When it comes to going after one’s dream there will always be people who have an opinion about it. The views that come from our inner circle of family and friends are the ones that unknowingly have the most influence on what we do. No matter if their opinion is good or bad the influence of others is one of the main dream killers.
Opinions that are negative stick with people more than good opinions do. The negativity can grow inside people and causes people to question themselves and what they do. Before they know it they now have the same beliefs as the person that gave their opinion and the dream ends.
I have a friend that is passionate about having a career in the music industry. For some time many people, including his family and friends, have told him that he needs to be more practical about his career decision. As a result he has questioned his passion and almost given up on it. He later decided to take the opinions at face value and seriously pursue music. He now has a growing career in music that is turning into being full-time.
People will always have their opinions on how one’s life should go. The killing part is how those opinions influence the person that is trying to go after something. One has to decide if they are going to be held down by other’s beliefs or go after what they want regardless of other peoples views.
