Non-Believer

Do you want everyone to believe in you even though you don’t believe in yourself? Do you want people to support you even though you haven’t done anything to earn that support?

Do you think the world doesn’t notice you for who you are? Do you think the world cares about the way you talk about your dreams and goals? Do you think everyone else doesn’t see you procrastinating instead of being dedicated to your dreams?

Sure, you can whine and moan about it and get some fake sympathy from fake friends who’ll laugh at you behind your back.

But…

Isn’t it better to work every single minute of every single day to improve yourself? To feel good about yourself? One hard thing after another, that’s how you earn confidence…

And, guess what?

The world changes its opinion of you the day after you do.

Never forget that.

Those hurtful things the non-believers tell you, those things hurt because they are likely true. You wish they weren’t, but…

Next time someone calls you fat, lazy, unmotivated, stupid, work twice as hard to prove them wrong. To prove yourself right, to step outside of the image that they have superimposed and become who you know you are, the true self that you have been hiding for long enough.

So, who do you want to be?

What are your goals?

What is is that you want to become?

And do you really need someone else to take you by the hand and show you your own potential?

Really?

Learn to enjoy the struggle, to appreciate the climb, not just to daydream about reaching the top of the mountain.

And remember, always remember, that it is not the climb that breaks you, but the pebble in your shoe. Not the dogs that bark along the road, but you stopping every single time to throw rocks at them.

So…

Who do you want to be? And why aren’t you doing your best to become that?

  1. Love this. A few years ago I realised that I wasn’t everything that I wanted to be, and that I really wasn’t living up to my full potential. In order to achieve these things, I needed to follow a path of self discovery. I am now so much closer to my goal, and my vision has broadened – because once we achieve small things, there simply HAS to be more.
    It’s a daily ‘job’ though. It requires a lot of time and hard work to continuously surround yourself with resources to help you grow, and stay on the path you should be on.
    But the rewards sure bring fantastic feelings!
    Thank you for this post! :)

  2. Its funny I came across this today cause I was just thinking that I need to improve on my on self confidence and actually appreciating and loving myself and my own work. Like, its not someone else putting me down, its my own doubtful thoughts. Hard to shake those :/ But! As you say, gotta keep going and improving!
