Day 14 – Project You – What Other People Think About You Doesn’t Matter

Journal entry- While reading the book “You Are A Bad Ass” by Jen Sincero, chapter 7, page 67 said it all.  I’ve been guilty of allowing what other people’s opinions about me, matter to me.  What I’ve discovered when I’ve asked for approval or feedback from people, the only thing they offered was an opinion. 

It’s so easy when people tell you what you should be doing with your life but they fail to share their own shortcomings.  Bottom line, I’m going to work on seeking my own approval, acknowledging areas that need improvement, and seek out those individuals who can not only offer an opinion but can provide tangible ideas or ways to help me accomplish my personal goals. 

On page 64 in the book the author suggests:

“DO NOT WASTE YOUR PRECIOUS TIME GIVING ONE SINGLE CRAP ABOUT WHAT ANYBODY ELSE THINKS OF YOU.”

The only questions you ever need to consider when making decisions about your life are:

Is this something I want to be, do or have?
Is this going to take me in the direction I want to go (not should go)?
Is this going to screw over anybody else in the process?
