They Don’t Get To Decide.

When does your dream become delusion? Who decides when genius is just insanity?

If it’s not you, then who?

You don’t have to let other people’s opinions define you.  Their hate and pain doesn’t need to bias your creativity and drive.

Small visions and petty mindsets don’t help your mission or further your cause.

They just hold you back.  They make you doubt your purpose and passion.

Success looks a lot like failure up until you break through the finish line.

So if you’re letting the opinions of others dictate what you do and how you feel about your life, you are destined to be miserable no matter howmuch you accomplish.

They don’t get to decide.

You do.  You decide what is right for you and what is wrong.  You decide how long you should keep trying.

You decide how important your goals are to you.

You might be called crazy or stupid or clueless.  But so were a lot of other amazing people throughout history.  People who didn’t didn’t give up on themselves.

That’s still the secret today.
