I feel like I've been asleep my whole life and just recently
woke up to realise I'm in the biggest race of my life against time.
I never really had control of my life. It felt just like watching your life
unfold right in front you and not having the power or ability to influence
most of the scenarios that played out . For the longest I'd always accepted
things just the way they were, eventually I realised that things will only remain
the same if I accepted it to be that way. I'm on a journey now to prove to my old self
and others around me that the only thing stopping anyone from achieving a lot is
themselves and not the government, the economy, good luck or the lack of it.
Sometimes I feel like I'm deceiving my self and that with time I'll eventually fall back into my old pattern
of thinking. I hate that feeling, it makes me feel like my dreams and aspirations are not valid.
But I know it's just my old self talking. So if there are people on here who could relate to this post,
I hope you're doing all you can to keep ahead in this race. I hope your self doubts don't consume you
and render your dreams shattered. You will win this race even if it ends up being a marathon.

Congrats on getting past the past the first stage to success now a tough road of staying motivated and protecting your dream lies ahead.

The trick is to keep moving nometer what! your biggest challenge is other humans who desire to kill your dream and want you to end up like them. assholes and haters are your biggest opsticles. make sure to stay away from those. good luck!!

Hi,
I can really relate to what you are saying.
One of the things I can recommend is to join or create a mastermind group in order to be around other people that support encourage and help each other along the road.
It's good to keep a positive view and to remember that most people are good people, not out to get you or anything and mostly just having struggles of their own.
All the best
Elisha

Depending on what industry you operate in it might make sense to find people in the same or close areas or to create your own group with people that you know in that industry. I've seen that there are also some threads here on the forum for mastermind groups, you could also start your own.
