In their caution – Find your courage.
In their doubts – Find your resolve.
In their warnings – Find your voice and chart your own journey.
When you want to leave your good paying job because you want to go back to school to learn something else, they say, ‘That’s crazy. Stay at that good job.’
When you finish school and go into business, they say, ‘That’s crazy! Stay in school.’
When you start your business and you are going to use a different model from everyone else, they say, ‘That’s crazy! You will never succeed. You have to do what others do, just do it a little better. Don’t be too different.’
When moving forward with your plan and purpose, people who mean you well that you love and trust, who don’t feel your fire or see your vision will try and discourage you. They offer their opinions of caution, doubt, warning – because they don’t want you to fail or fall. They want you to succeed. They are speaking from where THEY SIT!
In sports arenas, concerts, church, auditoriums, even though everyone may be looking in the same direction, everyone has a different view. Those in the balcony see a different perspective that those in back of the main floor, who see different than those who are in front. They see what they can see.
NOBODY SEES WHAT YOU SEE. These are the moments when you must keep your faith, keep your own counsel and remember that they want the best for you. But no matter what they say what is important is what YOU FIND!
In their caution – Find your courage. In their doubts – Find your resolve. In their warnings – Find your voice and chart your own journey.
