Surround yourself with like minded people- people who support your goals and lift you up with their smiles and actions- like this guy here- just look at his warm smile.
When you say “I’d like to do this- it would mean a lot to me” well, you’d like to hear “Hey, that’s a great idea,”and not “Nah- that’s a dumb idea- I wouldn’t do it.” And then you feel your heart sink as well as your spirits.
Okay, the truth is that you may never get all of your friends and family to agree with you, but if almost everyone you associate with disagrees with everything you want to do then it may be time to bring new friends into your circle. Like minded friends who support your goals. Friends that you can feel comfortable with discussing your dreams with- and not people who think you’re wrong constantly.
Why not try a “meet up” group online? There are many groups out there with people just ready to say “Oh yeah you can.” You just need to reach out. See the difference having positive, like minded friends in your life can make.
Keep on track. Don’t let the mood of other people affect you. People will sometimes be in a bad mood and say things inadvertently that can upset you and make you doubt your way.
Recognize these things for what they are…just a passing opinion. Don’t hold onto that negatively just let it go. Smile and off you go in the same direction as before. Keep on your track and don’t let anyone try to push you off…
Anytime can be the time… the time for a fresh start.
It doesn’t have to be a new day or a new week or a new year. Your fresh start can begin right now, right where you stand.
All you need to do is say to yourself that you are beginning again- that you are letting the past stay in the past where it belongs, and that you will and are perfectly capable of doing what it takes to successfully move forward.
