Sometimes we have to change, go new ways or just want to get out of our dreary everyday life. We are driven by a vision or a dream, but we do not dare to take the first step. We limit ourselves. Again, and again we make new attempts and fail already at the beginning.
We cannot please everyone
What are the reasons for these failures? Often, we want to please everyone, not cause a stir or confront other people. However, one thing is important! We cannot please everyone. Here and there we will face a lack of understanding or will disappoint people. But that should not stop us from fulfilling our dreams.
What is your limit?
The first steps are often the hardest, but once we get started, everything will be much easier. We should never rely solely on other people’s opinions. Our own experiences, failures and mishaps are the building blocks of our own lives. There will never be a life without mistakes or regrets because such a life would be boring, monotonous and without any personal development.
For that reason, we should transform our wishes and dreams into reality. The best time to start is now. Start living!
“Don’t let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It’s your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don’t let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others’ prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being. Adventure.”
