I love this quote that my wonderful friends at The Bodymind Institute posted on their Facebook page yesterday. “Keep away from people who belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that YOU, TOO, can become great.” – Mark Twain
I read once, when you surround yourself with greatness, you can become great.
When you have a great idea and decide to run with it, what is it that drives people to try to put you down and discourage you? We have all had those moments where our loved ones tell us they are trying to look out for our own best interest. My husband was told by a good friend of ours, there comes a point when the student surpasses the master. At this point you must be grateful for what knowledge you have learned, then move on.
Sometimes in life we drift apart from people we were once close with. This can be healthy. Surround yourself with people who love you and allow you to be the person you are destined to be. Do not let someone else’s worry and despair get you down. Rise to the moment and show your inner greatness to the world.
