I’m Building The Life I Dream About & Nothing Can Stop Me

You can’t always get what you want in life — I understand and accept that — but that doesn’t mean I’m ever going to stop fighting for what I know I deserve. It’s up to me to put myself out there and demand the very best from myself, those around me and from life as a whole.

  1. I’m determined to reach my Goals. It’s frustrating when it feels like people are trying to undermine my ambition and capabilities because they’re intimidated by my strength. However, that doesn’t deter me from putting 110% effort into everything I do. I work every day to prove the haters wrong and set a new standard for myself. I know what I’m capable of and I’m determined to reach my potential.
  2. I Know I’m Special — I Shouldn’t Have To Prove It. Especially in relationships, it can be frustrating when you make strides to make your partner happy while he only occasionally bothers to make even the bare minimum of effort. I’m done dating men who expect me to prove myself to them. I know I’m worth the time and effort; the question is, are they?
  3. There Are Too Many People In This World Unhappy With The Way Their Lives Turned Out. I’ve seen far too many people regretting past mistakes and wishing they’d followed their dreams when they were young and full of ambition. Once you reach a certain age, it gets harder and harder to go after what you’ve always dreamed of (though I like to believe it’s never actually too late). Why shouldn’t I just do it now? I don’t want to wake up in 20 years and wonder what I did with the last two decades.
  4. Anything Is Possible. Seems cliche, but it’s true. The whole world is out there to explore, so why shouldn’t I go out there and soak up every last bit of it I can while I’m still young? Every day is a new beginning and there’s never a bad time to change my direction and go after what I’m truly passionate about.
  5. The More People Doubt Me, The More Persistent I Become. There are a lot of negative people in the world who will tell me that I’m not smart enough or strong enough, but I say screw that. What do they know about my life? I don’t let people’s doubts deter me from achieving what I’ve set out to accomplish. I let their hate fuel my success.
  6. I’m A Grown Woman With Wants And Needs Like Everyone Else. Seems obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people forget that I’m a unique human being who can’t be replicated. Each one of us has aspirations that motivate us to wake up and go to work every day. We deserve to feel fulfilled with our lives; we’re only given one, after all.
  7. I Have Role Models Who Show Me Hard Work Pays Off. They are living proof that fighting for what I deserve works as long as I make sure to not let anyone get in my way. It can be easy to fall off the path and reconsider what I want in life, but it’s never too late to get right back on track to finding genuine, everlasting happiness.
  8. I Make The Most Of What I’ve Been Given. Shouldn’t everyone? Not everyone is as privileged as I am, which makes me that much more determined to put my education to good use. I have learned far too much to let it all go to waste. I want to look back 20 years from now and smile at everything I’ve accomplished.
