There’s a unique challenge that faces dreamers.
Dreamers and goal seekers are very unique types of people. They go against the grain. They do what others cannot. They take the route that seems to be against what everyone else is doing and head in directions that would frighten most. They pave paths for people who cannot see a way and take massive risks in life. All of this is not easy. But the hardest part of the journey is to continue to have faith in oneself despite what everyone else says or thinks about them.
Dreamers face a decision: slow down to the pace of those people who aren’t walking at their speed or to venture on and let people catch up later down the line.
Time upon time, the world has attempted to destroy those who have seen the future and what could really be for our world. The world hasn’t understood that impossible does not exist for the dreamers and that its limitations on what can be done don’t apply either for those that dare greatly.
There is one fundamental question that arises for those who are seeking to change the world, “Do I continue on the path I am on despite all of this negative criticism or do I decide to fall back into the ranks of mediocrity?”
There’s only one decision to be made.
They must move forward because they can. They know that if they want to truly change the world for the better that they have to get in action and try things that they have never done before. Of course doubt, insecurity, fear and worry are going to constantly pop up in their minds, but they have to continue walking through them. If they can battle through these fears, that will certainly make the change they’ve wished for.
Of course, as they travel down their destined path, criticism will come. But that’s just part of the game.
So keep moving ahead. Keep paving paths that do not exist yet. The world will hate you now, but thank you later.
