If you feel that you have failed, you need to see this to stay motivated. “Stranger Things” actor Dacre Montgomery is not a bully after all.
He posted an old photo of himself on Instagram, with a caption that would inspire us all.
The 24-year-old plays Billy Hargrove on screen, a bully who battles with Mind Flayers, but in real life, the Australian actor has struggled with his real-life giants. Montgomery talked about the challenges he encountered.
People said he needed acting classes. He was told he needed to lose weight. He was told he should quit. Despite it all, giving up did not even cross his mind.
Montgomery’s road to success wasn’t smooth. “When I was a kid, I am lost. I had a really tough time in school. I’m just a big kid who loved drama. I never got passing grades, I wasn’t popular or a gifted sports player. Girls do not have interest in me at that time. I suffered from anxiety from a young age. I got distracted, and I lose focus,” he wrote.

“I had a dream, I was lucky – I knew what I wanted to do,” he continued. “And every night I went home, and I focused on that.
I visualized a future where my dreams became a reality,” he continued. It is all about pressing on towards your goal.
No doubt Montgomery succeeded because he never gave up. “When I dream, they told me it wasn’t achievable.”
“I never let the failures get me down because I believed in myself and I never let anyone tell me otherwise,” he posted.
“You can do anything you set your mind to. So, go out there and get it!” he concluded.
When we thought that we have no choice but to give up. It is important to always strive harder to reach your goal and conquer mountains along the journey.
We needed to hear this more than we expected, never give up!
