I see it happen to people many times, where people don’t end up pursuing their dreams due to the result of what their family and friends would say. Some people even open up to loved ones about what their aspirations are in life, but the opinions of loved ones can have a big effect on us.
I can think of three reasons why friends and family may not approve of the dreams that are inside you and that is:
– they didn’t work hard enough on their dreams, or they don’t believe dreams can become a reality so they want to avoid you wasting your time
– it’s not a common/traditional dream that is similar to your family/friends circle of vision and goals
– they are simply threatened or jealous that you can make it if you put your mind to it
The issue with this problem is that if you don’t pursue your life goals, what exactly will you be carrying out in life?
Will you be living someone else’s life? And their idea for what THEY recommend for YOUR life?
You have the opportunity and hold the power to decide that you want to prosper in every area of your life. Areas that you will find satisfaction in, living with purpose and not just simply existing..
Over the years I found that we shouldn’t take it personal when our loved ones don’t support us, it may be just they aren’t used to seeing the kind of vision we have for our lives. It’s quite rare these days for someone to reach forth and pursue big dreams. In many cases it’s a simple process to secure a job or apply for an education, but what really requires you to be disciplined and push is the road to success.
In life I’ve come to realise you have to be your own supporter, when nobody else around you will be. If you don’t believe in yourself, who will?
Discipline yourself to continually cheer yourself on, speak positive affirmations and life into existence. Make a promise to yourself saying that you will not give up until you receive all that you’ve dreamed of! So many successful people on earth were their own supporters for a long while, they literally started from the bottom and worked their way up.
You can do that to.
Stop being so concerned about the opinion of others, and seek the Lord about His purpose for your life. He will direct you. Because the truth of the matter is… only your Creator knows exactly what you’ve been created to do. He knows the beginning right up until the end of your life. He knows the path that you should take, so trust Him. Ask, seek, knock. And the door will be opened to you.
No matter what happens on your journey to greatness, God is always on your side xx
Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened to you.
