3. “They are probably right, so I must be wrong!”
Don’t allow others to confuse you.
Don’t let them convince your heart what is right for you. Your heart already knows. Listen to it.
Don’t let anyone dilute the power of your inner voice.
You’ve got to stand up for something specific, on your own two feet, or you will achieve nothing worthwhile in your own mind. Within you there is formidable and undeniable sense of purpose.
Happiness comes from making a solid and persistent connection to that purpose. When your intentions are supported by a ‘why’ that has meaning, you will find the ‘how’ to bring them to life.
Bottom line: What’s right for you may be wrong for others, and vice versa. The truth is that the world isn’t really as it is, but as we see it. And we all see it differently. So don’t be scared to step out of line.
It’s OK to go off the beaten path, as long as you know why going a different way is right for you.
Some people may resent the freedom that you create in your life when you choose to be true to yourself. If you come across these people, ignore them and carry on.
4. “This is shit!”
The worst obstacle in life is a bad attitude.
Remember, it’s not what happens to you, but how you respond to what happens to you. You can’t let one bad moment spoil a bunch of good ones.
Don’t let the silly little dramas of each day get you down. Smile, even when it feels like things are falling apart. Smiling doesn’t always mean you’re happy; sometimes it just means you’re strong.
Likewise, do not let the negative opinions of others derail you.
Throughout your life you will meet two kinds of people: those who are a drain on your energy and try to derail your dreams, and those who give you the energy to pursue your dreams.
Ignore the first kind and cherish the second. People that doubt, judge, and disrespect you are not worth your time and attention.
Do It Now! DIN!
Another 2 tomorrow.
