What are you scared of? Are you scared of other people’s opinions of you? Are you scared of life? No, you should be scared of life. Why is that? Because life is full of issues. Life is full of opportunities. Do not be scared of life. Life is for you to live. And to live it well, you must believe in your life. Life is hell when you do not believe in your life, when you do not know what you are doing, when you are just going with the flow, when you are confused.
“Life is hell when you do not believe in yourself.”
The only thing you can do about what you cannot control is to accept it.
You are unique. But just know that you cannot control everything . Just control what you can control. And do not let what you cannot control stop you from challenging life. If you are to succeed in your life, you will never stop fighting life. Because life is all about fight. You must fight for whatever you want. And there is nothing you cannot get if you are willing and ready to fight. If you are willing to fight, you will succeed. And success is not an event. Sucess is a process. Success takes time to achieve. If you want to succeed, you must cultivate the courage to walk alone.
“Success is not an event.”
Terence once said, “I am the most concerned in my own interests.” Yes, you are you. And you are here to make your life a masterpiece. If you cannot do it right now, do not give up. Keep going. Keep fighting. Keep living. And keep loving!
Does it really matter? When you are enjoying your life, when you are doing what you are supposed to be doing, when you are living your life, when you are loving yourself, when you are making yourself happy, when you are trying new things, when you are not afraid to think for yourself, when you are reinventing yourself, other people’s opinions don’t matter.
But if other people’s opinions don’t matter, then why are we worrying ourselves about them? Why can’t we just live our lives without worrying about other people’s opinions? Why can’t we just keep going, keep going to places? We can, but we don’t. We can, but we won’t. Why is that? Because we want to fit in. We want other people to like us. If you have been doing it, stop it.
You can’t fit in and expect yourself to do great things. You can’t fit in and still live your normal life. You can’t fit in and still have the courage to think for yourself. Because fitting in is the same thing as just going with the flow. When you go with the flow, you are just doing what other people want you to do.You are just living the way they want you to live, to think. If you want to make a diffrence,you must learn how to question the flow. Before you go with the flow, question it. There is power in questioning. The more questions you ask, the more you will know about yourself, about your life, and about the people around you. Questions are good, not bad. If you have the courage to ask intelligent questions, why not?
If you want to get to the next level, if you want to make a difference, do not worry about other people’s opinions of you. Why? Because they don’t count. They don’t matter. Do they really matter?
