People know your name but not your story. They’ve heard what you’ve done, but not what you’ve been through. So take their opinion of you with a grain of salt. In the end it’s not what others think, it’s what you think about yourself that counts. Sometimes you have to do exactly what is best for you and your life, not what is best for everyone else.

One valuable lesson in life is understanding that people won’t always support you even though you support them. They won’t always respect your feelings even though you respect theirs. Sometimes the people you do the most for are the ones less likely to lend a helping when you are the one in need. Sometimes you have to be your own best friend and your biggest cheerleader because it’s not about them. It’s about you!
In life you will hear more noes that yesses and you will encounter a lot of closed doors. Don’t take it personal and doubt yourself. Like you many people had a lot of doors slammed in their faces, but you know what some didn’t let it stop them. They kept knocking. They kept pushing and their persistency eventually paid off. There is nothing that can stop someone who is determined to succeed.
It takes determination to see your dream come through. It takes believing in yourself when others don’t. It takes telling yourself I can when others tell you, you can’t. It takes getting back up when you fall and learning from your mistakes. It takes pushing forward when you feel like giving up. Remember if success was easy everyone would be successful. So keep working at it until your dream becomes your reality.
