Today I'd like to talk about achievements.
Every day, every week, every month, and every year there will be people who will tell you that you can't achieve something. Lots of those times, they will be referring to things that you've always wanted to achieve, they'll talk about what for you might be your "dream". That kinda sucks, doesn't it?
It's fucked up that every time a person comes up with a dream, something they want to do with their life, someone comes and starts telling you that there's not a chance you'll make it true, that no way you can make it true. Why do they say it? I don't know.
Sometimes, their intentions are good - they just want you not to delude yourself.
That's something normal from the people who care about you. Whether you're good or not doing what you want to have success in, having your hopes too high can end up with you being disappointed. That's a chance, I won't deny it.
Nevertheless, there's other thing that might happen. Maybe the person who's telling you you can't achieve your dreams basically doesn't want you to reach your dreams. Why? There are a few possibilities.
That person might be jealous for any reason, they might think you can make true something that they can't, they might see in you a talent that they wish they had... maybe they see you as a rival, or maybe they just don't want to see you success. Hate, jealousy, feeling like a failure themselves... those can be reasons why someone wants you not to success in something.
However, none of those reasons should be a reason for you to be put down. You should keep fighting for your dreams. You should never give up that fight. As a song that I really like says:
"Keep your hopes up high and your head down low"
You have to fight for what you want, but always being honest to the world and to yourself, and all that with modestly, never forget that.
