15 Things You Don’t Need To Care About That Others Do

15 Things You Don’t Need To Care About That Others Do

We are always pushed to do certain things because we are concerned about other people’s opinion of us. The reality is that no one cares about you more than yourself. Caring about seemingly frivolous things could affect your self-esteem and confidence. It is important to start focusing on you and not pay attention to these 15 things you don’t need to care about though many think you should.

Their progress in life

People can be narcissistic in nature and they could want to involve you or make you envious of their achievement. Truthfully beyond congratulating them you have nothing else to be bothered about regarding the success of others. Focus on you.

When the world will end

A certain doomsday continues to loom over many citizens of the world. There is a general perception that you should make haste while the sun shines as the world faces its climax. Interestingly this prophecy has loomed for hundred, even thousands of years with no fulfillment.

UFOs/Aliens/Vampires

People have a strong perception of myths and shocking tales that they want to involve you in them. Such stories should not deter you from focusing on important things.

When you will become married or engaged

There is nothing as derogatory as when you are asked when you will be settling down or tying the knots. Perhaps people are attaching their happiness to this factor; you shouldn’t.

What have you done with your life

Life is a movement and an endless cycle of events. You should enjoy the thrill of every experience you pass through and not become overburdened with your life’s low moments. You should focus on what you are doing with your life rather than what is in the past and you really can’t change.

Growing old

Growing old is a certainty; we are all going to reach it. Attaching any more importance to it than the certainty of facing it can be a drag and cause you unnecessary anxiety. Focus on the moment. Enjoy your youth!

Your failed relationships

Heartbreaks can be devastating. But if you have been pushed out the door from a marriage or a relationship, it is important you shouldn’t beat yourself about it. You don’t need to let the negativity of what didn’t succeed become a constant cause of worry.

Losing your job

The heartache of losing your job can cause a whirl of emotions, but if you have been through searching for a job before you can as well repeat the process rather than care so much about what has been lost.

Getting even

To some the idea of letting go doesn’t apply. They feel that they have to pay every tit for tat. But that shouldn’t be you. Focusing on paying back every hurt could make you cold and unforgiving. A negative emotion has a way of affecting your positive energy and attitude.

Missing an opportunity

Opportunities seldom come by according to some. But if you are an interesting and a positive person you should understand a lot of opportunities would come in your life. you can’t be like every other person who is willing to cut corners and act desperately to catch every opportunity.

Getting scammed

We are all duped once in a while. The truth is that there are very few people who have not been stolen from at least once. So why cry at losing what you can recover later.

Buying the next funky product

Two things are implied when a product is popular, new and fantastic – the product will be expensive. Keeping up with the Joneses may not be favorable with your long term success so why associate yourself with popular products that will put a hole in your pocket.

Things you cannot have

A lot is attached to possessions and people tend to measure you according to what you have. But you shouldn’t be bothered about these things.

Others’ opinion of you

What others think about you doesn’t really count. What counts is your opinion of yourself.

How many friends or followers you have on social media

Having many friends or followers on social media could be cool but does not effect your general position in life.

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

The ability to reinvent and redefine yourself is a bold, daring and purposeful choice. It doesn’t just happen. You have to make a conscious, intentional choice and then follow through.

If the thought of forging a new path, changing habits, thought patterns and your inner circle of friends scares you – you’re not alone. Change can be a very scary thing. It takes courage, fortitude and a bit of faith to decide to shed your old self and don a new persona. However, it is one of the most critical processes one must repeatedly endure in the pursuit of destiny. Change unlocks new levels of potential.

The Need for Change

Everyday when we wake up, we make a decision. We decide to follow our routine or we decide to go off script and shake things up a bit. For those who are creatures of habit, routine is comfortable, easy and produces very little stress. The problem with this is, after a while you stop growing.

We all reinvent ourselves at some point in our lives. It is absolutely necessary to achieve certain levels of success.

Reflect back on who you were as a teenager and then who you were at 25. Those are two very different people. Most of us are completely different. Your thought patterns changed, your appearance, job, level of education and even your friends– changed. We like to refer to this as “growing up” or maturing and consider it to be one of life’s natural progressions. However the changes you made were purposeful and deliberate.

This process must be a lifelong and continuous cycle. You are never too old to refresh yourself.

    Signs It’s Time to Redefine

    “Just as established products and brands need updating to stay alive and vibrant, you periodically need to refresh or reinvent yourself.”– Mireille Guiliano

    So how do you know when it’s time for a system upgrade? There are signs along the way that alert you that it is time for an overhaul. The first sign is the feeling of being stuck. If you feel like you are in a rut, you’re bored with life or you need some newness and excitement, a self reinvention may be in order. Re-evaluate your life vision and your goals. Is that vision still valid and are your goals consistent with your vision and–are they achievable? If you are off course, it’s time for a change. If you are not moving forward and making progress, it’s time for a change.

    In life, there’s no such thing as neutrality–you’re either moving forward or you are moving backward. Time constantly moves forward and if you are standing still, you are actually losing ground. No matter your age or stage in life– there is always room for improvement.

    “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis

    The second sign that you are due for a change is the occurrence of major life events in which change is forced upon you. Getting married, starting a new job, being promoted, ending a relationship, becoming a parenting or relocating are all prime opportunities to completely overhaul your life.

    When these major shifts occur in your life–you have to shift with them. You can’t have a single mentality and have a successful marriage. You can’t remain selfish and irresponsible, and raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. You can’t be promoted to a supervisory position and keep the same subordinate attitude. Each level of success requires something different from you.

      Consider, for a moment, Arnold Schwarzenegger. People may have different opinions about his character and some of his life choices, but he is a master at reinventing himself. He achieved the ultimate success as a professional body builder by earning the title “Mr. Universe” three times. He then earned a tremendous amount of fame and fortune in the entertainment industry making action/adventure films. And in his latest role, he served two terms as the Governor of California. He succeeded as a professional body builder, a film star and a politician. Each role required massive amounts of change, commitment, strength and hard work.

      And if Arnold can do it…so can you!
