Ross Johnson - When you first start posting on social media...
Andy Frisella of the MFCEO Project has talked about this exact thing and said exactly what you just said, Ross. A lot of the time those friends will talk shit and tease you about it because of one of two things: 1) they are jealous that you are making the effort and doing big things 2) they aren’t great friends in the first place and they don’t want you to change or grow.

Once I wrapped my head around this it became a lot easier to ignore the shit talking and negative comments from “friends”.

(1) Mitch Miller - If you want to wipe the floor with everyone around...
Be a good person and remember that beating others is just a natural byproduct of being the best you can possibly be.

For you.

If you are not at peace with performing better than other people, you'll supress down your own potential which will lay dormant until it pops up later in life and turn you into a sad, bitter hater on anyone else trying to improve themselves.

And...

...beating the fucking pants off everyone else will raise the bar, and by default, lift everyone around you and push the world further along.

Being the best is the best way to help others be better because you are leading by example.

Srinivas Rao - PROGRESS VS PERFECTION When we have expectations...
Great post on letting go of expectations

-------

Going into a date thinking somebody has to fall head over heels in love with you or a job interview thinking that your potential future boss has to see that you’re a genius are expectations.

By letting go of our expectations, we’re able to seek progress instead of perfection. We adopt a learning posture and we’re liberated from the weight of expectations. As a result, we’re fully self-expressed, authentic, and unapologetic no bullshit versions of ourselves.

Once we stop needing things to change in order to be ok, those things start to change. What we resist persists. What we accept dissolves. Seeking perfection is resistance. Seeking progress is acceptance.
