“If my critics saw me walking over the Thames they would say it was because I couldn’t swim”

Whether it’s a career choice, a life choice, a decision to drink or not to drink, a religious choice, a new partner, a different hairdo or even a facebook status – far too often, we worry about what people think of our lives. We forget that, at the end of the day, people’s opinions are irrelevant. The secret lies in fighting for our dreams, for even if we don’t follow them, people will still criticise us. Happiness lies not in people’s perception of one but in the peace of knowing that you are pursuing your own dreams, your own wishes and the lifestyle you choose – in your own way, shape and style. And so, dream big. Dream outside the box. Dream fearlessly. Dream, dream, dream!

Margaret Thatcher knew this all too well. Blocking her ears to her critics, she retorted thus, “If my critics saw me walking over the Thames they would say it was because I couldn’t swim.”

This thought chimes true for many a dreamer…
