We live on a planet populated by over seven billion human beings: seven billion opinions, seven billion beliefs, seven billion ideas, seven billion mindsets, and seven billion agendas. So no matter how strong-willed, opinionated, or independent you are, it is impossible to live out your life or make progress on your dreams without being affected in some way by the opinions of others.
As you write down your goals, set deadlines for your dreams, and put in the work necessary to make your visions real, there will most definitely be others who don’t think your dreams hold value. There will most certainly be people who not only doubt your ability to be successful, but also question whether your goals are worth chasing in the first place. Some of your closest family and friends may even pull you aside to talk you out of spending any more time going after your dream.
With so many different voices trying to convince you that their way is right and your way is wrong, it is super important for you to dedicate some time out of your day to repeating this affirmation: “The Opinions Of Others Will Not Sway Me. I Will Live My Dreams.”
Repeating this affirmation will help you convince yourself that living your dreams is a must, not an option. It will give you the conviction you need to stay true to your path to greatness—even when everyone around you is telling you to choose a different one.
