“The No. 1 reason people fail in life is because they listen to their friends, family, and neighbors…” –Napoleon Hill
Let’s face it: it’s difficult to ignore everybody. If that is even possible to do. We’re surrounded by people every day and we can’t escape from them. But that’s not my point here. My point is, most times we let the talk of people especially our loved ones to chase us away from our dreams and passions. To our friends, family, and neighbors, we’re always like the twelve years old kid they knew before so they try to talk us away from our dreams and persuade us that we’re doing the wrong thing. After all, they knew our childhood.
Don’t get me wrong, our friends, family, and neighbors don’t hate us. For them, they’re trying to protect us. And the only mistake we could make is to listen to them. This is a sure-fire hindrance to one’s success. Take this as a battle that you’ve to fight for your dreams. Your dreams worth fighting for because your friends and family don’t understand your dreams. And that’s fine. The only thing you can do to succeed is to: Ignore them. Yes, ignore them. I don’t mean you should desert yourself from them. If you believe in your dreams, then ignore their talks, and focus on your dreams. If you fail, try again, and focus. You’ll get there.
