“We must not allow other people’s limited perceptions to define us.” ~ Virginia Satir; American author and family therapist.
“Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not cliches but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.” ~ Phillip Sweet; American musician.
The human potential is often wasted and even ignored, because the human potential, the strength and the capacity to be happy and express ourselves through our talents, is within each one of us, it is the divine light beyond the ego which gives life to all rationale and is there to guide us forth.
But it is ignored because most people choose to allow their attentions to fall on other people’s opinions and judgments, so they themselves become self-conscious and embarrassed, fearful and even consider themselves worthless; and they also become crippled by all this turmoil which brings confusion and fear into their minds.
Life is a beautiful journey to create yourself–that is, YOURSELF, not others. And how can you create yourself and enjoy your journey if your mind is upon what other people think…?? How can great imagination to create happiness and success in your life exist in your mind while you remain in fear and chained to what others believe of you…??
You must break yourself free from caring what others think of you, free from the chains of mediocrity; for it is your own perception of yourself the one which matters, because it is your life and you are unique, but unless you become free to imagine and create you cannot know how unique you are.
You won’t be able to see the whole forest if you can only see the tree. And you won’t be able to see your opportunities and talents to progress in life if you can only see the people who judge you and consume your mental energy.
But, having said that, it is not the people’s fault but your own; therefore, you must take full control of your mind, seek peace, inquire within yourself, and follow your heart and care only about what you see for yourself.
