LYRICS To “Maybe” Shoutout To My Haters – Motivational Speech:
They said I changed… Maybe… They were just jealous because they didn’t change. Maybe… They were ASHAMED because they didn’t change. Maybe… they were DISAPPOINTED they remained the same.
Yeah, I changed. Like anyone with ambition remains the same!
Yeah, I changed. I changed everything but my name.
I wasn’t born a miracle to be average. I have no desire to fit in. No desire to conform to anyone’s wishes… but I have every desire to improve myself… every day, every hour every minute.
They will say you didn’t make time for them… Maybe they weren’t worth your time…
They laughed at my dreams and my goals… Maybe… They were embarrassed because they didn’t have any. Maybe their dreams were really nightmares. Maybe their lives were really a horror story.
They said I was arrogant. Maybe… They just hated my ambition. Maybe… They were too ashamed they had none themselves… Maybe… I remind them of their weakness.
They said I wouldn’t make it to the top. Listen, They said I wouldn’t make it full stop. They said I would fail… I would fall… that no one would believe in me, they gave me so many reasons… But they forgot to ask about my desire. They never asked if I was willing to sacrifice… They never asked if I would do whatever it takes to make it…
Maybe if they did they would have kept quiet. Maybe… they wanted to ensure they had someone to sit with… you know, at the bottom of the mountain. You know, with the majority of people that didn’t put in the work. Those who didn’t have the courage… The drive, the will, the passion… To fight for their dreams, to sacrifice, or even to conquer.
Maybe they were afraid… because they didn’t have what it takes… What it takes to keep up with my drive… To go toe to toe with my passion.
They will say you never make the time for them… Maybe you only make time for the people that are worth your time. Maybe there is a lack of those type of people. Maybe they are not those people.
Someone once told me: It is better to be hated for what you are then to be loved for what you are not. It is better to walk alone and be successful, then to walk with those who wander aimlessly through life and end up in the middle of no-where.
But it’s ok…
Because when my circle got smaller my DRIVE got bigger! When my circle got smaller: my vision got LARGER! When my circle got smaller: my circle got stronger!
The proof is always in the pudding! You can’t fake results! I move on without them! I know I am stronger! I know I am better! I know I am greater!
Without them it is a blessing. Without them I keep on growing… moving forward… I am constantly on the move without them.
You are not a puddle… don’t let them walk all over you!
You are not a sliding door… they can not look right through you.
You are not a doormat… don’t let them wipe their dirt on your face!
You are not below them… don’t let them look down on you. Stand tall, walk strong and hold your own!
There is no one above or below you. There is no one superior or inferior to you.
You must always remain hungry… but don’t ever lose your passion or your compassion. You have enormous drive but don’t lose your humility. Put yourself in their shoes,
but don’t live in them. Live your life, let them live theirs… Go after your dreams and let them decide their own fate…
You said i would never make it in life. You said I would fail. You said I would humiliate myself… I didn’t have it in me… I was no good… I wouldn’t succeed. You said I was weak. You said I wasn’t strong.
I guess they didn’t know what I knew… That i would make it… Maybe not immediately, but absolutely and definitely.
The difference between winning or losing…. The difference between those that do, and those that don’t make it in life… It isn’t about talent…. It isn’t about any type of magical formula… The difference is character It is your human spirit… And if you’re going to make it in this world… Living out your dreams or living out your nightmares… It is completely up to what you do.
It all comes down to you.
