You Own Opinion Matters Most…
"Spend the time you WORRY about what other people think about you, OBSESSIVELY WORKING on what you are most passionate about..." (DEWism)
YES! It actually works... How much time do we spend worrying about how what we do will look? We say things to ourselves like:
Do I look like I want this too bad?
What if they don't like my idea?
Am I trying too hard?
Why don't they see it my way?
Imagine a world where everyone agreed with you -- your passion was the most important part of everyone else's reason for living!
Every opinion you offered was wildly cheered.
Every idea you presented gained a standing ovation.
Are you laughing yet? It's silly, isn't it?
Logic is subjective, Passion isn't always explainable, and Obsession just looks looney. Take a look in the mirror. Would you agree with you? Even some of the time? (I certainly didn't pass that test!)
There is ALWAYS a reason to listen to the opinions of others. But the opinions of others should not affect your obsession for what you are passionate.
