Today I want to share with you a great poem I read in a book. I hope you enjoy it.
Be Deaf when Someone Says You Can’t
Be deaf when someone says you cannot do it!
Be deaf when someone says it is impossible!
Be deaf when anyone tries to put limits on you!
For these people who make efforts to limit you and suggest that
you cannot fulfill your dreams are dangerous people.
These people have given up on their dreams
and seek to convince you to do the same.
And do not be confused by them when they suggest
that they are only trying to help you!
Help is not what they offer.
What they really seek to do is have you join the ranks of slaves,
the apathetic, and the hopeless.
Be deaf to all of them.
I really enjoyed this one and it opened my eyes to the fact that it is true! People at all stages of your life will try to discourage you or stop you from achieving your goals. They fear your success because they have given up on theirs. They want to keep you at the same level as them so you don’t advance. Don’t let them, especially if you believe deeply in the goals and dreams you are chasing.
Be deaf to the critics!
