How many people don’t go after their dreams because of the opinions of others?
Opinions are the cheapest commodity. They are freely handed out everyday.
Their opinions are usually based out of their own fears. The actress Taraji P Henson said that “if you listen to people and if you allow people to project their fears on to you, you won’t live.”
Try it out. You are capable of making your own decisions and to deal with the consequences if it doesn’t work
You are the only one who is likely to regret not taking any risks in your life while they go on living their own lives.
People like to limit you and place you in a box that they think fits you. You are the only one who can decide what you can or cannot do. Don’t let your grades in school decide what you are capable of. The most successful people in life failed some tests in school. Don’t let what you earn make you think that you are stuck and cannot rise above that.
Some people are insecure and they don’t want you to do better than them.
People love giving advice. It makes them feel important to know they gave you advice, especially if you follow it. They also give advice on things they don’t know anything about.
You are the only one who is going to be accountable for your life. You don’t want to reach the end of your life and have many regrets. Asking yourself what have you done with your life and if you ask yourself whether you are proud of yourself, the answer is no. You cannot say that you did not follow your dreams because someone else thought you should not pursue it.
Don’t allow someone else to take control over your life. Having someone else in control of your life is terrible. They get to decide what you can or cannot be or do.
Dare yourself not to play so safe and not think about other people anytime you want to take a risk, write a book, go back to school, get out of that relationship, stand up for yourself.
Only your opinion matters
Walk your own path even if you walk alone.
