On this journey there are going to be many people that will offer their opinions as to what you should do with and for your life. Granted, some may be role models and mentors, but others will just share or offer their opinions without you asking for it.
Don’t take it personal! Stay on the course to accomplish your dream. It’s yours.
You believe in you! Steve Jobs was once told he didn’t have a good idea, Oprah was once told in Baltimore that she wasn’t a good fit, Jennifer Hudson didn’t win American Idol, my first supervisor in radio said I would never make it in a major market, Opinions are like “Butt Holes” everyone has one,
I think ! Live your dream, do you and go after it with a vengeance.
It aint personal baby, do you and good luck, I wish you well.
