I’m leaving behind allowing people to influence my decisions. Last year I wanted to start my own sneaker business. I had a really good start but was discouraged when someone told me that online businesses are bad and I shouldn’t do it. This person didn’t have any business experience, but they were older than me so I assumed they were right so I backed out. Over time, I began to regret that decision and learned to not give up on something I believe in and to completely see it through to the end even if the end is failure.
