“Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner.” – Lao Tzu
Are you concerned about how others view you? Absolutely! Most of us are. Most of us care. It is only human nature to want to be liked and accepted. However, this very desire can often lead to worrying too much about what others are thinking about you. When all is stripped away, our character is what remains. Being a person of your "word" is a true and visible testament to who you are and how you are viewed. It's our reputation walking before us! Remember - we are who we are regardless of what other folks think or say about us! Being confronted by unfounded gossip, untruthful remarks, and negative conversations, though hurtful deserve ignoring. Why waste your time getting caught up in other folks' thoughts? Our path should be rid of stumbling blocks - be they people, places, or things. Stop fretting! We know who we are!
Assertively, put negativism behind you. Don't let it ruin your positive vibes. For certain, negative grooves will slow your progression. Move at your own speed! You'll arrive at your destination much faster!
