Mark Twain said to keep away from people who try to belittle your ambition.
The really great people make you feel that you too can become great. Keep away from people who would diminish your dreams, ambitions or ideas. Seek out some of the people you know to absolutely help you recognize that there’s something great inside of you and the gift you have to give.
It’s not dependent on age, money or education. It’s the greatness you have been given. Something great is trying to happen to you. Choose to be around those people who support your greatness.
