If you want to grow, just know that learning is not an avent; it is a lifelong thing. If you want to succeed in your life, do not seek to be like other people. All you have to do is to NEVER stop learning about yourself, your life, where you are, and where you are going.

Your life is about you, not about other people. So if you are not living your life in your own way, you are wasting it. Because living other people’s lives will never get you to where you really want to go.

Focus on where you are going. Do not try to be like others. Just work harder to be better than who you were yesterday. That is the only way forward. Because to get what you want, to be successful, to grow, to make a difference, you must know who you are. If you do not know who you are, you will not get what you want.

If you know who you really are, you can achieve whatever it is that you want to achieve. It is important to know who you are. Knowing who you are is the beginning of success. Knowing who you are is the beginning of self-realization. Think about it. If you do not know yourself, if you do not know what you want to be, how can you do great things? You can’t.

And you can achieve greatness if you are willing and ready to take responsibility for your life, for your actions. According to Joan Didion, “The willingness to accept responsibility for one’s life is the source from which self-respect springs.” Yes, taking responsibility for our lives is everything. Responsibility is about racing against yourself, not racing against others. Racing against others is a waste of time. The best way to move forward in your life is to race against yourself. And if you can race against yourself, if you can face yourself, great things will come to you. The question is: Are you willing and ready to race against yourself?

Does It Matter?

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?
