The Cost Of Buying Into Other People's Crap
"When you buy into people's opinions, you buy into their lifestyle."
Ever since the start of time, going after your dreams always comes at a huge cost and risk. The reason why is because society has always been against it. Society has always taught us to do what we're supposed to: go to school, get a degree, get a job and be able to finally retire by the age of 65.
Well, times are changing and that doesn't work anymore. People who follow that end up being victims. We hear and see it everywhere. I see a 70+ year old guy working nightshifts at CVS. Do you think that's what he wanted in life? I can't help but feel bad for that guy. That NEVER happens here. Look for yourself.
The problem is...
...everyone has dreams, but not everyone has the guts to fulfill it. They're scared to take action because they fear what others may think or say (a.k.a. opinions or useless crap). Truth is, everyone is capable for massive success in life. It's just not everyone reaches out to it.
Here's the reality folks, no matter what you do in life, there will ALWAYS be 2 sides of the coin, the positive and the negative. You decide to become a doctor, one side will say I believe in you or I'm happy you're making this decision and the other side will say you don't have the intelligence to be a doctor or I have a feeling this guy will drop out mid way. Controlling what other people say is like trying to take over the world. It's impossible! This is the only circumstance where impossible literally means impossible.
If you're to control and react to everything people say, you're going to go crazy! Literally!
What other people have to say about you doesn't matter at all! It's your life and it's up to you to live it by your rules. You're all grown up. You have the power and the choice to make your own decisions. You may think other people have the power over you but that's not true. You're just listening and giving more priority to their voice instead of yours.
I guarantee that if you decide to live someone else's life simply because you want other people to be happy, you will end up miserable and full of regrets. It's gonna suck big time. You wouldn't want that, right? You're gonna realize that you never lived life at all. You don't know who you are and you're lost. You'll realize that all this time, you've been living your parent's life or your teacher's life or your uncle and aunt's life, etc.
Man up! It's time to embrace life. Life is a different experience for each person. Work on your story and it may be the spark that inspires someone to follow their dreams. Life is more than what your eyes see.
Ignore what others have to say. Use it as a fuel get even more passion and inspiration to do even far more greater things. Life is a beautiful journey and I promise you, you'll discover things about yourself that you never even knew existed.
