I remember the moment well – when I was told that my dreams didn’t have a chance of becoming reality. It was enough for me to take a deep breath and back slowly away from what I most wanted to do, what I truly believed I was capable of doing.
It is painful to be told you aren’t good enough, that your ideas, your visions and dreams aren’t worthy of being chased.
For so many of us, those words and that rejection leave us floundering – stagnant in a place we don’t deserve to be.
But sometimes, when the quiet settles…when you listen to your own heart, when you trust the right people to keep you centered, you can see how the pain of rejection, failure and self-doubt – and yes, sometimes even the physical pain of trauma – are capable of pushing you forward instead of down.
I believe the answer is a strong yes.
This video is my story.
