Believing in yourself is a key ingredient for success, but let's be honest - sometimes it can be difficult.
When you have a dream, or you aspire to a life beyond what society deems 'normal', you're guaranteed push back. There will be those who think you'll fail. There will be others who will tell you outwardly it's a terrible idea. And then there will be the diamonds in the rough, the people who encourage you. Who tell you anything is possible.
But it starts with you believing in yourself. Don't put your dreams on hold because of someone else's opinion.
Someone wise once said - "Remember that those who have succeeded will encourage you, and those that have failed will not. But the most important thing is that you keep believing in yourself."
