The Real Reason They Are Beating You Down So Damn Hard.

They can’t break you if you won’t bend far enough.
They can’t make you do what they want you to do if you decide you’re going to do it your way.

They can’t brainwash you with their ideas if you have ideas of your own that are big enough.

They can’t make you stop if you just put your head down and keep moving past the obstacles standing in your way.

They can’t hurt you if you just ignore their harsh words and unfair criticism.

They can’t make you be like them.

But they’ll try everything in their power to make you feel like that’s what you should be doing.

They will criticize you. Make fun of you. Abuse you. Tell you that your ideas are stupid. That your dreams are foolish and naive.

They will pretend like they are better than you. The truth is they’re just trying to break you down.

Trying to take the fight out of the dog. And the dog out of the fight.

But they can’t do either of those if you won’t let them. They don’t have power over you unless you give it to them.

They can’t keep you down unless you decide to stay down.

The truth is that you will always be surrounded by small minded people who make it their mission to rise up in life by kicking people underneath them.

And if they think you’re better than them — smarter, or more determined to achieve the dreams you talk about — they won’t feel inspired to work hard to themselves.

They will try to beat you down. Break you.

They are determined to stop you from doing what you do best — being a winner. Remember that the next time you feel like you can’t catch a break.

Maybe that’s just life way of reminding you but you’re still a legitimate threat.

If you were ordinary, no one would care.

You would fit right in.

But because you’ve chosen to be extraordinary, you’ve enraged the zealots of mediocrity. And they will do anything they can to make sure you stay in your place and achieve absolutely nothing.

Think about that the next time you are ready to give up.

They can’t take the fight out of you if you won’t let them.

  1. This is the story of my life.
    We used to have saying “We’re not going to let them beat us.”

    And you know, “They” still haven’t . At least not those of us who survived.

  5. Sounds like what the Jews were trying to do to the Germans in the 1920’s and 30’s. Did you read that post-WWI surrender terms? It was illegal for the brightest Europeans (the Germans) to eat three meals a day. Hitler confronted that siege head on… on January 30, 1933.
