“The biggest mistake you can make is listening to people who’ve given up on their dreams telling you to give up on yours.”

~Umair Hague


As you continue to reflect on your accomplishments for 2016 and your New Year goals, it can be easy to get caught up in others’ negativity about their own circumstances and decide that your dreams are too difficult to pursue.  There are innumerable examples of people in far worse plights that whatever you may be facing that have found the inner strength and taken advantage of kindnesses of others to take positive steps in their lives.  While you may very well be facing an extremely challenging situation, it is likely that your circumstances are more annoying than fatal.  The key to move forward toward your dreams is simply to keep moving forward – regardless of challenges and naysayers.  A lot of people around you may have given up or lost hope.  Don’t let their attitude infect yours.  And as you move forward, and express a hopeful and positive outlook, you may just inspire others to do the same who just need to see your example.
