When you have a gut feeling to follow your passion or your instinct about something, you will find that many people will tell you not to do it and point out all the risks and negatives to why you shouldn’t.
I remember when I began sharing my story at the beginning of starting Free Your Mind and well meaning people asked me, ‘are you sure you want to do that’ ‘are you going to get a real job’ ’ you dont have any money’ and I continued on because I knew I had found my purpose and it would help someone else.
After years of being misunderstood I knew it would also help those who misunderstand me to finally understand.
Some still don’t understand LOL but hey, the information’s out there if they wish to know better. 🙂 Until this day after running free your mind I still have family members who ask me if I have got a job yet which I always find so funny!
This post came to me after having a conversation with someone who was feeling discouraged because people were putting them off following their instinct and passions. Many will mean well because they worry about you, others just put you off because they don’t have the guts to do the same.
Remember this: Many people will NOT understand your journey and that’s ok because it is exactly that; YOUR journey and not theirs. They cant see what you see and don’t feel what you feel.
Don’t be discouraged by naysayers, do your thing stay focused, and do it for you!
