When Someone Tells You That You Can't Do Something



What do you do when someone tells you that you can't do something? Do you change direction or do it anyway? There are times when the person telling you not to do something is actually looking out for your best interest.

For example, when you're about to stick your hand into a hot flame, but someone warns you not to do it. The person warning you not to put your hand into the flame knows that fire can be dangerous and doesn't want you to get hurt.

If you choose to go ahead and stick your hand into the flame, you're doing so at your own risk. There's a pretty good chance that you'll get burned.

But what about a person who tells you that you can't become a world reknowned physicist or an artic explorer? If you're told to abandon your aspirations because the obstacles are too great and that you should settle for a mediocre existence pushing a mop or playing video games instead of studying cartography, meteorology or particle physics, would you do it?

In the first example the person who is warning you against danger is likely coming from personal experience or at the very least extrapolating related facts. The person warning you not to go forward in the second example is fueled by fear and resentment of being left behind.

The actions and choices we make today will affect us long beyond tomorrow.
