I think often as human beings we are afraid to brag. We are afraid to make other people feel inferior. We are afraid to show off how great we are. Since we are afraid of been seen as too cocky. Since it is human nature to want to be like by others, we are often afraid to take the path we need to by ourselves.
So instead, we often lower ourselves and we don’t take that risk or the next step. Because we never want to be better, than anyone for the fear of seeming to up ourselves or being to out of touch with reality of other people. Because for some reason we have developed into a society where we don’t really like to see other people doing better, so when us, as individuals try to do better than others everyone tries to tear you down. They say reach our dreams, but don’t dream too big because it will be impossible and you will never make it.
Just go to university and get a normal job like everyone else. But we don’t have to do that. We don’t all have to stop dreaming because of a few failures that have set us back. My favourite quote of all time is that you don’t know how close to success you were when you gave up. I think that is so true because the more you fail and the harder it gets, the closer you are to reaching that dream. Your dream is simply your dream and don’t let anyone take that away from you.
Do not make yourself smaller, to make others feel better because at the end of the day the person you have to take the most care of is you, and the person you have to make happy first is you. Before you can ever look after or make anyone else happy. The most important person in your life should be you, because you can never let yourself down.
And absolutely no matter what let that sparkle shine within you, scream it from the rooftops, take that dream by the bloody balls and take steps even small steps to go and achieve that dream. Because my darling the first step to making a dream happen is to simply have one. You have a dream, and that is something that will make you want to wake up every day and it will make you look forward to every day. You will be excited to start your day and kick goals and having that is a lot more than most people can say.
