How are you doing with the goals you are working on? Are you making progress?
When others lose faith in your ability to reach your goals it’s absolutely essential to keep having faith in yourself.

All of us have a dream, don’t we? We all have dreams, no matter how big or how small. We all have them and we shouldn’t let anyone stand in the way of us reaching our goals. Doing so will dishonour our dreams and make us look like idiots for even believing in them. All of us have dreams and the moment that we give up on our dreams is the moment we begin giving up on making something of this time we have been given to make our mark. When we allow naysayers and sceptics to belittle us, put us down, tell us that we are wasting our time and getting no where, we are giving up on ourselves. Be better than that! Be who you always wanted to be and better! Be stronger than fear! Be stronger than doubt!

Chase after your rainbow. Go for those dreams, and never, never let anyone stop you. Never give up on yourself!

I do know how scary it is to chase your dreams, doing something that’s never been done before. It tests you to your core and can cause insecurities to arise that if we don’t deal with them can sabotage our whole plan. There will always be something else to learn. And there will always be somebody ready to pull you down, to stop you in your track.

We all work hard so we and our loved ones can have a better life. Having faith and believing that you can achieve your dreams and desires will help you to reach your goals. No matter what, follow your dreams and know that what you want can become a reality. Do not let others or your own negative thinking stop you from doing what your heart desires. We all face trouble in our lives, but I believe with every trial in our life, we learn a lesson. You will achieve your desire if you have faith in yourself.

“With realization of one’s own potential & self confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.” Dalai Lama

The minute someone close demonstrates to you they’ve run out of patience and that they have lost faith in you it feels like the pressure has intensified dramatically. You feel all alone, left hung out to dry. When they ridicule you, or just as bad, put you down, you question yourself completely.

But you can’t let it get to you!

You can’t let them stop you from trying to get to the finish line.

Under no circumstances let them make you feel like a failure.

Unless of course you think they are right.

Ask yourself this one question.

Do you determine your success based upon someone else’s barometer of success or on your own scale?

Believe me when I tell you, I personally know what it’s like to lose the support of somebody close to you. For me it played a part in the break up of my marriage.
Well let me tell you, follow your dreams because you can accomplish anything, so long as you put your mind to it. The world’s your oyster! You know yourself, and you know what you’re putting in, and if you don’t question your future success, why should others. I’m not telling you to fool yourself. You have to be honest. Continuously reflect on what’s happening, check to see if you’re getting closer to your goal. But if you know with confidence things are happening, and that progress is being made, then go with it, don’t be deterred.

You have to have faith. Have no doubts. Believe in yourself. If you do not believe it will happen then it won’t. It is as simple as that. Faith is knowing that even though the situation looks impossible, it is not. It is knowing that at the right time and place it will happen.

You have to go against the odds, you have to go against others opinions. At times it’s a hard road. It feels like a battle, an uphill one at that. But it will be worth it. Do you realize how much happier you would be doing the thing or things that you truly desire.

Sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt you. They are entitled to their opinion. But they don’t know everything. Only you do. You are the one putting your time, energy, and you into it, and you, only you, know at the end you will succeed. Whatever it takes you won’t give up, you know you will find the way.

By having faith you allow yourself to know that anything is possible. It shows you that you are on the right track. It helps you stick with it and find your way through doing the things you need to do in order to achieve your goal.

When you have faith that it will happen, then you will do all you can do to make it happen. You will work harder on achieving it.

You have to follow your heart. Listen to your gut. Understand that you are the one that has to live your life every day. You only get one life. No one else walks in your shoes but you. It takes a lot of fearlessness and courage to pursue your dream and attain your lifelong goals.

Don’t give up on your goals and the things you want to accomplish in your life.
Don’t let anyone’s opinion stop you in your track or make you doubt yourself.

Now go and prove them all wrong.

Be ready to one day say “I told you so”

The world is waiting for you to do great things.

Your dreams can come true if you work hard enough for them. Never lose faith.
Thanks for reading me and don’t ever give up on your dream!
