Resist the efforts of others to make you do what they want you to do or be what they want you to be.
If you share your hopes and dreams with others and instead of supporting you, they put you down or make a joke, it could be because your dreams threaten them.
Your ability to believe that you deserve more may make them feel uncomfortable. It takes a lot to want more out of life—to leave your comfort zone. If you go higher, it will remind some people of what they haven’t done or what they are unwilling to do. Everyone is not going to understand you.
You must press forward with an assurance that you don’t have to justify yourself to anyone. Walk in your gifts and talents and don’t try to be anyone else.
When you accept that you are different and you walk in your calling, I have no doubt that when your dreams finally come true, when your success is seen by the world, some of those very same people will applaud the loudest, pretending they’ve supported you all along.
You will come to finally understand that everyone cannot go where God wants to take you. Your journey to your purpose will require periods when it is only you and God.
