Other people’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality. The truth is that all of us get to decide who we are. My experience as a learner is that we are simply the collection of the things that we believe to be true about ourselves and once we begin to form that opinion of who we are. We’ll act in accordance with that belief.
Here we go then, we begin to shape a vision of ourselves in our own mind and that becomes the reality. So letting other people influence means that letting other people come in and degrade us.
What we think of ourselves is one of the most dangerous and damning things that we could do; because they cloud our ability to craft a vision of the person that we want to become and that vision is so hard for all of us to hold on to that.
- We have to protect it
- We have to keep other people out of that
- We have got to have intention in creating the person that we want to become
It’s got to be deliberate. It’s not about trying to reflect what you think is true. It’s about reflecting on what we want to be true.
Once we have that kind of agenda going into something and building ourselves into someone that we want to be and we protect it; we don’t let others crowd it then we can morph and evolve into something beautiful, powerful or someone who’s capable of doing the things that we want to do.
Keep Going 🙂
