As a child, I never had anyone tell me I couldn’t do or be anything.
As a teenager, no one hindered my dreams.
In college, anything was possible.
Now, as a new adult, I am less sure of myself.
Is anything really possible? Can dreams turn into goals and goals turn into reality? Will I ever actually accomplish the desires of my heart?
Nothing is possible. I’m too young with too little experience for any one to take me seriously. No one wants to hear what I have to say. I can’t encourage, help, or motivate anyone because I am nothing. My goals are nothing. They sit stagnant, like a never-ending pause button, waiting to happen but always out of reach – wanting to take action so badly but nothing will ever happen.
I am nothing.
My dreams are nothing.
I’m not good enough.
These are my daily thoughts. These are the lies I tell myself.
These lies build up, one by one, building a wall between me and my dreams. And it’s getting bigger every day.
I use my age as an excuse. I’m too young. No one will listen or take me seriously.
What is your lie? What is your excuse? Money, Age, Experience? All of the above?
Now, I use the word lie because it’s a false assumption of the current situation. I am young, which is true. You may lack experience. You may lack funding. These may all be true.
But we use these “lies” as convenient excuses to keep us from ever actually taking action.
Don’t build your wall of lies any bigger. See your worth. You can do and accomplish anything you work hard for.
This wall’s name is Fear. Let’s knock it down. I will start today. I know you can too.
