There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can’t. What you’ve got to do is turn around and say, ‘watch me.’ ~Layne Beachley
I’ve not had a lot of people who have told me that I can’t do something. I was raised by two strong women who instilled in me that with hard word, determination and walking with God, I could do anything. I’ve always believed that. It has helped me so much.
But every now and then I’ll meet someone who tries to make me doubt myself or someone will send me an email telling me that “You’re not all that.” It’s really, really good that my mother and grandmother were so strong. And they made us girls that way too. They knew those days would come where we’d have to rely on our backbones.
When I get those negative vibes from people, I just think, “Watch Me.”
It really feels good when you set your mind on something and you finally achieve the results you wanted. Just like with anything in life, obstacles and adversity will always be there and your true backbone test is how you react to those obstacles. Will you give up or push forward?
I choose to push forward. To be resilient and to make the naysayers watch me.
Blessings to you!
