People’s Opinions

April 6, 2015

People's opinions… are theirs, NOT YOURS.

They have absolutely no bearing over your life, unless you give it to them.

You don’t need anyone’s opinion to be who you are. No one needs to agree with you or needs to agree with how you are showing up and/or how you are living your life.

If who you are doesn’t work for someone, then that person doesn’t work in your life and their opinions subsequently should be of little consequence to you.

You only get ONE life to live (this time around anyway), why would you spend it trying to be something for someone else? People who need you to be something other than who you are don’t like themselves. And if they do not like themselves, chances are their opinions of you will not be very favorable.

It doesn’t matter what people think. It only matters what YOU THINK. Don’t live your life in fear of what other people might think about you. Take back your control and put that energy back into yourself and your work and build your life. When you learn to really love and value yourself, your life takes off in amazing ways and you will find that other people’s opinions of you change in your favor without your even trying.

It’s not about what other people think, it’s about what YOU THINK. If you want others to like you and accept you, learn to like and accept yourself. It’s your life and when you can live it and learn to love it and support it, you will find that others will easily follow suit.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
