If you always wait for people to pat you on the back and congratulate you, then you will never get far. There are many people who have great ideas and could do so much more with their lives but they are not. This is because they are not getting the applause they want from people around them. Thus they get discouraged and stop doing what they should.
The first fan you should have is yourself. Learn to look at yourself in the mirror and encourage yourself. Talk well about yourself and don’t expect others to see what you see. If other people do not get on the bandwagon, then it’s their loss. Don’t wait to move at the rate of the naysayers in your life. Yes you can listen to advice from other people about what you intend to do. But just make sure that they are people who are on an upward trail. If you ask people who have achieved nothing, they will not see your worth.
You have to be so confident in what you are doing that people keep quiet and look at you with their mouths agape. Let your positive thoughts override the negative ones. Keep pushing until the gates open up for you. Does that mean that you will always be on a high? The answer is no. there are days you will want to sit down and quit. Yet you should not lose your focus. Imagine the joy of finally achieving your dream and you will see the setbacks as only temporary.
