I must have read almost 1/3rd of all the motivational websites on the internet that motivates you not to give up on your dreams.
I wondered what does it take to write a 500-word posts on why you should not give up – a laptop and someone who has great writing skills.
Thomas Edison is a famous example for all inspirational posts. They tell you how he tried 10,000 times until he got it right. How many would have remembered Edison had he never succeeded ?
How does it feel for someone to go through the journey of uncertainty, hopelessness, adversity, pain and loneliness ?
One should ask those who are going through that journey. But who would spend a moment to talk to people who just need that little bit of support to keep going ?
Our society chases celebrities and successful people. When an entrepreneur succeeds, it’s not only media but everyone who did not believe in his/her idea will inquire about his well being.
The harsh truth is that society does not respect people who have failed. It doesn’t matter how many inspirational posts they share on social media, these people are neither going to try anything different nor support people who want to try.
And that is one of the major reason nobody wants to venture on their own – the fear of how society will treat them if they failed.
For those who did not care about society or what the world thinks of them, they went into their own world, cut themselves off from friends and went on to built great products.
They live in constant fear and insecurity. Many will hate to admit that it is this fear and rejection from society that makes them even more determined not to give up.
In a way, the society that rejects you if you fail are the very motivators for anyone pursuing their dreams.
Let the naysayers be. Thank them for inspiring you to never give up your dreams.
