Doubters, Haters & Realists

"The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.
" ~ Frank Lloyd Wright
Those of you who have kids will understand. Those who have dreams will understand. Those of you who have hopes, aspirations, ideals and something that resonates deep in your very soul will understand. There are people out there that are dead. They're the walking dead. Their dreams have died, their spirit has been broken and the twinkling stars of possibilities have been extinguished from their lives. They will tell you why things can't be done. They believe they are doing you a favor by playing devils advocate. They share their wisdom and experience about difficulties, challenges and the "knowledge" they have of the huge likelihood of failure. They are the realists. They're smart, opinionated and forceful in what they advocate. They tell you why it won't work and why it's better not to try. They advise against things. Listen up people - Those of you who have dreams, aspirations, ideals, hopes and something deep within your soul - Listen Up and Listen Good. Get away from those people. Run - Don't Walk. People who tell you what can't be done, why things won't work, why you shouldn't go for it are not helping you - they are hurting you, harming you, and they are killing you. Find people that help you with solutions to realize your dreams. Find people that tell you it's difficult but you can do it with belief, action and discipline. They are the ones you want to talk to. People that say - "If you want it bad enough anything is possible" They are the ones you need to surround yourself with. The can't crowd can only hurt you. The doubters, the haters & the realists may fuel your drive to prove them wrong but they can't help you in any other way.

Find and surround yourself with believers.
