How it can help:
You may learn that “what people would say about you” should not be a stumbling block in your learning process .
Many times we’re stopped by our inner fear of ‘what others would say, what others would think’.
You can’t stop people from saying bad things about you.All you can do is make them liars.
We go to the gym and we think everyone is looking at us, we start picking heavier weights on the very first day, run on the treadmill ,longer and faster than what we’re accustomed to. We do this to impress other people. But as a result, we get swollen muscles,body-ache & a permanently broken wish to go to a gym again.
We sit in the meetings, not uttering a single word even if we don’t understand anything.
Just because we don’t want to look stupid in others’ eyes.
To become smart, you’ve to be dumb on many occasions.
What is the solution :
Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions silence your dreams.
Ask questions, reach out, take help.
Your keys to happiness should lie in your hands .
Here are few things that you should ponder upon :
i) People opinions keep changing
People opinions about you would keep changing time-to-time if you keep changing yourself.
If you have to think what people would say, don’t think what they would stay today, imagine what they would say once you have achieved success, once you’ve lost that balloon -belly, once you’ve mastered something where you knew nothing.
2) You should not be worried about the crowd
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win”-Mahatma Gandhi
And remember, the real super-achievers would encourage you as they have passed through this struggling stage. The only people who would laugh at you would be the guys, who could not achieve anything significant in their own life, and you don’t need to listen to them.They are just a crowd, they want them to be like them , they would want to pull you back whenever you try to do something different.
3) Others don’t care as much as you think
People generally don’t think outside themselves a great deal of time. Most of the people are mostly absorbed in themselves .
Many a times they themselves are distracted by their own thoughts about “what others are thinking about them “!
It is true in almost all the cases, unless who you are or what you have done that directly affects other persons or their life, the people are unlikely to spend much time thinking about you at all.
4. It’s not their life, so it’s none of their business
People are entitled to think whatever they want, you can’t do much about it.
The honest only have to make one mistake to be crucified. The corrupt only have to do one good deed to be worshipped.
What people think of you cannot change who you are or what you are worth, unless you allow them to.
And people have a fickle mind! Help someone 10 times and say no one time , they tend to forget the times you helped but they would never forget that ‘one time’ you refused to help.
This is your life to live. At the end of the day you are the only person who needs to approve of your own choices.
