“Every time I step onto the stage, it’s not only proving to the audience that I’m capable but to myself.”-Misty Copeland
I don’t know about all of you, but throughout my life I’ve been told I can’t do things. I’ve been told I wasn’t good enough. Some people might take people saying these things and go down a destructive path. However; most of my life I have used the hateful things people have said about me and proved them wrong.
Some people might wonder how I’ve found motivation. And I just have to admit much of it comes from wanting to prove people wrong. When I was first losing weight for example I would just think about the names people had called me. When I did this I found I could push myself harder. Especially when exercising. I could hold on longer because of my strive to prove those people wrong. I would also notice I could stop myself from eating bad food choices by using this method as well.
Today I want you all to think about something negative someone said to you and use your energy to prove them wrong. Now this being said they are already wrong about you. Their mean words do not define you. What I’m trying to say is use it to fuel your fire. Use their negative energy and turn it into something positive.
You can look throughout history and you will see that about all the greatest names that ever existed were told they couldn’t do something or were told they weren’t enough. Instead of going into a sea of self pity though they used it as fuel to do something absolutely incredible.
If you are feeling down about what people have said or how they have treated you just keep in mind that most of the greatest felt that same way. But like them you have to make a decision. Are you going to let it defeat you or are you going to use it to do great things? The choice is yours lovelies! Just know you deserve all the success in the world and don’t just prove to others you can do it…prove it to yourself!!
Sorry this blog is short today everyone. I’m on such a lack of sleep right now haha.
