It’s almost sad. I mean how quickly and easy it is to shut down dreams. I know I get it. One thing I have learned in dance or even being a gymnastics coach. There is a skill you need to learn. Most people already give up at the thought. But the people who achieve it. Believe it or not are the people who just go for it. You might not be able to do it perfectly on the first go. But eventually if we stick at it. We will get results. But lately I see people who give up the minute it gets tough. What are they so scared of? Achieving their goal? Not achieving their goal? Will they crash? Will it hurt?
Last year I was stuck with the attitude of never going to achieve anything. I was past some sort of use by date. I dropped out of university threeish years ago. Was to stupid to do anything else. Stuck in a job where two woman tried to find fault in everything I do. How quickly I went from barely a future. To having two awesome jobs, an adventure every weekend and a life lesson every week.
I mean just last weekend I went to X-factor auditions. I dunno why I kept it so secret at first. I was talking to someone my mother told them what I was doing. They said, “Who is really stopping you? Is it really lame. Or have you convinced yourself that just to hide. The only person stopping you is yourself.” They were right. I went into that audition not to turn into some famous person. But to see if I actually had even a smidge of talent. Turns out I didn’t get through. However, I was nervous and not ready, but I had an outstanding voice for someone who was never professionally trained, a beautiful personality and emotion within my songs. I didn’t feel disappointed, I actually felt quite wonderful. Because they said that I should defiantly consider a music career and get my self a few lessons. Looks like it’s not to late for that dream.
I’m going to America next year to VIDCON!!!! I’m not even a great you tuber. I just dared to try. I visited Sydney and meet heaps of inspiring people. I love that to reach those dreams that you have. You need to break down those walls and get started on learning that skill. The walls holding you back and saying that it’s lame or to far to reach. Is just your mind. As cheesy as it sounds, deep down you know it’s true. It’s not easy but it’s achievable.
