I had coffee yesterday with my very good friend Andy. While we were talking he told me about a bumper sticker he saw while jogging. He so loved it that he took a picture of it. It said - "Those who abandon their dreams will discourage yours." It was copyrighted by Northern Sun Merchandising.
Don't you find that to be true? The people who try to tell you that you can't are probably the same people who are either afraid to try their dreams or who tried but stopped (probably due to fear).
So when someone sounds skeptical or downright negative, thank them for their input, smile and forge ahead. These are YOUR dreams! Pursue them with gusto.
