Don’t Tell Them!

“You can be happy without expecting others to agree with you.”
~ Kathleen Russell & Larry Wall,
from Achieving Your Dreams

One of Garth Brooks’ tunes goes like this: “Nothing ventured, nothing gained – sometimes you’ve got to go against the grain!” What is this “grain” we seem to fear going against? Most commonly, we’re afraid of what people will think about us for venturing in a new direction.

Others may say something like “That’s never been done before,” or “We’ve always done it this way,” or “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” That’s their story – not yours!

Do you have a dream? Is there something you want to achieve that others might not understand? Don’t tell them! It’s not necessary to tell anyone what you are doing or planning. If your plan is radical, “they” probably wouldn’t understand anyway.

So – live your dream. Plan it, execute it, and enjoy it.
