Generation Y is establishing itself at a key point in history. Never has there been a generation as obsessed with success, fame and money. As more and more of us pursue our education, our minds are becoming inundated with ideas on how to succeed.

But that’s just it. Much of the noise being made is comprised of hypothetical ideas, and not actual execution. We are afraid of the potential obstacles that we are bound to face, and in being afraid, we build the greatest obstacle of them all.

Don't Hold Yourself Back

Success isn’t met with ease, for if it were, we would all be prosperous in some way. The path to success comes with trials and tribulations, sleepless nights, failures and dead ends. Frankly, if you’re not ready to face these hardships, you don’t deserve to be successful.

Holding back from an opportunity is a disservice to yourself. You literally have nothing to lose. If you try, and achieve, that’s fucking great.

Don't Hold Yourself Back

If you try, and fail, you’ll end up in the same place you are now: hungry, but with more knowledge for a wiser perspective on the future. There is always a lesson to be learned.

Here are some individuals who succeeded despite their failures:

Michael Jordan: The G.O.A.T. was cut from Laney High School’s varsity basketball team during his sophomore year for being too short.

Don't Hold Yourself Back

Walt Disney: His first animation company went completely bankrupt not long after he started it. His cartoons were continually turned down from newspapers and magazines for not being creative enough.

The Beatles: A few record companies deemed the band a bust, even proclaiming that they had no future in the music business.

Don't Hold Yourself Back

Winston Churchill: Failed the 6th grade.

Remember ladies & gentlemen, ideas are just ideas. Don’t be afraid to pursue your dreams and become elite.

6 Types Of Friends You’ll Find Yourself Breaking Up With In Your 20s

Recently, my social media outlets have been blowing up with memes about how “the best friends are the ones who have known you the longest.” Or, “your best friends are the ones from childhood.” Blah, blah, blah. While I can appreciate the sentiment and well-meaning nature of these statements superimposed over cheesy stock photos, I […]

Why We Should Say What We Mean And Mean What We Say

It is a concept (and absolutely wonderful advice) that stands as a lesser-represented idiomatic phrase from our childhoods. Many of us remember classics like, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Or, “I’m rubber and you’re glue; whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you.” Those may have helped […]

13 Things People Who Overthink Everything Are Tired Of Thinking About

Overthinking is an epidemic. Like a plague, it takes hold of its victims and eats away at them from the inside out. It clouds their minds, judgment and destroys any semblance of happiness their already overworked minds could muster. It rots away at their brain and keeps them in a perpetual state of paralysis. Stripped down to its most […]

College Bro Tries To Backflip Off A Roof And Loses To Gravity (Video)

Philosophers have pondered the meaning of life for thousands of years and, even though I don’t claim to be smarter than the greatest minds of our time, I do think the explanation is a lot simpler than most people make it out to be. As far as I’m concerned, if you can successfully pull off […]

Reporter Gets Laughed Off Stage After Farting On Live TV (Video)

There are a few things in this world that I firmly believe are universally enjoyable and, in my honest opinion, people who don’t find farts funny are not to be trusted for any reason. Human beings have been trying to figure out exactly why unexpected bursts of air are so amusing since Plato first examined […]
