Kendrick Lamar has a powerful verse featured on Sia’s song, The Greatest. Kendrick’s message conveys how giving up will only allow the strong ones to survive and the weak ones to die. For example, in his verse, he mentions how people will judge you based off of your letdowns:
“Letdowns will get you, and the critics will test you”
It’s important to understand, never allow an opinion coming from someone else drag you down. Not only is giving up a step away from success, but allowing critics to bring you down will bring you back five steps from the pursuit of happiness. Unfortunately, going through life in general, there’s always going to be critics. However, it is completely up to us how we will decide to respond and allow them to affect our lives. Will you allow the pressure to transform you in a positive or negative way? Ultimately, the choice is yours.

Now signing off with the reminder: Don’t wait for the world to recognize your greatness, live it and let the world catch up to you.
