“You’ll never amount to much in this world”
If you want to know who you are, take a look at a the 5 closest people in your life…
Chances are they’ll make a pretty good image of what you stand for… good or bad it can all be changed.
As a kid, I always wondered what it would take to be great a something. After a while I soon learnt it depended on whom I listened to as to how much I could achieve. Some people don’t know how to praise vision and success of someone else so their way of dealing with these situations causes friction and often make us feel bad. But truth is, if they can’t have it reality is they don’t want us to have it either…
On the other hand you’ll come across people in life who want nothing better for you than success in every way. These people love you, they encourage you, they just tell you to keep going on. These are the people you want to spend more time around, these are the people who are going to confirm your ideas and support you until they are realities.
It wasn’t until a few different people started saying to me that, ‘you’re going places kid”, ‘just keep working and you’ll get there’. At the time I didn’t really know what they meant, nor did I really believe them. But sure enough, I got told enough times to change my own self-belief and started saying to myself, ‘you know what? I am going places and I am going to achieve great things!’
Consequently too, if you hear the negative term of ‘you’ll never amount to much’ too many times your going to start believing that about yourself too.
The strangest thing of all is it’s your decision to believe what you want and it only takes the right person to say the right thing to change your life forever.
To start the ball rolling to need to start being around these people who see nothing but the best in you. Once you surround yourself with great people you to will see the world with enriched passion for life.
