Motivational Quote - Don't let someone who gave up on their dreams talk you out of going after yours.

SparkPeople's Comments

Many people have tried and failed to reach their goals, and they might try to bring you down to their level. Don't fall into that trap! Your journey is yours alone, and just because someone else failed to reach their goals and refused to get back up does not mean that you will fail, too. Brush off the negativity and gravitate toward people who will lift you up rather than pull you down.

I have a dear freiend who feels threatened by the positive changes I'm making in my life. I wish I could share my optimism and help her to realise her potential. She has her own journey to take.

Never allow negative persons to change your mind about persuing your dreams..Believe in self and go forward!

Someone tried that once and I told them to get lost and they did. I haven't seen or heard from them since. Oh well.

Great message!
Many people drowning in a sea of misery, want to take you to the bottom of the sea --with them---- RESIST, and avoid them! Be happy--and choose to find JOY. . .

I have a lot to learn about staying true to my goals.

When people can't or won't get on the band wagon with you , they will try and pull you down with them. They feel better when you are failing, too. Stay focused and find like minded people.

There are alot of people that are miserable with their lives and want to see others fail and be miserable also. I do not want that negativity beside me. i need good positive things. I am doing this for me and I am so proud of me. I do not want to be miserable for the reason of not taking care of my health. I want to be happy . I am doing something positive for me. This is such a great feeling. Why look for negative when we can have succeeded and feel positive!!

Am losing weight for myself but sure would be nice to have some support and encouragement from others
Right now belong to a TOPS chapter with members who are neither motivated nor supportive of my losing weight and it is hard being the only positive one and writing notes of encouragement and inspiration am getting discouraged
Will not give up on myself one day at a time
