Sometimes no isn’t the answer you want to hear, but there’s a reason for it. Can you imagine being the person that said no to Einstein? Surely they regretted that decision later. The thing is that if you have someone telling you know it could be a sign that you should just do it yourself. Or it could mean that you need to ask someone else. Don’t put a lot of stock in any one person saying yes, just never give up if it’s truly important to you.

“I am thankful to all who said no to me. It is because of them that I’m doing it myself.” ~ Albert Einstein
Some people work hard but have no talent and other people have talent but do not work hard. These are both sad situations, but the person who realizes their talent and doesn’t work to maximize it is a very sad and discouraging sight.
We must all stop separating ourselves into categories of nationalities and political parties. These ideologies separate us and cause us to only communicate and socialize with the ones who hold our same beliefs. We have to broaden our scope and accept everyone even if they are different.
If you are headed in the right direction with the potential for a great success, you don’t need to change.

If you are headed for the stars, perhaps you’ve already made the changes needed.
“Things change, people change, but you will always be you, so stay true to yourself and never sacrifice who you are for anyone.” – Zayn Malik
Material things change, the people you spend time with change and move on, but you will always be who you are. Stay true to your morals and your personality and never let anyone come between you and you.
In your heart of hearts, you know what drives you and what makes you a gift for the entire world. It is probably so much deeper than you give yourself credit for. If you live those beliefs and convictions, you can make major changes in the world. That’s how a few people with no jobs (like Emerson and Thoreau) shifted the entire thinking of a nation (Transcendentalism).
“Virtually nothing is impossible in this world if you just put your mind to it and maintain a positive attitude.” – Lou Holtz
Everything that is possible now was once impossible before. It took dedication and fortitude for those to create what others said could not be done. Believe that you can, keep moving forward and you will. Things might get hard, but keep your positive attitude at the forefront and things will work out fine.
When you let go of what you currently are, you can become what you want to become. We all envision the person that we want to become but sometimes it feels out of reach. We must work every day to become that person and start to believe we can. It starts with letting go of who you are today and working toward who you are supposed to be.
