It is not about talent, or what others think or say of you, its about your willingness to take a beating for your dreams and all that you want to achieve in life, and remain humble and disciplined along the journey.
Let others advice you, for it where you will earn to be wise, but never let anyone decide for you.
Believe in you and your dreams, and go the furthest t fight the battles for them, but the place where you must start is where you are. Then Use what you have, and Do what you can. And everything else will come into place.
Follow your sun and not the shadows. Be the warrior that you are, and not the one that others want you to be. Be graceful than doubtful. Remember FEAR is a four letter word, so is HOPE, chose which one is better for you then abide in it with your life.
