The people you surround yourself with matter. When you have good days, they’re just part of the cheer section. You may not hear their voices but you know they’re there. But inevitably you will have a bad day. You will struggle. You will doubt yourself. You will fear success.
You will want to crawl into a cave and hibernate. You will question why you ever thought you could do anything. You are cruel to yourself. You’re unforgiving of mistakes, impatient for success. Every time you fall down you’re right there to batter your pysche. You knew it all along, you can’t do it.
I can tell you that the fear is natural. I’m not sure if we’re taught to be mediocre or if it’s just a side affect of paying taxes. Change is terrifying, deciding to change major aspects of your life seems impossible. Stagnation is common and accepted. It’s so much easier to just give in and accept these things you wish you could change. Everyone knows that those dreams are for other people, not you. I ask why not you?
You are a dreamer of probable dreams. You can have success. It is vital that you drown out your fear. That you silence your attack with the voices of those that uplift and inspire. Surround yourself with courage and fire. It is a true foolproof path to success.
You will toil day after day, some with little merit. But your ongoing effort and continued commitment to yourself is making a difference. You have grown along the way. You are inspiring others. You have built a new world where it is possible to live your dreams.
Shout out to your inspirations. Share with your motivator. Thank your mentors. These voices will save you from the darkest trials and keep you going after you’ve given up on yourself. Build a team of influences that uplift and let go of those that try to diminish your goals.
There are so many people ready to crush your hopes and belittle your dreams; quiet those voices and focus on your supporters. You absolutely can have the life you dream of. You can do anything if you just keep trying. You are truly capable!
