When someone tells you you can’t do something and shoots you down for it, ask them what they’ve accomplished with their life so far.
Chances are they can’t really answer that question because people who bring others down are usually not doing very well themselves. Such negative people don’t want to see others succeed and improve while they stay stuck in their negative and stubborn ways. People who have made it are going to be the ones who will encourage you while the ones who have given up will shoot you down.
Some people just want to watch the world burn.
And it’s sad. So many people not pursuing their dreams and ambitions because of people telling them they can’t do this and they can’t do that.
Find your passion, pursue it, and ignore those who say you can’t do it. Because there have been so many who came before you who made it despite other people telling them they can’t do it.
Like Oprah Winfrey who endured an abusive childhood and was fired from her television reporter job for being “unfit for tv”. Hard to believe I know. But that didn’t stop her. Now she hosts her own tv show, makes millions of dollars and is one of the most charismatic people alive.
Don’t worry about failing. So what if you fail? You just get right back up and keep pushing forward. That’s what winners do!
Just think of a kid who’s trying to learn how to walk. They fall so many times. Sometimes pretty badly too. But they get right up over and over and over again and finally learn to walk.
They don’t give up so why you should you when it comes to everything else? We don’t see able-bodied adults still crawling on the floor like babies right? We all know how to do it. And we all know what it takes to get there all along.
Fall and get up.
Do it enough times and major breakthroughs are bound to happen. Don’t be afraid to fail because failures are stepping stones to greatness and we need them if really want to succeed. Fall and get right back up.
