You are the one who paddles your boat and gives it direction. Don’t wait for others to tell you where to go or how to get there. Stand up for yourself and your goals. Don’t live out the dreams others were too afraid to accomplish on their own. This isn’t their life. It’s yours. Be strong and put forth the endurance to get where you want to be. Don’t be afraid to work for it.
Reaching for your dreams takes work and effort on your part. No one is going to look at you and automatically know what you want to be when you “grow up”. No one can read your mind. You’re going to have to be brave and share your dream with others for their support. And no one is going to hand you your dream on a silver platter without effort from you.
Those that try to talk you out of it are expressing their own fear and worry about not achieving their dreams. Those that try to force you down a different path maybe expecting you to follow their dream, because they failed to achieve it. Don’t become angry. Rather remain focused and let them know this isn’t their life, it’s yours. And when you stand at the end of your days and look back, you want to be proud of the effort you put into achieving your goals.
Yes it might be hard. But that never stopped those who reached for the stars and achieved success. You can balance all aspects of your life in proper fashion to discover happiness and to be successful. Too much of anything good or bad can capsize your ship if you’re not careful. Take time to shift the load and make sure you’re maintaining an even keel. You’ll be able to ride through the rough water with security when they arise. You’ll be able to sit back and relax as you float with the tied, instead of against it. And you’ll be able to endure the journey and still have plenty left when you get to where you’re going. If you believe in yourself and maintain balance.
Don’t allow those who make threats or ultimatums deter your journey. You don’t need that kind of help and there are other sources in your life to take their place. You have no excuses. Others have achieved success by finding alternative sources who will support them, so can you. It’s a big world and there are tons of opportunities for those who want to achieve their goals. And are willing to work hard, be respectful and do the right things to get there.
You can feel sorry for those who try to control your life. Show them compassion because it’s only their fear talking. They fear losing you. They fear you failing. They fear what will happen to them if you walk your own path without them to save you. But you don’t need saving. And you don’t need to walk away from them either. Let them be mad, but don’t join then on that battlefield and continue to show them love and kindness…as you walk away onto your own path.
You make the choices that set up your future. Make sure you know what’s important to you and make the right decisions for yourself. The effort begins with being strong and standing up for your goals and dreams. Always remember that someone else in this world had and has it much harder than you do. If they can stand up and make the effort to succeed and achieve their dreams, so can you.
