“People have the illusion that if they can bring themselves up, they can move you down. They frame their lives as this incredible situation, leaving other people depressed seeing this fake life someone else has projected”
I hope you appreciated my first life principle (If you missed it, it can be found HERE)
My second life principle is:
Don’t Let Judgement Rule Your Life
It is the poison that can ruin your life and you know what – it’s totally your fault
Yes judging others is a big no-no, however this more relates to worrying about being judged by others
More often than not am I personally held back by self-sabotage and it all relates to what other people think of me. I’m sure many of you can relate
Isn’t it amazing that people a held back by something that is not in anyone’s control other than their own
I want you to try something for me. I want you to look out on a busy street (can just be done in your mind) and take a few moments think about how many people there are
10? 20? 100?
I want you to understand something and I want you to be very clear on this..
Are you ready?
Not one of those people give a F*CK about what you’re doing, wearing or how much you make a year and if they do, WHY DO YOU CARE SO MUCH?
By worrying about the thoughts or opinions of other people you are going no direction other than backwards
In other words – THIS WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE
There is always someone fitter than you and making more money than you, however the only thing you should feel is inspiration to work harder. Trust me, if they are genuinely successful they did not get to where they are by worrying what everyone else thought of them
In life, there is one thing that matters – happiness (it may sound cheesy but it’s true)
If you are happy, you have won
If you are doing what you love, you have won
If what other people think of you doesn’t bother you, you have won
It saddens me that this is such a massive issue in today’s society
I cannot begin to tell you how much this has ruled my life over the years and it’s time to stop
In a later post (when I develop the courage) I will explain in detail what I have been through over the years and how judgement by others has affected my life
Haha how ironic is that. I won’t share this right now as I’m worried what other people will think…
Please remember that the life principles I am sharing with you are areas in which I am trying to live my life by, which I haven’t fully been able to master yet. Everyday I get a little closer and a little happier
Now, how can you implement positive change and stop letting the judgment of others rule your life?
Here’s 3 simple ways:
Set goals. I’m talking massive goals that scare the shit out of you. However, make these goals relate to where YOU want your life to be, NOT where you want to be compared to other people
Be happy and grateful for what you’ve got. Everyday write down 3 things you’re grateful for
Make it a your #1 priority not to be fake. Don’t feel you have to lie to yourself in order to make out that you’re better than everyone else. Leave that to them
Do you have anything you’d like to share? I’d love any feedback you have on this topic
Before I hit the send button, I thought i’d give you a pretty cool example on how other people’s lives are not always as they seem….
Remember Lil’ Bow Wow? (Yep, the young guy who sang “Bow wow wow yippee yo yippee yay, where my dooog’s at? Bark with me now”
Well, check this out:
There some perfect proof that social media is a way for people to make you believe they’re killing it when they’re really not..
The moral to this article is that the only thing holding most people back is that they’re worried about what other people have to say
If you can take a few steps back and really think about your life and where YOU want to be, why would how much money someone else makes, how impressive their life looks or how fit they are bring you down?
In life you have choices – chose happiness 🙂
I hope this helps. Stay tuned for part 3!
