If you don’t want to live their life, it’s best you ignore their advice.
When you start to dream big and act on those dreams people tend to become rubbed the wrong way. They see you and are reminded of all the things they fail to pursue. They say things to throw you off and make you think you aren’t on track. This is a reminder to you to CONTINUE to apply pressure. You’re not working too hard and you most likely don’t need more rest. Hard work, works. So keep working and inspire them to wake up and get to work too. Just remember - if what they believed in worked for you, they’d be living your dream life right now - wouldn't they?
