You may be in a situation where other people have opinions, either expressed casually or vocally, that seem to be a weight with no end in sight. And the things that matter the most to you right now, seem just out of reach because of it.
The most important phrase in that last sentence is … “right now”. And it has greater influence on you than you think.
Right Now - can seem like forever. Right Now - the people that you want hang around with, Right Now - the team that you want to be on, Right Now - the place that you want to be at.
And all of these things seem to hit a bump in the road with people who give you an appraisal of who they think you are, or even worse, where they think you’re not! Again, … Right Now.
But under no circumstances does that mean that you have to let people tell you who you ARE. Nor do these people have any place to tell you what you can BE. No sir, that’s up to you and you alone.
If you have the desire and the what forever to pitch, get your driver’s license, buy your first car - GO FOR IT. Just be mindful of what it takes personally, inside, to do the homework first. Also, get a grip on the surroundings. If you’ve got a “favorites club” in the area, and you’re just not one of those on the inside - be realistic on your chances.
Life is such a short, precious journey. Understand the ride of your life - IS YOUR LIFE.
