“Ignore people who tell you ‘you can’t’ or try to discourage you.”
— Jeffrey Gitomer
“Keep away from small people who try to belittle your ambitions.
Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel
that you, too, can become great.”
— Mark Twain
I totally agree with these two quotes. Some people just like raining on other people’s parade. But, you know what? I’ll take it several levels higher: you’re perfect just the way you are. You don’t need to be something you aren’t. You’re wonderful the way you are. You are deserving and worthy and you deserve the best.
This is all true and it is also true that this is hard for many to accept because they have bought someone else’s idea of how they should be, what they should have, where they should be and when. But that need be no more. You are in charge of you and there is not one person on this entire planet that is qualified to be in charge of you except you.
If anyone tries to inject doubt or discourage you in any way, it is just the unknowledgeable speaking. For it is impossible that anyone else could have the answer for you because there is not one soul on the planet that is qualified. So, it must be an error. They are obviously mistaken. They apparently don’t know who you are!
I recommend that it is far better to just let it fall away from you. Don’t bother to point out their error. Let them have their fantasy if it helps them feel better about themselves. It is of no consequence because you rock!
