Do you have a dream? Do you have a passion? Are you pursuing it now? If not, what happened? Were you discouraged, do you feel like it isn’t realistic, or did life happen? Are you thinking about your dream too much and not actually trying to achieve it? These are all valid questions and scenarios many of us have faced.
Who and what are your dream killers? A lot of times they come in the form of people. They come as people disguised as helpers. You see, if they came as enemies, they wouldn’t even have the power to kill your dreams because you wouldn’t be susceptible1 to their message. You share your goals and vision with them and they tell you, “you can’t do this”, or maybe they say, “how about you ___insert small goal here___?”. Maybe they mean well and don’t want to see you disappointed when you don’t achieve what you are striving for (or even worse, they have achieved it and don’t want you as their “competition”). The thing is, they have matched your capability with their capabilities. They know they can’t achieve what you have shared, so they think you can’t also. In reality, the only person that can kill your dreams is YOU.
“Over-analysis is a dream killer. Sometimes you can drown yourself in your own thoughts.” ― Steve Maraboli
Find your passion, find your purpose, and go for it. Don’t waste your time with people or entertain discouraging thoughts trying to get in your way. Don’t even argue with people or respond to their criticism of you if it comes with no benefit or chance of progress. Those thoughts and people will waste your time, drag you away from your purpose, and you will become like them… standing still.
I Love You,
