It is my day off, and I was surfing the net.
And I have found this: ‘Never discuss your personal development activities with anyone. Your strategies for expanding your mind and spirit are your own. Others might not understand the value of personal-mastery and, further, will take away your credit when you meet with success by saying that you relied on techniques. Keep these self-development activities to yourself’.
This is a great advice. Probably the greatest ever.
I remember, two years ago, when I decided that it’s time to finally live the life of my dreams, a lot of people ridiculed me. Not by using words; some gave me a cheeky grin, others scoffed at me, and others simply rolled their eyes.
Did that happened to you as well?
Personally, I think, there is nothing crueler that laughing at others dreams. [Words can cut like a knife].
Whenever you share your ambitious plan, some other people will ‘cut you down’ immediately: that’s not going to work, don’t be silly, and don’t forget who you are and where you come from….
Tune this out! Don’t tell anybody what you are doing! Achieving your dreams it is a process which requires you develop as a person, and for this personal development techniques are a MUST. You decide what works for you and what is necessary.
Think about it: how many people you know so far achieved the success you are after? Probably not many, if not one! So what kind of advice can they offer you?
Think about it next time when you decide to publicly announce your plan for the future.
Because there will always be people who will laugh at you because of what you believe it is possible for you. Remember Mahatma Gandhi: ‘First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win’.
To your happiness…
