We all have the opportunity to succeed in pretty much any avenue if we believe hard enough.
When I was a little boy all I wanted to do was be an artist. I would pencil images from memory and take them to school the next day and kids would swear I traced it.
No one could break my spirit or deter me from my goal of becoming an artist. I knew it was gonna happen and I knew nothing else. As I got older I allowed myself to stray away from that dream. I started to doubt the outcome. I stopped believing that's what I really wanted. I started to go after fancy, shiny things and stopped drawing altogether. I went after the instant gratification and less in the potential of a lasting career in what I was meant to do.
I started to listen to the people who didn't share my vision. I thought their opions mattered. Boy was I wrong. I had support. I had motivation but I still thought I needed the approval of evryone else.
When you're faced with a challenge don't let anybody deter you. If you want it, keep believing in it even when you fail.
KEEP AFTER IT NOW MATTER WHAT.
