“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.”
"I so want to do it, but I am afraid."
"What are you afraid of?"
"I am afraid that people won't like me."
"That's it, I don't want to be disliked."
Have you ever had this conversation with yourself? Let's be honest here. If everybody likes you then you are doing it wrong. Simple is that.
If everybody likes you then you are not living life to your fullest potential.
Don't sell yourself short in life, if you have a passion for something, have a dream or really want to do something, then you should go do it, period!
It doesn't matter what you do there will always be people talking you down. It is normal.
Does the thought of being disliked scare you?
It certainly scares me, but I have realized that when people want you to fail or talking you down, it is a sign of weakness on their side, not yours. They are insecure themselves and are afraid to go after what they want so they figure they talk other people down instead.
Don't bother, instead focus on the people that is out there hustling, grinding and working hard for their dreams.
They know the taste of failure, they know the taste of other peoples trash talk. But they also know the sweet, sweet taste of success. That feeling when preparation meets opportunity.
Today I will give you a little exercise. I want you to answer three questions. It will take you approximately 10-15 minutes. Answer the questions now, don't wait!
Write this down and please be honest to yourself. You can lie to others (even if its not good), but please don't lie to yourself.
If you want a little more help with your dreams, you should take my 100 % FREE 7-Day Goal Book Challenge.
