“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”—Nelson Mandela, 1918-2013 (via harshluck)
When I was younger I believed that following your dreams was for the chosen few, or that it required something magical.
And while I believed in following your dreams, I didn’t actually believe it for myself. Doubt, and fear controlled me, and if there’s anything I could go back and tell myself it would be to “feel the feel and do it anyway”. What’s the worst that could happened if you follow your dreams? What’s the worst that could happened if you don’t? Believing in your own potential and greatness is important, but also logically, if you are constantly trying, you will eventually find success. Even if your odds are one in a million, if you try a million times, you are guaranteed success. I realize now that everything I want is on the other side of fear. You have the power to change your life. You have the power to be anything, and to do anything. Dream & Do.
