Identify your detractors
"Dream crushers" are the people who discourage others from trying to change their lives for
They are all around. They are the fearful ones (perhaps a partner, family member, or relative),
maybe because of not wanting you to "lose" anything. They are also the jealous types (maybe
a co-worker or friend), and they are the types who would prefer to stay on their narrow course
in life, because to them it is the safest way not to try anything different, it is the easiest way to
It is this resistance to change that afflicts many people, and is the fundamental reason why
many problems of the world today, as in the past, are so intractable.

How to overcome "Dream Crushers"
Identify their motivation and understand that it's a human trait. Emphasize to your detractors that you can't give up on your goals because other people think they are unrealistic.

Choose who you would rather spend most of your time with, and avoid those who are openly critical of what you're striving to achieve. Sure, there will be critics, but keep your goals and dreams in front of you all the time by writing them down. They will be your motivation when discouragement may rear its unwelcome head.
Finally, and most importantly, the best way to overcome the dream crushers in your life is to be confident in yourself and your goals. If you are truly confident in yourself and your ideas, then no one can stop you.
