“What makes you think you can write a book?”
“Get a haircut and get a real job.”
“You’ll never pull that off.”
They’re called Dreamstealers and everybody has them.
It does not matter what drives you to achieve at a level your friends and family don’t understand, what motivates you to fight for your dream. You resist the urge to plop on the couch and binge-watch the llatest TV craze, because you have more important fish to fry. But lurking in the shadows are those who don’t have the ambition or self-discipline to follow their dreams, so they will inevitably try to divert you from yours.
Don’t let them do it! Even if you fail, you fail knowing you tried.
That’s all any of us can do.
