So, I recently posted a Video on this topic – and it got such a great response – that I’m sharing a little of it here on the blog, also.
It’s about learning 5 KEY WAYS to clear out the biggest obstacle standing between you and your dreams:
Giving a Rats-Ass what other people think.
VIDEO: It’s really funny – lol. Click & Watch.
First – grab a pen & paper because you’ll undoubtedly want to jot a few of these down…….
Let’s pretend you’ve got 2 Things:
What would you be doing?
The vast majority of people, when asked this question – usually have a pretty immediate response. I know this – because it was a question asked of every person I’ve ever interviewed.
It was my favorite part – because suddenly the “interview face” & stock” interview answers” melted away – and their eyes would light up – almost like being transported into a dream – as they described what was really their hearts desire.
So ask yourself….what would you be doing. Now – what’s stopping you?
Stop caring about what other people think of you….. But lemme fix my hair first.
Chances are – it is a Self-Imposed limitation – the biggest one of which is this:
The Fear of What Others Will Think or Say
This is hands-down, the biggest Self-Imposed limitation keeping the vast majority of people from moving forward.
So, how do we get past it?
With 5 KEY WAYS:
“People would care a lot less about what others think about them, if they knew how little others actually think about them…”
Listen – people might think about what you’re doing for a hot minute, then they’re over it and asking what’s for lunch. If you structure your entire life path trying to please other people – the only person who suffers is you.
You could cure cancer and save all the worlds puppies in a single day – and I promise you – some ding dong is gonna be pissed off that you didn’t save the Spotted Owl instead.
You will never please everyone. Even the most BELOVED people have haters & critics. Understand that it isn’t YOU, it’s them. Then let it go, and keep doing YOU.
Every one of us has a Vocation….a Calling. It’s what you were authentically put here to do. Follow it.
SUFFOCATE them with non-responsive indifference. Nothing says “You’re not important” like not giving Mean People the time of day. Trust me – it’ll bug the crap outta them, lol. BLOCK, Disengage, Steer Clear of being in their presence.
Not only will they GO AWAY, but rejecting their negative energy will fuel your strength, embolden your confidence and allow you to redirect the energy you saved – into YOUR path!
The key to dealing with Mean People, is just ignoring them, Lovey.
If you’re a human-being and not a robot – you make mistakes. Who doesn’t. The worst part of making a mistake, is worrying whether others will think poorly of you, right?
“Do they think I’m a disappointment, unworthy of the job, not smart” – etc. Look, by definition, a mistake is NOT intentional. Give yourself a break, exercise Self-Compassion.
The people (you think are) judging you have all made their own mistakes at some point also. Learn from it – then let it go.
If you had $100m in the bank & a magic wand – What would you be doing right now? If you answered immediately…..That’s your Calling!
Look, life is too short to give an F about what everyone else thinks about you. It’s YOUR life.
YOU decide what you want out of your life. What others want for you isn’t their business. It’s not their life. It’s not their decision. It’s not for them to dictate.
You are the boss of YOU!
Not allowing the “worry of what others think” to take over and stop you from following the Dream you have for yourself – is the main priority.
Once you start doing this – you will see that the only person who has control over your life is…. YOU – so make it great one.
