“It’s not how good you are, it’s how you want to be.”
Everyone always says, “Follow your dreams.” But how many people are actually doing it? Yes, we all have responsibilities and have to make sure ends meet. That’s life! But don’t let life or any other excuse be the reason why you aren’t following your dreams.
There isn’t a person on this earth that can look me in the eyes and say they are content with working a nine to five. If you are, then that’s great, all power to you. But I will be the first to admit that I don’t see myself working a nine to five for the rest of my life. I am a firm believer in, “Don’t work for a company for eight hours and then go home and not work on your own dreams.” Eight hours is a long day and you probably are tired, but every day? No way! If you want something you will do whatever it takes to get it. That’s not called being tired; you’re uninspired
And to the people that are constantly reminding you about all of the sacrifices you will have to make IGNORE THEM! I know that might sound harsh, but let that add some fuel to the fire. Don’t feed into their negativity, because you will never be where you want and need to be. The people that genuinely want to see you happy and want to you succeed will be there and will stay there.
As cliché as it might sound, when it comes to your dreams think YOLO. You only live once so make every day count. Since life is so short wouldn’t you want to spend it doing something you love? Don’t wait until tomorrow start today! Your happiness and success awaits you.
