This is why i go out of my way to encourage and motivate people as much as i can whenever i can.
Sometimes the people who do this, think they are just protecting you, by trying to make you think of the risks, and what you're putting on the line to achieve your dream.
The worst, is when this comes from your nearest and dearest. My hubby does not realize that when he puts up so many questions for me to think through, that he makes me want to give up even before I have taken the first step.
So what I do is, I will try to do my thing until I feel more confident that I won't be swayed. Then I tell him about it.
I strongly believe that it is our own responsibility to protect the first phase of our dream and not to let people influence us otherwise. The second phase, is like a test phase, where we share our dream, and people will put up arguments etc. If we are confident and sure, we would not give up.
