The People Who Aren’t on Your Page
There are a lot of people out there who aren’t on your page. The problem with a lot of you is that you don’t even know what page you’re on. You’re listening to other people who are trying to get you on their page instead of really taking the time to figure out what you want. It’s ok to not know what you want if you’re working to figure it out. It’s not ok to let other people drag you around in the process. Maybe you don’t even really know what your dream is or why it’s your dream? If you’re not really sure about your dream, then you are probably scared to really give everything you have to make your dreams come true? Are you afraid to spend the time to actually figure out what you want? If you’re living someone else’s dream, then that’s a recipe for disaster.
You Know Your Page
If you know what you want, why are you waiting to go live your dream? Are you afraid to actually chase your dream? Is it because you care what someone else thinks about you and you’re trying to make someone else happy? Is it because you are scared someone will call you out for being a “failure” if you don’t do exactly what someone else thinks you should do? If you spend time listening to the haters and the people trying to bring you down or bring you over to their page then you won’t have the time to go out and actually live YOUR life.
I mean lets look at a real life situation. Lets say you wake up and post something on Instagram. You are getting likes and comments on your post. Then you get someone spewing some hate in a comment. You let that comment make you scared to post the next picture, blog or video. Even worse, it makes you hesitant to keep chasing what you want.
Man that’s the wrong way to think about things. If someone is going to take the time to look at your social media and then take the time to throw shade at you, come on lets be real how sad are they? Like really think about that; their life must suck! Don’t let one person or two people keep you from working to achieve your dreams.
Search for the Truth
At the same time, there are a lot of people out there who are telling you all sorts of things. Everyone thinks they are an expert, but most of them have never been there. This makes our job so much harder but so much more rewarding. We don’t want to tell you anything. We want to ask you questions that make you really think about things. Every decision has pros and cons. We won’t tell you what to do. We want you to understand both sides of any decision so that you can make the best one for you.
Make It Happen
If you walk through life actually caring what other people think about you instead of actually living your life then you won’t achieve much. You can’t. There isn’t a place at the top for people who don’t take risks or fail at things! You have to stop listening to the voices around you. You have to be so dialed into what you want to accomplish that you can’t hear anyone else. My fear is that the voice we listen to deep in our soul tells us that we can’t. At some point in your life you’re going to have to confront that voice. You have to overcome that voice no matter what messed up stuff has gone in your life. You have the chance to change your life.
So, what are you going to do about it? How are you going to take steps to change where you are? How are you going to grow as a person? Are you really going to let what someone else thinks or says about you hold you back from achieving the greatness that is inside of you? Remember, it’s only failure if you don’t try!
At Hoops College, we don’t care what page you’re on. We just want you to know your page, and then help you make the most of it.
