Wouldn’t it be great if every time we had an awesome idea or felt led to do something amazing, all of our family and friends lined up to support us and cheer us on?
Unfortunately that isn’t real life for most of us…not even close!
But hey…so what???
Some of the most dynamic people to ever walk the Earth were told over and over again that they couldn’t achieve what they wanted to accomplish. If success was easy, more people would have it. If the road was well-travelled, the destination wouldn’t be so sacred. It’s work. It takes determination, a go-getter attitude and a bit of what most people would view as insanity (having the faith to take risks).
They’ve told you you’re too young… or too old, too this, too that, too ____. We’ll there’s got to be “the youngest/oldest, etc. person to ever _____________________ .” Why can’t that person be you?
I like to say it this way: “It’s not over until you sit down.” Even if you get knocked down on your journey to making the vision a reality, it’s not TKO unless you stay down.
There will be disappointments and annoying people that get in the way. But you know that already, so act accordingly when they reveal themselves to you.
You are your own best cheerleader. Your inner voice of confidence and resilience has to be louder than the others.
Now that we’ve had this pep talk, go and do great things with those gifts of yours!

Your purpose is tied to who you ARE, not who you want to be at some point in the future. Life is short…start somewhere, but start!
