I would like to be remembered as the person who wished to be free, free of restrains, free to choose her life and life it how I mean it to be led.
Everyone wants to succeed in life, whether at work, at home, or simply a personal goal. But to do this one must overcome social pressure, conflict, criticism, and most importantly, self-doubt. We are truly our worst enemies. We are the first to say, “I can’t. I won’t. I shouldn’t.” When you get your head in the right mind set, (which is the single most important set to success (determination to achieve something)), then you walk out into the cruel world, where everything is going against you and you are wavering in your determination. Your biggest factor affecting you is others.
When others tell us we can’t, or we shouldn’t, it should be merely advice, or determination. When someone who has tried to fly too close to the sun, ask them what went wrong, then improve on their idea. But don’t back down. Don’t think it’s too hard. We all fall, but it’s those who stand back up and try again who are the champions of life.
For those who tell us we can’t but have never actually tried. They are simply afraid of you success, jealous of your courage to try something they never could. When they tell you no, go and do it, with more conviction than ever. Prove them wrong, show them how it’s done. If you fall, don’t quit, don’t give up, and don’t let them tell you they were right. Re-think your approach and try again. Keep trying until you succeed.
Some spend a life time on a single idea. Other succeed on their first time, either way the feeling they achieve by conquering their challenge over shadows the hard times they faced to do it. Keep at it and eventually you will succeed. Then you can look them in the eye and tell them they were wrong. You are better than you believe. No matter what you’ve achieved, or haven’t, you can always be better.
