People who are constantly doubting you’ll succeed in your goals are secretly hoping you won’t. If you quit taking it at face value, as though it were neutral and not a poison they carry, you feel some of the very weight fall away that could have made them right. We cannot allow the disbelief of others to weigh more than our own belief on the scale of opportunity.
