Sometimes the only reason we choose to stick at something is because we have something to prove to ourselves.
From the outside it might seem as though we’re wasting time and money because the success isn’t coming. From the inside we’re just not willing to give up yet because we believe that somehow we can find a way to make things work.
People tend to make fun of or be critical of things people do when they don’t consider them to be successful or aren’t making money from it. But the thing you choose to stick at doesn’t have to be something you’re trying to earn a living from.
More importantly, if you have something to prove to yourself, don’t let other people get in the way of that.
