What you think of the title? Pretty negative right? Well believe it or not, this is a very positive thread! The title is a just a way to grab your attention!
Family, friends, strangers, it's likely that none of them believe in you! There's always going to be the odd exception where one person has 110% belief that you will achieve your goals and ambitions. But more often than not, they won't be like that.
For me, most of my friends and family don't think that I will succeed! In fact, some of them disapprove of my outlook on life and I think that's great! I truly do appreciate their honesty. I don't agree with their opinions but I don't argue over it, I accept reality and keep on working.
What does bug me is when people say they have faith in you when they actually don't! I have recently told people to be honest about it, tell me!
At this point, you're like "Why would you want criticism to and to feel that no one actually believes in you?". Well, it's my life, not theirs! I believe in myself, and to be frank, knowing that not that many others do, is a great source of motivation!
I learnt today that it's okay that no one believes in you, I accept that. I shouldn't worry about it, I should just get my a** in gear and prove them wrong!
Don't let others affect you! You're quite capable of making success happen. You just need to do it! No more wasting time, just start working right now! Forget about what others think, you're the one working to be successful!
