It’s not who you are that holds you back. It’s who you think you’re not.
At this moment I am listening to music that let your thoughts go away and create new thoughts that you maybe never think of without music. With music you dream away. Maybe you are hoping that your dream will become reality. Sometimes even a song text can make you feel another person or you can enter in the song and live it. That is what they call art! I have that with my pictures, videos and writing. You can dream away and feeling perfect! And that is what this quote is all about. Something is holding you back! This songwriter/singer is very good in my opinion. Listening to his songs make me feel stronger and he gives me inspiration to write. But also to make pictures! When you think about this quote, the first word that comes in my head is confidence! When you feel strong and have confidence in yourself nothing is holding you back. When you are not feeling strong and have no confidence, they will hold you back. Because it is the way you think you are not. My new passion is running. And I thought: “ No I cannot do this!” And it is the same with my passion for photography. I have to believe that i’am a photographer and a runner! It all has to do with insecurity! Now I feel that I am a runner and a photographer and I will be and getting stronger everyday!
Believe in yourself! Have faith in yourself! Feel strong inside. Because you deserve to have a chance and to change in who you want to be if you have a choice. Sometimes you need to do it on your own. You need to love yourself before you can help somebody else!
I can be a shy person and I think that has to do with confidence. If you have confidence you seem much stronger. Do not be afraid to make mistakes because you can learn from your mistakes. To much confidence will make you seem arrogant. Sometimes it really is so. I rather be shy then having to much confidence. But what brings you closer to achieving your goal? I think believe in yourself and try to be yourself! Not wanting to be somebody else who is out of your league.
Be who you are! Stop thinking who you think you’re not. Create that person who you want to be! Eventually you will have confidence and strength. And maybe there there will be some people in your life who will love and support you in having confidence in the person who you think you’re not. Thanks to their love, confidence, protection, guidance and so much more you will be the person who you want to be.
Just think about it and write to you soon!
