Too many times in life you find out that our actions, behaviours, lifestyles, even our progress in life are determined my others. Most of us care too much about the opinions of others. We won’t take any step in life if someone else hasn’t validated our plans, in fact our lives are being dictated and remote controlled by others. We have failed to advance in life, or pursue our dreams at some point because we lived on other people’s opinions, worried about what people may think about our actions.

On the contrary, truly great and successful people don’t care what others think of them. They do well in getting what they want because they are unencumbered by others’ opinions. They understand that most of the time, the people we are looking up to, or worrying about their opinions of us are too busy worrying about their own lives to bother about us. And the only time they think about you, they are wondering what you are thinking about them.

Folks, all the people who have succeeded in life had to believe in themselves, their vision and what God said about them. They never relied on the opinions of others, because too often than not, these opinions would be negative, discouraging, and full of fear and the many reasons why you shouldn’t go after your dreams. So stop being affected by the opinions of others and remember, “you will make mistakes no matter which path you follow, but mistakes made on the path to self-discovery will correct themselves, while those made through blind adherence to subjective standards simply perpetuate the folly.”
