Never Going to Make Anything…

Have you ever heard this said to you, or about you?

Your never going to make anything of your life?

I’ve heard this much too often said about me, and to my face over the years. The first when I was a dreamer and eleven years old, being told I would go nowhere, do nothing and never make anything of myself. Hard to take, and harder to take if you knew who said it to me…

I wont lie every time I hear this, even now it stops me in my tracks, takes the wind out of my sails and makes me double guess the direction I am heading in.

The thing is…

It makes me much more determined…

I’m not really that smart, I suffer from comprehension problems and have to think my words before I can speak them or you wont understand me. Everything I have done in my life is to prove that I can make something of it, that you can achieve what your dream if you work hard to get it.

To every one who tears someone else down to make themselves feel better I ask you this. What have you done? What are you doing? Are you going to sit there and rot in your box or are you going to go out there and fight for your dream… Or are you going to keep making an excuse to why you sit on them. Your time is and always will be right now. If you build it they will come…

After all, I’m not that good at anything I do, I’m just very stubborn…
