Over the last few years I seen people that had to waste their entire life (some fatally) because of "Belief" and what those around them thought, and this one is for them.
It’s pretty bad when the people you love don’t believe in you, ain’t it?
Whether you’re dreaming big or just a lot, it’s very likely that the second a goal comes out of your mouth, the people around you won’t be there to cheer you on. And because you’re no longer 12, you need to learn to deal with this ugly reality: you don’t need them, you need you.
I’m not saying having supportive friends, family and lover isn’t important—crap, (it’s really important). Unfortunately, it’s not always rainbows and butterflies and you are not built to deal with these life scenarios with a suit of armor.
It’s easy to want to ignore the lack of support around you—ignorance is bliss. But what you need to know is that ignorance also tends to slap you straight in the face when you least expect it. You need to be ready.
Take a moment to acknowledge those who do not believe in you. Let it sting and let it hurt. Don’t focus your energy on resenting them, but rather try to focus on the fact you have set out on a journey and people around you are simply reacting to it. They didn’t build your ship, they’re not your crew, and you certainly don’t need them to set out to sea. You’re the captain of your own ship, this is your friggen journey
Let Their Doubt Fuel You … Or Don’t
Once you have painfully accepted that the people you love don’t believe in you (again, pretty shitty of them) you have two options to consider pursuing
I don’t care what they say. I’m going to do it and keep my eyes on the prize.
Oh, you don’t think I can do it? WATCH AND LEARN!
That’s it. You either keep at what you’re doing and completely disregard when others don’t believe in you, or you let their doubt fuel you and make you work harder to achieve your dreams.
Whatever you do, don’t let them take you down and make you double guess yourself. There was a time for that—a time most of us would like to forget, but a crucial time nonetheless—adolescence. Back then, testing our strength and letting others get us down was part of the learning process, now it’s just a hurdle to jump over like the gazelle you are.
Confidence Vs Support—Showdown
When others don’t believe in you, it’s like a straight punch in the face you’re your confidence. Consequently, when others do believe in you, it can be the boost you need to get you moving.. When others do or don’t believe in you, it’s just a boost … it’s not the whole journey. All you need is that one person, hold on to them and their words, they could make the difference in your belief.
When you succeed, no one will be able to question whether or not you worked for it and when that moment does come, You want to be able to say, “I told you I could do it.”
Dedicated to all those that need “light” to guide their way and build belief. No one and nothing can stop you
