How many times have you given up on what you wanted because no one else believed in you?
How many times have you felt that what you wanted was right, only to give up because you were afraid?
Well, I'm here to tell you....
I can tell you that I have given up on many of my dreams over my lifetime because no one else believed in me.
I was afraid and more often than not I gave up way too easily and for all the wrong reasons.
The times that I've stood alone and followed what I believed in, the road may not have been easy, my decisions may not have been popular, and I may have been shaking in my proverbial boots, but I haven't regretted following my instincts even if I did fail. Because those were the times that I believed in myself or my cause.
Believe me I have stuck my foot in my mouth more often than I care to think about and I have made a lot of mistakes, but if they were my mistakes, then I learned from them and I have definitely learned to stand taller for what I believe in.
I don't give up easily these days and I hope you won't either. No one knows you better than you do, so don't be afraid to stand up for your dreams.
