People Will Try To Crap On Your Dreams; Don’t Let Them

When I first started blogging I had no clue what I was doing or what blogging was all about.  What I did know was that I wanted to make a difference.   I wanted to spread my net far and wide and have thousands of people read my page.   I set my goals based on follower numbers, primarily setting my aim on the types of numbers that a few other big blogs had-Harsh Reality, Don Charisma and The Public Blogger.

These blogs had tens of thousands of followers and I wanted to be in their league.  I remember telling a few guys I know about my vision and they said I shouldn’t expect much because most blogs fail and very few ever get more than a few hundred followers. I actually had other bloggers tell me the same thing.  They never said I was crazy to think big, but I could tell from their tone that they thought I was a newbie speaking like a newbie.  Basically they were saying, “Good luck, but it’s probably not going to happen.”

What’s my point?  I am exactly where I had hoped I would be at this point.  Don’t allow what others say to deter you from your vision.  Don’t let other people’s negativity  limit you. Don’t allow yourself to live in the box others build for you.

Visionaries are deemed to be crazy by “normal” people.  Don’t settle.

  1. Back seven or eight years ago, I was working on my writing. One of my friend’s boyfriends said that I’d never be published. All I could think of was “Watch me!”
    I see him around town sometimes, a sad little man who never got anywhere in life.
    I have six published books to date and counting. Keep your goals firmly in your mind and don’t let anyone sway you. A winner is an amateur who never quit.

  2. I learned that it is often best to use other peoples negatively as a catalyst for ones own success. I can point out so many people from my past who said that I wouldn’t ever be successful. Fast forward two decades, and these same people who tried to undermine my success are doing nothing with their lives, barely getting by, and working jobs they hate. Ironically, I’m enjoying overwhelming success and getting paid to do the things I love.

  3. I admire you for reaching your goal so quickly! I’m not sure how you, Jason, and others have been able to build such an amazing fan base in a matter of months but you’ve done it! Congratulations!
