I recently stumbled on this image when I was on Ramit Sethi’s I Will Teach You To Be Rich blog. For the first time in my life, I really got to understand what they say about a picture being worth a thousand words. I instantly felt great by just relating to this image before I even read the whole inspiring John Caples story.
Our lives are characterized by negativity which comes in one form or another. This negativity seeks to tear us down and make us lose our self-belief. There will always be people who think that you are not good enough and you have no hope of succeeding. That is not the problem, in fact, it has never been. The problem is when you start believing what these people are saying and you let their negativity decide your future.
I will not say much in this post. I will just let the image do the talking, but in your quest to build the life you want, remember that no one owes you anything. Do not expect kindness and support from anyone (but do appreciate it when it is given). There will always be people who will try to bring you down and make you doubt your worth, but DON’T YOU DARE listen to them. Rise to the challenge and show them that YOU CAN.
