I am alive challenge day #77 - Do not be quick to give up hope



I know what it's like to be criticized for having big goals and big dreams. I know what a laugh is. I know what it is like to be told that you have found a real job. I know what it's like to have your family tell you that you are crazy, that you love material things, or that you love money, and that all these things are bad.

I know how frustrating it is to want to build something and then go on social media and write about it and get two likes, and I know how lonely it is when you hear criticism like, "Why do you want to do that?"

All of these are signs that you are on the right track. You have to work hard, work hard, and take this seriously. There is no reason to ask such questions, which is why they are a good indication that you are on the right track.

All of these criticisms and questions will come from family members, and for good reason. I know these people should believe in you, and I know they should encourage you, and I know that your peers and co-workers, your friends and family, and all these groups who put you down should not do that.

It’s bad, and I won’t protect them, but I want you to understand that this is part of the agreement. Most of these people are jealous. Many of these people are insecure. They do not have their own organized house and do not want to see anyone else get what they can.

I did not trust anyone to find me here. This is what is required, so prepare your mind, to understand that that is part of the agreement. If you are going to have big dreams, you are going to have a lot of criticism, too.

If you have big dreams, you will have big haters. You will have a lot of pressure. If you are going to have big dreams and you are going to feel lonely, those are just the things that come with the field, and if you can't deal with those things, then guess what? You should not even go out and try to do it.


This is part of the process. It’s part of the recipe, it’s part of what you’re trying to be, and as you go along and as you get better and better at what you do, it becomes clear that it will be you. he says he will.

All those who say all this will change the song. Let me tell you what they will say: "I'm proud of you, brother." "I have always believed in you from the beginning." "You're a man." That's what it's going to be.

Absolutely spot on @icon-bassey it is easy for people to tear ideas down so you just have to consider the sources of the hate because sometimes it is fear and lack of understanding when it comes to family and friends.

With some people it maybe jealous feelings that they can not do the same or it maybe they just don't want you to succeed for whatever reason misery loves company 🤣

Others it maybe that they just can not dream as big and have accepted their lot in life.

When people are genuine

When i got off living on the streets (rough childhood) i had a dream to start my own business.

Everyone was telling me just get a job.

I met a guy who showed me that instead of getting a job i should go into business for myself and ignore everone else.

He then taught me how?

I worked with him as an equal on his contracts, then when i was ready to do my own he helped me get set up and even provided me work when i was low on contracts.

He helped me go from hopeless to financially self sufficient in less than a year at a time i most needed it.

Have a blessed day my friend haters going to hate simple as that 🤣
