Watching for Gold

I came across this quote on Facebook...

We all have experienced naysayers in our lives. They stick out like a sore thumb. There's nothing worse than telling your dreams and visions to someone and they shoot it down. And when it's repetitive, well, that signifies a deeper internal problem. Not with you, because you are speaking your dream. You verbalizing your vision. The internal problem isn't with you, but with that person. Hmm.

And that has NOTHING to do with you.

So ditch'em!

(I know, I know.  I'm just harsh like that).

We all have or have had cheerleaders in our lives... those people that really don't get what and why we are doing something, but they cheer us on nevertheless...

Those are the people that matter. And add to that their ability to ask the probing questions and give wise counsel... enough so to get you on your way to your dream?

Man... those people are gold. They are precious gems. And as the quote says, we have to "watch" for those people. They tend to be drowned out by the negative folks in our lives. And that is sad.

I am always watching for gold. Always.

And we all need more of this gold in our lives. 


  1. Me too. I printed this out :)

  2. i love this! and i know just who cheers on my dreams all the time

  3. That is the truth!! Ditch em !! or do what I do just don't share your dreams with them. Remember some folk unfortunately do not how to dream or have no dreams. Some of those can be inspired by watching you on your journey even if you dont share details along the way. Yall know people be watching and some of those people will be inspired to develop and reach for their own dreams by watching you from outside of the "golden circle" of supportive people.
