Whatever your parents say, they’re right.
Whatever your teacher says, she’s right.
Whatever your boss says, she’s right.
They’re all right.
Even if they're wrong.
They're all right.
Until you prove them wrong.
And the only way to prove them wrong is to show real world results.
If your parents want you to go to college but you want to be an entrepreneur, then go to college and build a successful business on the side.
If your boss doesn’t want you to work on that one idea of yours that could help your company, then work on it during your free time.
If your spouse doesn’t want you to quit your job to work on that business idea you have, then keep your job and build a successful business on the side.
Here’s the thing...
The only way to convince people you're struggling to convince is to show real world results.
There really is no other way.
Even that might sometimes not be enough.
And if you can't show real world results, you'll never be able to convince people you're struggling to convince.
So without real world results you won't be able to convince your parents.
Not even your spouse.
But even more importantly, you won't be able to convince yourself.
So get going...
