What’s More Important: The Dream Or Other’s Approval?

Dream or the Approval

Be happy. Keep working.

We are always watching what the next person has. Trying to stay relevant with material things. Relevant to people who care nothing about you.
Oftentimes we are worried about being popular and making others jealous. When you should be grateful for what you have now and working on something better. It’s all about building a legacy that your ancestors could be proud of.

It’s just as simple as that. You must put in the work for your dreams to come true. What does your heart desire? What lies in your subconscious that you are scared to reveal to the world?

What are you waiting for?

Have a great Friday everyone!!

Become.  What is your goal in life?  Who has already succeeded in it?  Got it?  Now, I say let’s pursue it differently than others will.  Sure, we know we have to work hard in school or on the field.  Take a different route to get there.  If you are on a basketball team, learn all the positions instead of one, so that you become more valuable to the team.  In turn you become great because your team grew stronger.  Take the journey of learning  about your goal while you are pursuing a different path.  Read more. Experience it in different environments.  I guarantee  that in the end, who you needed to become will shine through.  We have enough carbon copies in the world…become you.
