The world is full of examples. Examples of people who have achieved laurels in different fields regardless of their injuries, disabilities, low income conditions, marriage bounds, or conservative families issues. This is your life. You and only you get to decide what you want to do with it. You can’t rely on someone else for your happiness. You can’t blame someone else for your failures. People tell you all kind of things, force you into decisions, but it’s you in the end who makes the decision.
If you have a dream- a dream that excites you, scares you, makes you feel giddy, you are alive. But if you are letting a pile of excuses come in your way, you are sabotaging your dream. The only thing standing in between you and your dream is the idiotic excuse you keep giving yourself for not being able to reach the heights.
Every time you start for a new endeavour, there are many obstacles that come up on the way. People are going to shun you, mock you, criticize you for many of your decisions, scoff your ideas, they will tell it is not worth it, but you have to trust yourself and not be fooled by these judgemental people who try to make you doubt yourself. This world has always tried to make everyone fit into this one homogeneous frame. Those who manage to pretend to be like everyone else are appreciated. But sometimes, most times things don’t we, people don’t fit. People who decide to do something different from others are looked down upon. People that need to judge and criticize others have one thing in common: in order to feel better about themselves, they need to knock others that aren’t like them down. So they attack you in every possible way until you feel miserable about the way you are.
‘You are the Michelangelo of your own life. The David you are sculpting is you.’ Sticks and stone may break your bones, but can’t weaken your soul. Never give up on your dreams. Don’t let anyone convince you that you aren’t capable enough to achieve success. Everything is possible, however impossible it may seem initially. ‘We live on a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire and a moon that moves the oceans and you don’t believe in your dreams?’ The magic is, believing in yourself when everyone refuses to believe you. The universe is continuously testing you if you are really serious about pursing your dreams. Be stubborn. Don’t just quit and move on.
‘Don’t let small brains convince you that your dreams are too big.’
