Why is ambition such a dirty word?
You know what I mean... when you have the big dream that you’re so excited about and you decide to share it with others and here are their responses... ”That’s pretty ambitious dontcha think?”
“Don’t put all your eggs on one basket.”
“Yikes, that’s a big change.”
”That’s great but don’t get your hopes up.” Or my personal favorite:
“Do you have a fall back?” Now, your big dream is teeny tiny because guess what... you believe them. You believe the people who don’t believe IN YOU? That’s pretty backwards, right?
All those things above, were said to me. Multiple times, with a couple more awful ones thrown in. The difference? I didn’t listen. I didn’t let people make my dreams become small, in fact, I don’t even have a fall back. No Plan B here. I’m in this dream, all or nothing.
Ambition is not a bad thing. Sure, it can be scary or intimidating! But being brave isn’t being fearless, it’s showing up anyways. It’s putting your big girl panties on, getting rid of your wish bone, and growing a backbone instead.
So instead of being afraid of your BIG dreams and listening to the people who are too small minded to get on board with you, JUMP and freaking SPRINT to those ambitions while surrounding yourself with people who will only support you and push you to be better for yourself.
It is your job to show up for your own life and fight for your own dreams.♥️
