“To find yourself, think for yourself.”- Socrates
Don’t worry about what other people are saying about you. They are irrelevant. What really counts is what you think about yourself. How you see yourself. What you say to yourself. Yes, it is okay to listen to people (good and bad people), but don’t let what they are saying about you engulf or prevents you from enjoying your life.
Think for yourself. Make your own critical decisions. Don’t delegate your personal decisions to anyone. They are not qualified to handle them. The only person who is ready to handle your personal decision is YOU.
Remember, no matter what you do (good or bad), people will always have negative or positive things to say about you. Don’t let that distract you. Don’t let that prevent you from enjoying yourself. Don’t let that hold you back from achieving your dreams.
You must think for yourself. If you want happiness in your life, you must think for yourself. If you want to grow, you must learn to think for yourself. If you want to build positive relationships, you must think for yourself. If you want to change your life, you must think for yourself. If you don’t, people will think for you. And when they do, you are not going to be happy with what you will get. But you can change it by thinking for yourself. It requires confidence. It requires courage. It requires hope. It requires compassion. It requires focus.
Focus on your own business. Focus on your life. It matters. It is all you have. Stay away from people who want to tear you down. To do that, you must be able to think for yourself.
