Take the time to positively affirm your dreams, visions and heart-felt goals. Do not bury them because of others’ opinions, perceptions, and judgments about them, because whenever you subordinate your dreams and desires to another, you go against your intrinsic nature, which is to radiate, expand, and grow.
Do you ever wake up and say, “I want to shrink. I want to do less, be less, amount to less?” No! So, that is why when someone says something that puts you down, you feel awful. The key is to remember that whether people agree with you or disagree with you, they are simply providing you with their opinion. It is only if you also think so, that you will feel good or bad accordingly.
