"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."
~ Mark Twain

A hot air balloon does not get into the air by chance. The deflated shell springs to life as hot air is generated from an underlying burner.
Applying this to life… when pursuing a dream, you may find two types of people on the sideline. Those that turn your burner “off” and those that turn your burner “on.”
Some people attempt to deflate a young dream with the drop of a word. Still others take pride in inflating a fragile ambition with praise and admiration; watching with pride and awe as the dream ascends into the sky with beauty and grace.
If aligned with those that are great, you too will be destined for the same. It is important to remember, however, that with success comes a higher calling. As you ascend into the skies confident and secure, look below. Others will be scrambling to embark on their own adventure. As you complete your journey and prepare to embark on the next, feel your balloon inflate with your own self confidence. Look around as others scramble to inflate their balloon for the first time. Take your knowledge of what is great and offer assistance. Remember what it was like to start new.
Whose burner will you light today?
