Stop Spending Too Much Time
Concentrating On Everyone Else’s
Perception Of You #BeYourself

“The world doesn’t owe you anything, you
owe the world something. So stop
daydreaming and start DOING.”

We have decided to create a different post for
the Quotes from this Article and we’ll be
sharing that later in the day….
Please continue reading and hope you find it
helpful…

Wearing a mask to impress others . –
If the face you always show the world is a
mask, someday there will be nothing beneath
it. Because when you spend too much time
concentrating on everyone else’s perception of you, or who everyone else wants you to be, you eventually forget who you really are. So don’t fear the judgments of others; you know in your heart who you are and what’s true to you.
You don’t have to be perfect to impress and
inspire people. Let them be impressed and
inspired by how you deal with your
imperfections.

Letting someone else create your dreams for
you. –
The greatest challenge in life is discovering who
you are; the second greatest is being happy
with what you find. A big part of this is your
decision to stay true to your own goals and
dreams. Do you have people who disagree with
you? Good. It means you’re standing your
ground and walking your own path.
Sometimes you’ll do things considered crazy by
others, but when you catch yourself excitedly
losing track of time, that’s when you’ll know
you’re doing the right thing.

Keeping negative company. –
Don’t let someone who has a bad attitude give
it to you. Don’t let them get to you. They can’t
pull the trigger if you don’t hand them the gun.
When you remember that keeping the company
of negative people is a choice, instead of an
obligation, you free yourself to keep the
company of compassion instead of anger,
generosity instead of greed, and patience
instead of anxiety .

Being selfish and egotistical. –
A life filled with loving deeds and good
character is the best tombstone. Those who you inspired and shared your love with will
remember how you made them feel long after
your time has expired.
So carve your name on hearts, not stone. What
you have done for yourself alone dies with you;
what you have done for others and the world
remains.

Avoiding change and growth. –
If you want to know your past look into your
present conditions. If you want to know your
future look into your present actions.
You must let go of the old to make way for the
new; the old way is gone, never to come back.
If you acknowledge this right now and take
steps to address it, you will position yourself for lasting success.

The Power of Habit. Giving up when the
going gets tough. –
There are no failures, just results. Even if
things don’t unfold the way you had expected,
don’t be disheartened or give up. Learn what
you can and move on. The one who continues
to advance one step at a time will win in the
end. Because the battle is always won far away and long before the final victory. It’s a process that occurs with small steps, decisions, and actions that gradually build upon each other and
eventually lead to that glorious moment of
triumph.

Trying to micromanage every little thing . –
Life should be touched, not strangled.
Sometimes you’ve got to relax and let life
happen without incessant worry and
micromanagement.
Learn to let go a little before you squeeze too
tight. Take a deep breath. When the dust
settles and you can once again see the forest
for the trees, take the next step forward.
You don’t have to know exactly where you’re
going to be headed somewhere great.
Everything in life is in perfect order whether
you understand it yet or not. It just takes some
time to connect all the dots.

Settling for less than you deserve . –
Be strong enough to let go and wise enough to
wait for what you deserve. Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you have ever been to stand up taller than you ever were
before. Sometimes your eyes need to be
washed by your tears so you can see the
possibilities in front of you with a clearer vision
again.

Don’t settle. Endlessly waiting until
tomorrow. –
The trouble is, you always think you have more
time than you do. But one day you will wake
up and there won’t be any more time to work
on the things you’ve always wanted to do. And
at that point you either will have achieved the
goals you set for yourself, or you will have a list
of excuses for why you haven’t.

Being lazy and wishy-washy. –
The world doesn’t owe you anything, you owe
the world something. So stop daydreaming and
start DOING. Develop a backbone, not a
wishbone.

Take full responsibility for your life –
Take control. You are important and you are
needed.
It’s too late to sit around and wait for
somebody to do something someday.
Someday is now; the somebody the world
needs is YOU.

You’re Great-By-Design
