Media personality Toke Makinwa has just written a motivational piece to young dreamers out there.
Someone will always stand against you – Toke Makinwa to young dreamers
In her post, where she encouraged them to keep doing what they do and create more paths, Toke Makinwa made them understand there will always be that one person who feels they don’t deserve what they get and will be ready to stand against them, no matter how good they may be.
Dear young dreamer,
There’s always going to be someone in the room who feels you are undeserving of that opportunity, there’s always someone that’ll argue against why you are chosen, there will always be that one person who just doesn’t see you or who feels they are better than you. Some opportunities you’ll get, some they will win, whatever the case is, don’t stop pushing.
She’s too loud, she’s not what we are looking for, she’s everywhere, I just don’t like her, she is controversial….the list is endless. It happens to the best of us and for the longest time I will cry and be so sad at why I’m always excluded, I’m just trying to have a better end than my beginning, I’m really just doing me not bothering anyone, just trying to eat.
Rejection they say is God’s protection, I don’t know who I’m speaking too but I handle rejection by flipping the script in my head. They see your potential; ohhhh they see it but you trigger their inner demons.
It’s almost as if they can see the greatness that you can’t see, they can’t handle you being more, you are not afraid to live and it scares the hell out them to imagine how far you’ll go so they can’t like you or accept you, they can’t add to your success, they don’t even want you to have it. You have the Joseph’s anointing where no matter how hard they come at you, you thrive.
I stopped thinking I was the problem and started accepting the blows. We fight everyday and I let my loses motivate me to build outside your box of perfection and one day, sooner than later the same mouths that condemned you will look up to sing your praise. Keep dreaming
