It doesn’t matter where you’re coming from; all that matters is where you are going. – Brian Tracy
Meaning of this Quote
Many times, we cease to grow, not because of the lack of ability or opportunity or deficiency within us, but due to the constraints that lie somewhere hidden within our minds. Background, class, societal orientation, linguistic issues, physical incapability actually don’t matter at all until and unless you make that an excuse to bother you anyway!
If you are confident about yourself, that’s what is more important, and if you have that self-belief upon yourself, no external force can stop you from achieving you what you truly deserve! This is because no such indifference actually exists, all of them are actually lying within us.
We can be born with something or the family, background or the class we belong from actually was not in our hands. Thus, worrying about such menial things cannot actually change our origin. However, our destination where we are going can change the world’s perception towards us.
There have been several successful people in the world who don’t have a glamorous background. There are people who did belong from the underprivileged section of the society as well but what made them different from the rest of the world is that instead of focusing on their origin, they kept their sight intact on their goal and the direction they are heading through!
It is essential to understand that once you reach your destination, your goal defines you! Thus, people will forget your origin and the entire limelight will be upon you and the goal that you have achieved. A wise man will not cling onto the past, or where he belongs from, rather he will focus on the target and try to improve his process of walking along the way and reaching the target.
