For as long as I could remember people have doubted me. They’ve said all the things I couldn’t do or wouldn’t be able to do. I never understood why, but it was my driving factor. I had this watch me attitude and a middle finger in the air as I did all the things people thought I couldn’t do. Then I went on to do more and more. Eventually the doubt stopped bothering me and I started doing things for myself. I became ambitious.
I am sincerely thankful for all the people that doubted me. Because of them I have accomplished everything I set out to do and then some. I focused on my goals and crushed them. I worked my butt off and never gave up. I really started believing in myself and what I am capable of. I became determined. Strong. Focused. Ambitious. I was thriving because people doubted me and I wanted nothing but to prove them wrong. It made me the crazy, ambitious, go getter I am today. I don’t need people doubting me to accomplish what I set out to do. Getting my driving force the way I did probably wasn’t the best way, but hey it worked and I’m thankful for that.
Honestly when I started writing this, I didn’t know what I was going to say. I was mad, sad, angry, frustrated, and heartbroken. I couldn’t believe what was happening was actually happening. There’s nothing I can do. It’s out of my hands and I hate it. I will persevere and do what I’ve always set out to do. No one is in control of me, my actions, my life, my future except me. Life is full of haters, doubters, and people constantly trying to tear you down. It’s hard. You just have to be bigger than anything they can say to you. Today I wasn’t. Today they broke me. I cried and I got up more determined than I’ve ever been. I will keep doing me and you keep doing you boo.
You see when you set out to do something ambitious – go to college, start a business, a blog, podcast, a new career- the only person that can see your vision, your goal, how you picture it all working out is you. Everyone on the outside doesn’t get it. They can’t see what you see and sometimes that means you get the short end of the stick. People doubting you because they don’t see what you see. People hating what you’re doing because they don’t understand or think it’s dumb. That’s hard. You can try with all your might to not listen to what they’re saying, but in the back of your mind it’s always there. This is when you’re in your prime. When all the good things are going to start happening for you. Keep going. Keep believing in yourself. You’ve got this.
You see I am unstoppable. Why am I unstoppable? Because I choose to be. I choose to be ambitious. I choose to keep going. I choose to keep my vision and follow my dreams. I choose to wake up every morning and keep grinding and hustling to get to where I want to be. I choose to push past the haters and doubters and persevere. I choose to not give up on myself. I choose determination. I choose to focus on me and my successes. I choose to celebrate others successes with them and not feel bad if I’m not there yet. I choose to be unstoppable because no matter where you are in life or how big or small you are, someone is always going to try to stop you.
The people that doubt you aren’t always trying to stunt you in any area of life. Sometimes they just don’t realize how strong, ambitious, and capable you are. Whatever it is you’re doing, wherever you are in life, keep going. Remember who you are doing it for. Remember why you are doing it. Remember your vision. Keep your head up. Dance or sing or cry out the anger and frustration, collect yourself and keep going. Is one bad thing someone has to say worth you quitting? No. Don’t give up on yourself. Be that unstoppable force you need to be to make your dreams come true or live the life you want. You are absolutely worth it.
