It would be great if we all had people in our lives who support us but that’s not always the case. Many people have dreams but don’t have anyone around them who supports them. They get ridiculed, discouraged, or simply don’t get any words of encouragement.
When you have a dream and you want it bad enough, often times, you’ll just have to do what needs to be done regardless if you’re the only one on your side. During these moments, you’ll have to believe in yourself; you’ll have to be your biggest cheerleader. The odds may be against you, you might not have any evidence that you’ll be able to pull it off but if it’s something your truly want, you have to go for it.
Hopefully, as you start to produce some results, those around you will start to believe that what you’re trying to accomplish is possible. Even if this never happens, as long as you’re making progress and you’re happy, that’s all that matters. Now if you really need to have people who will support your dreams, then go out and find people who have similar dreams. If anyone is going to support you, it’s them.
Just don’t ever let the opinions of other people stop you from pursuing what’s important to you because if you do, you’ll be living life on their terms, not yours. This is your life, your one chance to live it how you want. Just because those around you can’t do something, it doesn’t mean that you can’t.
