Ponderings – “You Can’t”

To anyone with a goal or a dream, with a clear vision of what they want their life to look like in the future, I’ve got a piece of advice for you that I only recently learned myself: tell someone. Tell your mom, your dad, your siblings, your friends. Tell the whole world.

Then, listen to what they have to say. Your dream’s a big one (of course it is- whoever dreamt small?) so you’ll most likely be met with some opposition. Some naysayers. People will walk right up to you and tell you to your face that you can’t do it.

And to those people I can only give a smile. For every time I’m told that I can’t do something, it reassures me that I can. Every discouragement thrown my way is only used as fuel for the fire within me that cannot be contained.
