TGIM! Here’s some Monday morning warm fuzzy inspiration to brighten your shiny new week.
Have people said your dream is impossible to achieve? Are they saying you’re crazy for even trying? I have heard negative stuff like that so many times about my goals I can’t even tell you. People have gotten so angry at me for daring to dream big that some of them have even yelled in my face how I was wasting my time on a dream that would never become reality.
They yelled how I would never find a one-bedroom in the West Village for $1,500. I found that needle in a haystack.
They yelled how I would never get a book published. My ninth book will be published next year.
They yelled how I was ridiculous for refusing to settle for less than a soul mate. After searching for a long time, I am with my soul mate now.
Super fun thing: achieving goals people told me would be impossible to achieve.
When people are mean/jealous/unsupportive about your goals instead of being excited for you, it’s usually a symptom of their own fear. Someone who is unhappy with their life might have a hard time being happy about yours. Their nasty ranting is about them and their issues, not you. So please do not let negative people discourage you from achieving your goals. Next time someone’s all negative in your face ranting how you can’t do something you want to do? How what you want to do is impossible and it will never happen and how dare you even try?
Do it anyway.
