Naysayers Say WHAT!?

By Lauren Alicia of GYC-Girl YOU Crazy

“If I stopped after every negative Nellie (unisex) told me ‘NO’… said ‘Girl YOU Crazy’ & every other negative thing…I would have no dreams at all.”-YOUR Imagination speaking the truth

“If people don’t hate on my dreams…then I’m not dreaming BIG Enough, and if they don’t have nothing to say about me…then I’m NOT TALKING LOUD Enough!”-Boldness making its morning declaration

 

I have to say… over the years, I have grown to love Naysayers (the surname for Dream Crushers) for a few reasons:

“Naysayers…

  1. Are Bold
  2. They do not waste time
  3. Are in need of encouragement of their own dreams

&

  1. Have the possibility of being ME… (I can naysay about my own dreams)

Don’t believe me…???

Well, LETS talk about it!

  1. Naysayers are Bold (capital “B”) with the foolishness, negativity, ignorance, and just plain ‘I don’t like it’, ‘I don’t get it’ and ‘what in the world are YOU doing’

For a Naysayer to nay- say…they have to SAY!!!—That takes BOLDNESS (and you know it!)

  1. Naysayers Would NOT waste their time beating down a dream, idea, passion or desire that does not have the possibility of actually coming into your reality

Naysayers don’t get in sinking ships…they get in to sink YOUR ship…

  1. Are in need of encouragement of their own dreams

If the Naysayer were focused on their own dream and believed that it could happen for them…they would not be caught up in YOURS.—And sometimes you have to encourage them too in the process

 

  1. Have the possibility of being ME… I can naysay about my own dreams without the help of anyone else.

(I would put commentary about “d” here but…I’d rather tell a personal story…okay? Okay.)

Personal GYC (Girl YOU Crazy) Story:

While writing this, I thought about all my dreams and aspirations starting from when I was a kid, and how I feel about the same dreams today. In my trip down memory lane, I realized that EVERY dream and aspiration that was more than a one time thought…came with a long (lonnnnnnnnnng) trail of Naysayers.

And that’s why I love them…

“Say What!!!”

Thinking back allowed me to realize why the dreams I have today are the dreams I started pursuing/working at/defending/fighting for/making goals towards as a kid (like 3rd through 6th grade era…yes, I’m going way back).

Every time someone disagreed about who I wanted to be “when I grow up”, I proved to myself that they were wrong, which built a foundation and strengthened my passion to go for My OWN dreams if and when EVERY, everybody says, “Girl YOU Crazy, it will never happen, and she thinks she is a  ______________….hmph.”

 

I had to decide that if I wanted these dreams of mine…it was going to take a fight,

Since Naysayers use fighting words!

Right or Wrong???

It was decided that if I was going to quit it was going to be on my own terms, not agreeing with the Naysayers/Dream Crushers and taking them in as my own thoughts… It is real tempting to be your own Naysayer and doubt the possibilities… especially since your own voice can speak louder to YOU than anyone else’s.

 

Let Me Say This…in a Few Rants (and run-on sentences):

YOU, Me, We have to build up a foundation that can’t be broken with words…so you’ll be so convinced that its going to work anyway keep pushing forward… If YOU are doing something worth talking about…YOU are doing SOMETHING (just please let it be legal and about making your dreams your reality)!…

Also, if YOU were doing something that wasn’t amazing people wouldn’t even waste their time trying to crush/naysay/be negative your dreams but go get a shovel and probably dig across the street (you know how those nay-saying haters are!)!!!

I’m almost done…

 

And For all the words that used to set you back every time you dreamed out loud…be ready with words about YOURself that will push YOU forward! **It’s only a set back if you step back…and I just gotta be honest…YOU, ME, WE and old “Slewfoot” don’t…Do Not make a cute crew**

“If YOU don’t fight for your dreams…who do YOU suppose will?”
