If you find yourself contemplating whether or not to continue to lean into your potential, especially as you may hit plateaus consider this from Butterworth…
“Why be an average person? All the great achievements of history have been made by strong individuals who refused to consult statistics or to listen to those who could prove convincingly that what they wanted to do, and in fact ultimately did do, was completely impossible.”
When you boil it down, there is always going to be a naysayer + a yaysayer in some way shape or form, internally + externally.
Someone telling you or an obstacle ahead that gives you the reasons to not continue…
Someone or some factor ahead telling you the reasons to continue.
Know that you are a ‘strong individual.’
Sure learn from feedback and be discerning, yet never let an opinion of another reduce you to someone less capable of what you got to offer.
