Do you believe in something similar to what I used to believe in?
When I wanted to do something, I never used let others know it. Let me give you an example, if I started learning a new language I did my best to keep it quiet, at least for a while. I had two reasons for this. First, whenever others found out what I was doing, I couldn't continue doing it anymore. I know my former way of thinking is called superstition, but when something happens constantly, you start to believe it will always happen.
Second, I sometimes made wrong decisions. I would start to learn something that I was not cut out for, then I gradually lost interest, and finally I would quit. In a situation like this, when someone in my life knew what happened, he or she would nag me and say things no one likes to hear.
Now almost everything has changed, those persons behave the same, but I have promised myself not to pay attention to their words. I have found out that everything depends on how much determination I have to do what I want to do. There is a saying by Jim Rohn: "If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse"; maybe it's true about me.
This process of changing the way I think is still ongoing, but I know that I'm on the right track!
