hassan, being your own boss gives you the freedom to stop when you think you’ve accumulated enough wealth and secured enough investments. Once you achieve what you want and have your financial future secured, you can retire from work and pursue anything you want in life.

When he first got started, Kareem Hassan was not sure where this journey would lead him, but he had a firm conviction to see it to the end. He dropped out of college after two years to take care of his family. He began by investing the little he had in collectibles like comic books, rare items, trading cards, and toys. Seeing an opportunity when the popularity of comic books regained momentum in pop culture, Kareem jumped at it and established his business.

According to Kareem, besides success, freedom is the greatest thing about self-employment. Your time is your most valuable asset, and having time freedom is like having a blank canvas; you can fill it with anything you want and create magic. Knowing this, Kareem Hassan says that he wouldn’t trade that freedom for anything. He also points out that self-employment lets you choose the people you surround yourself with and create diverse networks.

Even as he explains these benefits, Kareem Hassan cautions people against assuming that self-employment is the easy way out. In fact, the entrepreneurial journey can be one of the toughest roads to travel, but it is also worth every sleepless night. Moreover, working at something you are passionate about gives you a broader view of everything, making it easier to navigate these challenges.

Despite the challenges of entrepreneurship, Kareem Hassan says that being your own boss is so much better than working for someone else. “When done right, self-employment allows you to live your dream life,” he concludes.
