“The only thing that stops you from reaching your dream, is you.” -Jindavil
Keep this in mind whenever you are trying to figure out why you have not reached the goals and dreams you have envisioned for yourself. It is easy to point the finger at other people and things, but the reality is that nobody can affect or stop you unless you give them the power to. In addition, whenever you find yourself doubting your own goals and dreams, it is very likely that you will stop yourself from realizing them.
Growing up, I had a cousin who had dreamed of becoming a wrestler one day. We would watch wrestling, talk about wrestling, and even practiced the moves from time to time. As of today, he has not yet realized his potential of becoming that wrestler he had envisioned. It is easy to blame family members who may have doubted him, or the circumstances that he was faced with, but the reality is that he stopped himself by not taking control his life and doing the things that were necessary to become the wrestler that he wanted to be.
When you do not let your doubts and fears get in the way, you can achieve anything that you want in life. You hold the key to determining if your dreams will ever come true. Let’s remember that only you can stop your dreams, but it is also only you that can make your dreams become a reality.
