Are You Listening to the Right Person?

“Every step of the way in life, there have been people that said that I can’t do things. Said I couldn’t ride a bicycle. There have been people that said that I couldn’t live on my own. Couldn’t’ get a good job and support myself or I couldn’t go to college and graduate. I don’t listen to much to people when they tell me I can’t do something. There’s not a whole lot that’s going to stand in my way.” -Richie Parker

I’m pretty sure there are people that have not reached their potential, did not even start the journey towards their goals or dreams because of something someone else said.

When I was in the 7th grade, I walked up to the girls basketball coach and asked if I could try out. He looked at me and told me “NO” and said I was too skinny. TRUE STORY. I went home crying and devastated. My story could have stopped right there and you would not be reading this blog today.



Reaching a Goal.

Achieving a Dream.




People will tell you NO.

Family will say it can’t be done.

Friends will not understand.

However, it still boils down to YOU. What YOU believe. What YOU TELL YOURSELF.

The young man in the video below had all the reasons to believe that he couldn’t ride a bike, drive a car or live on his own. But he BELIEVED HE COULD!

Don’t let anyone discourage you from what you want to do. Keep It Moving!!!
