You'll never accomplish anything
You're not talented enough
You will fail
When the artist would hear these comments she would hesitate and evaluate her work. Could she do this? Would she ever accomplish anything? Did she have any talent at all? Was she really destined to fail?
And as she would look around her at her crumpled attempts at perfection she realized that she needed to keep trying, regardless of the pessimism around her. People could tell her all day that she would fail but the true failure would be in stopping all together. The true failure would be in allowing those people to dictate her future and most importantly, she realized that no one could create her art but her. No one could start it or finish it but her and if she didn't try she would never know her true potential.
The moral of the story is: your life is your journey. Take advice from those you respect and respect peoples opinions but in the end make your own decisions because you are the only one who will reap the benefits or bear the consequences of your choices. Choose to live. Don't stop because someone else tells you you can't do it. If you don't keep trying you'll never know your true potential.
