Why is it that people can not find happiness or success in their dreams? Though there are numerous personal reasons, a major factor is the living environment itself. That major challenge is the negative, cynical attitudes of other people. These people are not your enemies, they are friends, even family members. Well, a couple might be your enemy, but that is besides the point.
If our friends and family are negative towards our dreams or aspirations . . . our friends and family can keep us from reaching our goals.
You get excited about the possibility of a new job, a new idea, or a new image. You decide to give up smoking, lose weight, see the opportunity to better your life or rise to a personal challenge.
Then you tell your friends or family about your plan, and you hear . . . “You can’t do that” . . . along with a list of all the problems and challenges as to why you will never make it happen.
Your enthusiasm disintegrates. You begin to have some self doubt creep into your dream which diminishes that fire and self-confidence and you begin to think of all the reasons why you can’t make it, instead of the reasons that you can.
Remember, the world is full of these people that will tell you all the things you cannot do or cannot be. Why? Because they do not have what it takes to succeed and they do not want you to prove them wrong. Do not listen to them!
If you have a dream, make it happen. Do not let anyone take that faith you have in yourself to make things happen.
If you have that flame of a dream deep down inside you somewhere, do something about it, and don’t let anyone else diminish it.
Believe you can, and you will find you can.
Just do it! You will be surprised how many good things can happen to you!
