Their Opinions Don't Matter
Today I want to talk with you guys about something that I have struggled to learn for a very long time. I am just about to share three words that can change your life if you let them. Now you have probably heard these words before, but it is about what you do with the information, not just hearing it, but actually believing it. Here it is: Opinions, don’t, matter. The opinions of other people just do not matter. Don’t let opinions control your life. Do not let opinions keep you from your greatness. There will always be people that will hate on what you are doing. The problem is when you let that stop you from being great. The problem is when you start listening to them and thinking for even a second that if you were doing everything right that you would not have any critics. First of all, that is just nonsense. You will always have critics no matter what move you make. You will always have haters in your life. There will always be people who do not like what you are doing and they will tell you that you are dumb or selfish or wasting your time.
Some of these people will tell you this because your success reminds them of all that they are not doing in their own lives. When you are lazy and do not live up to the goals that you have set out for yourself in your own life then when you see someone else doing what it is that you were not able to do it makes you feel worse about yourself so you tear them down because that is a whole lot easier then going through the work of actually getting better yourself. Getting better and achieving your goals takes hard work, determination, and true dedication to what you want and a lot of people just are not willing to do that, but they still do not want to feel horrible about themselves so they project the hate they have for themselves onto you and make you think that you have done something wrong, but really you have not.
You are not in control of what people give you in your life, but you are in control of what you accept from people. Let me tell you something right now that is really important, and I want you to hear this. You do not need to accept every opinion in your life. People will always talk because they have always talked. There is nothing you can do to stop all of the bad opinions from coming your way. Some people will give you their opinion because they genuinely want to help you, but a lot of people will be giving it because they just want to hate on the fact that you are actually striving to accomplish something and they are not. Stop letting them affect you. Their opinions do not matter.
It all starts with you.
