Use negative energy to your advantage. Let it fuel you in the right direction instead of holding you down in the wrong place.
Many people will tell you that you can’t do something. Some will go so far as to say that you aren’t good enough or cut out for what you don’t want to do.
Please don’t listen to the naysayers. They do not know what you are capable of. If you want something bad enough, you can make it happen as long as it is within your control. In other words, you can’t control what someone else does; you can only control your own actions.
When someone tells you that you can’t do something, you have to ask yourself why? Where are they coming from? Is it a place of envy, fear, or love? Perhaps, you, yourself, have given them a reason to believe you are not capable.
Some people do many things, work at many jobs and don’t keep any because it is not fulfilling. To those on the outside, all they see is someone who doesn’t follow through or quits when things get difficult.
Others stay at the same job, miserable, but doing what is required to put a roof over their head and food on the table. When they decide to start doing something different that they are passionate about, people may see it as irresponsible because they choose to leave a stable job.
It is up to you to dig deep and work hard for your dream. You need to understand that things will go wrong, and there will be struggles, but if you are living your dream and fulfilling your purpose, you must keep going. You need to be committed to your goals and willing to put in the work required, even when it is hard.
When others start to tell you that you can’t, don’t expend energy worrying about it. Prove them wrong. If you have a well-thought-out plan, you can show it to them.
Use their negative energy to propel you further ahead and solidify your goals. When you succeed, then you can sit back and smile, knowing you accomplished your dream. Your reward will be in the achievement.
Remember that some people will try and hold you back because they don’t want to be left in their misery. Some will try and hold you back because they don’t want to see you fail. Their fear of failure steps in and takes over. Others will try to protect you from hurt because they love you. When you understand this, you can step back and not be upset by the negativity.
Don’t let others’ opinions deter you. Make use of the negative energy.
