Often the difference between a successful man and a failure is not one’s better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on his ideas, to take a calculated risk, and to act. ~ Maxwell Maltz
How often do you think of something that you would like to do or dream of doing and yet dont because you are too afraid? I cant even begin to tell you how many times i have done it! Too afraid that i might fail and so i fail at being successful! Too afraid of what others might say so i stay miserable like them.
Think for a few seconds on what you risk at taking a chance. Maybe you lose some money, ok, but one should never put out more money then they can afford to lose. Save your money and when you have it, then try it. Maybe people will make fun of you. So what! What have they tried? Let me tell you something, usually the ones who are making fun of you are the ones who have never put themselves out there! They are the ones who fail at life because they have no courage to take a risk and to act! Who cares what they think, they are losers!
Too often we are more concerned about what everybody around us will think that it keeps us from doing something great! We are afraid of what they will say about us. We are afraid of what they will think. Before you let that be the one thing that keeps you from stepping out and trying something, think about what all those people have done and how often they have put themselves out there!
I dont want to be a failure at life! There have been times in my life where i was a total failure for many reasons but the worst reason was because i was afraid of what others would say about me. Well let me tell you what i have found, i succeed way more than i fail now because i dont want to give that person any fuel for their fire! I push myself harder, i work harder, i put myself out there and i intend to succeed, i have the right mindset for it, I put the energy into it!
Let them make fun of you all they want! What does it really do to you? NOTHING!!! Who cares what they say! Who cares what the trolls and the haters write. I like to think of the statement, “Those that cant, comment!” If someone is making fun of you it is only because they dont want you to try because then you might end up better than them! You might prove them wrong, doesnt that sound like the most wonderful thing to do?
I challenge you to not let what others think or say deter you from having the courage to step out and try! Set out to prove them wrong! Do for you and let the haters hate because they are miserable and only want you to be miserable like them. Even if you fail at least you tried and that is more than they can say as they sit behind the counter and talk!
