Never ever think that your journey is written from your past. You always have a choice to change your future! Don’t think that what you study in your early twenties is what you will have to do for the rest of your life. I challenge you to follow your heart. Try, fail and try harder. To be great you need to dare to be different. Go against other peoples opinions and don’t be afraid to hear “I told you so”.  I’ve let other people dictate my choices in life far too often. I’m terrified of failing, I’m scared that it won’t work. And it might not work the first time, but I will keep trying till I get there, cause as long as I’m trying I can not fail!  I was once told I couldn’t follow my dream because I was a girl and girls weren’t supposed to be horse trainers! Guess what, I worked as a horse trainer, a damn good one too! I was told I shouldn’t get my hopes up when I auditioned for acting school. Guess what, I got in on my first try. I was told I couldn’t model, guess what I did that too.  People told me I was just a pretty face, guess what I have a Bachelor in Business. People questioned my fitness dedication, and you know the rest! 

There will always be people telling you that you can’t do it. That the risks are too high, that it’s better to stay safe.  But you need to remember that what they say has nothing to do with you or your ability to be great. I used to think I was my own worst enemy and I am, but only because I let other people into my head. Because I used to (and sometimes still do) let other people affect my judgement.  Now that I can filter it out, I’m more determined than ever to go my own way!

Don’t let people put you down or make you doubt yourself. Whatever you can dream or picture, you can create. It will take blood, sweat and tears to get there. Long days and little sleep, lost friends and judgements. But like they say “First they laugh, then they follow”.  And one of the most important things, surround yourself with likeminded people. People who wants success, who you can admire and learn from.
