A lot of us have failed to advance in life, or pursue our dreams at some point because we lived on other people’s opinions, worried about what people may think about our actions. The truth is most of the time, nobody is thinking about you at all. The people we are worrying about are too busy worrying about their own lives to bother about us. And the only time they think about you, they are wondering what you are thinking about them.
If having others believing in you and your dream was the requirement for success, then, I would never accomplish anything worthwhile. We need to base our decisions about what we want to do and achieve on our desires, plans, and goals. Not the goals, desires, opinions, and judgements of our spouses, friends, parents, children and colleagues. Its never about them, it is about you and what gives you joy. Quit worrying about what others think about you and follow your heart.
The 18/40/60 rule by Dr. Daniel Amen says;
At 18 you worry about what everyone thinks of you. At 40 you don’t care what anybody thinks of you. At 60 you realise no one was thinking about you anyway!
With this realization let us quit thinking and worrying about what others think of our relationships, our jobs, our looks, our income, our marriage choices. Let us spend that energy and time thinking about our goals and our to make our lives better.
