Now, I make a full-time living from writing and have a blog that has received well over a million views.
During my corporate life, I was told on numerous occasions that I wouldn’t get to a certain level of management.
After multiple attempts, I finally got there and built a team that delivered outstanding results.
When I told people that I was quitting my job to start a full-time resume writing, coaching and speaking business, they looked at me as if I was crazy.
That was about three years ago and since then I have been able to build a small business that is delivering successful results for my clients.
I don’t say any of this to brag (honestly, that’s not my style and my achievements are quite unimpressive compared with a lot of other people). I’m extremely grateful for everything that I have and don’t take any of it for granted.
I just want to encourage you that when people tell that you can’t or won’t be able to do certain things, you don’t have to believe them.
I could have listened to the critics.
I could have taken their words to heart and let them crush my dreams.
I could have sold myself short and proved them right.
But I pressed on.
I proved them wrong.
And it feels good.
What do you need to prove people wrong about?
