Vincent Van Gogh, also called Vincent Willem van Gogh, was a painter who lived in the late 1800s. He is most famous for his work Starry Night and Sunflowers as well as other pieces of artwork. One of the main reasons why he is so famous now is because he believed that you should never let anyone tell you what you can’t do. This quote is a perfect example of that sentiment. If you hear a voice within telling you that you can’t paint, then by all means paint! That voice will be silenced when your passion overwhelms their negativity.
Van Gogh said this after being at an asylum for medical treatment for depression and mental illness. He was not allowed to paint by doctors at the asylum, but he did so anyway. One of his paintings from that period is called “The Red Vineyard,” which was painted in Saint-Rémy in Provence in June 1889.
Van Gogh’s positive thinking is so inspiring because he really believed in his talent and passion. There were times when other people did not believe in him, but this only motivated him, even more, to prove everyone wrong! Even though Van Gogh was nearly impossible to please in terms of positive feedback, he was positive that his talent would be recognized one day.
The quote from Van Gogh is a message to everyone who has been told that they cannot do something by someone else. If you hear a voice within telling you that you can’t do something, then go and do it! That voice will be silenced when your positive thinking and positive actions overcome all of the negativity that other people try to put on you.
Van Gogh’s positive thinking is something that all of us can appreciate. If it weren’t for positive thinkers like him, then nobody would think about how they could make their dreams come true. Van Gogh was certainly one of those positive thinkers, and his positive thinking motivated him to paint until he died. He let his positive thoughts overcome all of the negativity that was thrown at him.
When you feel like nobody believes in you, then you need to turn that positive thinking into positive action. You should not let anyone tell you what you can and cannot do, because this will only motivate you to prove them wrong! Do not give up on your positive thinking no matter what other people might say. Their negativity will be silenced because your positive attitude simply refuses to let go of the positive thoughts that you have for yourself.
