Prove it to yourself and the world that you can. Believe in your dreams, pay no attention to nay Sayers. Everybody cannot encourage you. You have to know what you want and go for it. Never give up on your dreams! Take that bold step today just the way the Wright Brothers did and leave a footprint even when you are long gone.Langston Hughes will say- Hold fast to your dreams, for without them life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.
Everything you need to achieve your goal is inside of you already. The truth is, people who are successful are not very much different than you. So stop making excuses for yourself! yes you heard right. You have gotten all that it takes to make your dreams come true.
Be appreciative for your God-given capabilities and strive for success. You have got all that it takes, you have all the tools inside of you to endure and keep going. Do you think great minds like Martin Luther King Jr. or Steve Jobs never dealt with worries or difficulties? They definitely did but they never allowed their fears and anxieties stop them from achieving their dreams and their legacies were built only after they endured, pushed through and they never gave up!
Personally, I feel regret is the worst feeling a person can feel. Do what you have to do now and Don’t put yourself in that regret position. Tony Robbins created a “Rocking Chair Test” which he uses with his clients and utilizes the powerful feeling of regret to motivate and inspire people to push through their anxieties. It goes like this:
Take a moment and imagine yourself at 85 years old. You’re in your rocking chair, reflecting on how you’ve lived. Imagine your life if you did whatever it is that makes you anxious or fearful; maybe it’s changing careers, learning to fly a helicopter or taking a trip somewhere new. How do you feel? What’s your life been like as a result of the decision? – Tony Robbins. A lot of people are just there to see you give up. It is better to fail and try again than to fail and GIVEUP. You have to prove to yourself and to the world that you are strong and that you know where you belong and that you can achieve your dreams.
When it comes to life, I want you to always have an “underdog mentality”. As DJ Khaled very notably says on Snapchat “THEY DON” T WANT YOU TO WIN” and this is absolutely true. The “they” in this context are all the successful people in the world who want to hold you back and do NOT want to give you any piece of their pie. You must fight and never give up. Imagine if Steve Jobs gave up and didn’t fight till his dream was achieved and let the “they” of his time win. We wouldn’t have smartphones and and everything else that we today take for granted.
In conclusion, don’t let anything or anyone stop you from your goal. Like I said before true failure isn’t when you fail, but when you fail and give up on your dreams. Know this now, you are capable of achieving what you set your mind to and quitting is only for weak minds.
