Quality over Quantity

October 10, 2011

Life is NOT a popularity contest. Not everyone has to like you. In reality, only YOU have to like you.

In other words, it is not the quantity of people that like you, respect you or admire you that counts. It is the quality of the relationships that you form that make all the difference.

In your work as well, it is not about the quantity of new ideas you have, but obviously of the quality of those ideas that make the greatest impact.

In life, we are taught that it is all a game of numbers. It isn’t. We are all here to make a mark on our world and if you can touch even just one person with your work, the quality of that work renders a deeper significance.

Remember, life is not a popularity contest. Learn to not need mass approvals, validation or praise. Learn that your own validation is just enough. You do not have to change the world overnight with your concepts and thinking, you have only to believe in your work yourself and do it for all the right reasons. The rest will come in time and others will be organically drawn to you. If by your thoughts, words and actions, you inspire and change the way one person views the world, that genuine quality will encourage change on a much broader scale.

Always remember, it is about the quality never the quantity that makes you successful in life. And the quality always begins with you being true to yourself and not doing what you think is right for other people to gain their acceptance. Selling yourself out never wins you the race. But being honest with yourself promotes an integrity that is magnetic. People will be drawn to you for all the right reasons.

Be a true leader. Don’t need people to follow you; follow your own heart. When you truly love yourself and live by your own highest standards, others will naturally 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 […]
