1. You think you’re not good enough.
Everyone has that little voice in their head screaming that they’re pathetic, a failure, and worthless. But that voice is actually one of the best things we can have. It will tell us over and over when something isn’t good enough, and that’s us. We know our limits, and so do our minds. So, the next time you hear that little voice again, think of it as a way of your brain saying this: I can do better and I can succeed in my dreams.
2. You say you “don’t have enough time”.
If you don’t have enough time for something you’re passionate about, then you truly never were that passionate about it. Think about how much time you spend on social media each day – and you still say you have no time? If you truly have no time, then drop what you don’t like and start doing what you love. You have one life, so what do you have to lose to go after a dream? Nothing.
3. Your peers think otherwise.
Your peers will stop at nothing to put down your dreams and aspirations. They believe that in life, you have to be a realist. But if you worked a 9-to-5 job and died tomorrow, what would happen? Someone would come and take your place, people would mourn, and that would be it. Your life as a blip in the earth’s existence. Forgotten. However, if you go out there in that big world and attempt to make something of your dream, you will be more successful than others who worked all day in a job they despised. You have the chance of never being forgotten. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. So go for it.
4. You say, “I’m not quite ready yet”.
It takes a lot of courage to chase a dream. With every day that passes, you are the oldest you’ve ever been, and the youngest you’ll ever be again. Time will run from you. You don’t wait for opportunity, you create your opportunity and you build your bridges. If there is a path that leads to success that is covered in debris – you’d better get ready to clear it. Because you are ready. You will make yourself ready.
