The secret life hack that nobody ever tells you, because they are too busy hoping they will figure it out first. Ok, here it is.
You must reach a point in your life where you no longer care anymore. About impressing people, what people think, what they say to you. None of that matters anymore. Because the only thing that does is you and your own personal growth.
When you reach this point, you will find true bliss. And many people think it’s easy. Many people read these words, nod their heads and are like “Yeah, obviously. That makes total sense. You totally gotta focus on yourself!” And then those people make zero changes in life. Because they still care what everyone thinks.
"Many people read these words, nod their heads and are like 'Yeah, obviously. You totally gotta focus on yourself!' And then make zero changes in life. Because they still care what everyone thinks."
It’s an easy concept to grasp. But to actually live by this motto, is a total lifestyle and mindset change. It makes you discover who you really are. To truly live by the words “I don’t care what others think” means facing the real you. It requires you to look past the mirage you normally cloak yourself with and numb out when you're alone, to revisit past trauma yet still find the strength to move on, to forgive yourself for who you used to be.
If you don’t do any of these things, you will always allow other people to get in your way. Because other people are always there, we can’t escape them. We must work with them if we want to succeed in life. But imagine always holding someone else’s opinion above your own? Never having the confidence to trust in your own natural intelligence and abilities?
"No one is smarter than anyone else, we just hold different information and interpretations of the world."
We are all human. No one is bigger or better than anyone else. We all operate on our own vibration of intelligence. No one is smarter than anyone else, we just hold different information and interpretations of the world. Yet we've created a system of life that favors a particular kind of people or intelligence (most likely created by those kinds of people themselves). But that doesn’t mean other forms of intelligence are useless. They may not hold much value in this particular social era or moment in time… but do we really want to keep conforming to the standards of present day society?
By caring what other people think, you are allowing yourself to conform. You are being just another sheep in the herd, following along and always looking for approval. You don’t care enough about your own life’s purpose, because the thrill of getting external validation is more addictive to you than the thrill of actually making something of yourself. But what if I told you that cheap thrill you get from external validation, is holding you back from experiencing the biggest possible thrills life has to offer you?
Because only you can lead you there. No one else's insecure projections or opinions of your life is ever going to guide you to your true life's purpose. If you truly want to experience life to the fullest extent, euphoria beyond your wildest dreams... then repeat after me:
I do not care for external validation. I follow my own inner compass, and I do what I want.
And keep repeating this until it becomes true.
