“Don’t let disappointment blind you to potential.” – Lilly Singh
I’ve been told by a life coach, a therapist & a doctor that I cannot pursue my dreams because of what’s not just on my resume, but also because they think she’s “delusional” & has “unrealistic” goals.
I was definitely disappointed by what they said to me. Also, I was upset because they act like they know me because they are a psychological professional. Just because they are, does not mean they know me & does not give them the right to say such harsh words to someone as young as me. It is unprofessional.
After I have moved on from what they said, I realized that I am better than those words & their ideas behind it. They are not better than me. In fact, I live a different life that they can’t deal with. My life isn’t for them.
I did not let disappointment blind me to my potential to be the best I can be in my own world. In fact, I will always believe in me & my dreams for myself. That means I’m halfway there. Also, I see my potential as a dancer to be the best I can be. As a blogger, I see my potential to follow through to my potential as a fashion stylist.
Btw, I am being completely honest & personal in my blog posts to show a side of me that not everyone gets to see. Plus, it shows how inspired I am to go for what I want.
This post is inspired by Lilly Singh’s book, “How to be a Bawse.” I am doing a #90DayChallenge for myself that presents what I have learned from her book.
