Yesterday I was delivering a C9 detox to a customer, a man. He seemed very exited , although nervous. Which is normal. Giving up a lot of things in your daily life , should be a bit nerve wrecking. He had full support from his other half, who probably also pushed him towards doing it ðŸ˜‰ But he did say that he was a bit “worried” about how and what other people might say. You know, he is a man. A man on detox.
Later on I meet another customer. a woman. Who finished her detox a couple of weeks ago. She is still feeling fabulous andÂ wants to do another detox in a couple of months ðŸ˜€Â She told me that one of the things that made her feel so great , was the fact that she did it.Â And she did it, despite of what other people thought or said. You see, some people said to her that they didnÂ´t think she could go through with it. I guess telling it to her face is better, then all the people that was talking behind her back….
Now here is the thing. They are NOT teenagers. These are grown people.
Why are we not being more supportive of each other?
Since I was about twelve years old, the time when MTV was showing and talking about music, I wanted to work there. It was my biggest dream to be a television presenter and toÂ work alongside Davina and Enrique, talking about music all day. I was never questioned about about it, never told that my dream was out of reach. And in fact, is was my mum who pushed me to attend a audition when my local television station was looking for a presenter in a culture program for younger people. I wasnÂ´t “feeling” it on the audition day and I was running late, but my mum more or less forced me to go…” or you will regret it” she said .
I got the job!!!! Out of nearly 400 ambitious people, they choose me. ME ???
It was a long time dream that I didnÂ´t think would ever happen. I had started to doubt myself .
But people around me believed in me. Supported me and cheered me on.
I would never have gotten that job if it wasnÂ´t for that support.
If someone tells you about something they want to achieve or about a dream they have. If they want to do a detox, if they want to loose weight , stop smoking/ drinking, travel to Caribbean, clime up Mount Everest, do a marathon or even go out of space…..
Who are you to tell them that they canÂ´t do it ? Who are you to belittler them ?
It is a crazy world we live in. Too crazy. Sometimes dreams is all we have to cling on to. We all need to have goals in life, big or small. We all need to feel support. We are so quick to doubt ourself and we are so quick to judge other.
Stop the judging, start supporting and never, never let go of you dreams.
