“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
~ Mark Twain
Some people like to sit back and criticize rather than actually doing anything.
You have big dreams, big ambitions? You must be an egotistical asshole. Striving for greatness, want to change the world? Eff that, people will tell you. Aim for the middle. Aim for “good enough.” Aim for average.
When you find yourself talking with someone who belittles your dreams:
Great people (and true friends) aren’t threatened by the dreams and ambitions of others. They don’t sit around playing backseat driver in other people’s lives. They are busy pursuing their own dreams and giving a helping hand to those who do the same.
