“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumblebee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”
– Ashley Smith
Don’t wait for people to approve or believe in you before you take action. It is your dream and not theirs; they can’t possibly understand it or grasp it as you do.
Believe me, I understand how it feels when no one gets your dreams and are less than supportive. It is normal to desire those close to you to believe in you and support your dream, but we do not live in a perfect world.
Life is full of complications and often, we live life forward but understand it backward. Most insights come in only after the effects.
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”
– C.S. Lewis
Focus on Your Dreams When Nobody Believes in You
1. Encourage yourself and stay focused– David in the Bible had to encourage himself when people around him were less supportive and it worked for him. Give a try, and start encouraging yourself
2. Stop convincing people to believe in you or dreams – You can use that time to work on your dreams. Be the support you want instead. Sometimes kindness is the only language that works on people.
“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
– Arthur Ashe
3. Be careful how much you’re telling them about your dreams – It can lead to severe discouragement. If those close to you do not believe you can do something, then you may doubt yourself. Regardless of the truth, it can affect you.
4. Connect with like-minded people and network – Be willing to learn and educate yourself.
As creators (Writers, Poets, Artists etc,.) it is common for people around you to assume you’re wasting your time with your creative endeavors. If you write (or paint or dance or sculpt or sing, I suppose), someone will try to make you feel lousy about it. – Stephen King
Decide and weigh all the options for yourself. Find a mentor or study past and present creators to see how they overcame such obstacles.
Your dreams matter because they contribute to your happiness. Keep encouraging yourselves and trust you’re never alone in this process. Stay true to yourself and be the help and support you want in life for others.
Many times you have to believe before it can come to pass…You have to quit looking for the magic and realize that the magic is in you. Carrie Wilkerson
