Posted by Joshua Williamson April 20, 2016

If you have a dreams and goals in life but the people around you tell you your dreams and goals are unrealistic and it is likely it will never happen, do not let that demotivate you. You do not need other people to believe in you, as long as you believe in your ability that is all you need to accomplish your goals.

Do not let rejection stop you

Most people will usually stop after hearing their first ‘no’ but you should not let rejection stop you. For example if you have a passion for wedding photography but no one hires you, do not let this discourage you. The key is to keep trying and learning from past mistakes. If no one hires you it is because you are doing something wrong. Therefore first find out what it is you are doing wrong and fix it. You should also educate yourself as much as you can about the particular field you are interested in.

If it is wedding photography that you are interested in by reading books, taking photography classes, talking to the experts and engaging in unpaid internships it will allow you to fill your mind with the necessary knowledge that is needed to excel. And this professional that can provide a finest video to your special day.

Fear of failure

The fear of failing would be one of the main factors preventing you from accomplishing your dreams and goals. Being unsuccessful does not make you a failure, what makes you a failure is when you quit because the task becomes too difficult or you decide not to try a task because you are afraid you will be unsuccessful at it. Failing simply means learning from your mistakes therefore if you do fail at a certain task all you have to do is figure out what you did wrong and work harder the next time. Failure is an obstacle which can be overcome if you are willing to put in the effort and commitment. Watching success stories is an excellent tool to both motivate and inspire you to continue to reach your goals. Success stories expose you to the knowledge that you are not the only one in the world who has failed at something and this knowledge would aid in giving you a sense of belonging.

The importance of having self confidence

Failure might cause your self-confidence and self-worth to diminish, but if you are someone who has high self-esteem even if you are unsuccessful it would very difficult to bring down your self-confidence. If you have high self-esteem, failure will only make you do better and it would keep motivating you to get back on your feet until you prove to yourself that you can do it.
