I remember years back in middle school a family member, I’m not going to say who, told me, and I could tell it was an honest opinion, that I aim to high. In essence of what we were talking about, the reference was to support the notion that I would get more of (immediately), what I wanted if I didn’t aim so high.
I want to point out the reality that sometimes your NORMAL–mediocre, is a HIGH reach for others. Therefore you cannot take the opinion of worth and value someone (friend, foe, or family), although they may be of importance, as your own. There are levels to life and there are levels to living, in which everyone doesn’t have the same view.
I can’t imagine what my life may have developed to if I had taken that opinion/comment to heart or adopted as my own. Trust yourself, trust your gut, and trust your values. Do not measure your life to the opinion of others.
As Alejandro Jodorowsky said, “Birds born in a cage think flying is an illness.”
Yes, it does take time. However, slowly but surely the banana is peeling back, and soon I’ll be staring the life of what I desire square in the face. I never associate myself with the opinions of other’s because their simply not my own. Masterpieces take time, and I am here for the journey too; not the destination.
