Self Growth Tip
When I was younger, like many others, I always worried about how others thought of me as well as what to do if they ended up saying negative things to me. I no longer have this issue but there are a lot of people out there that still do. These people are trapped in a way because they worry about other people’s perceptions of them. So I decided to shoot a new video with a self growth tip on how to manage this type of issue.
It’s really a two step strategy here. If you ever start to feel doubt or worries about how other people think about you or what they say, the first thing to do is STOP what you are doing.
Then immediately go to the next step which is to ask yourself the following question;
“How important is this other person’s opinion to my success?”
If you answer this question with some logic, the answer would most likely be that this other person’s opinion is ‘not very important’ to your success. Your success will NOT be dependant on how this person thinks of you or even what they say to you.
It’s like, who really cares about what the stranger on the street or on the bus really thinks of you? That person’s opinion should have no bearing on what you can achieve in life.
If this is the case, then you should NOT WASTE ANY emotional energy worrying about how this person thinks or his/her feedback. It’s just NOT important.
This is how I’ve been able to manage this type of issue ever since I learned this valuable self growth tip in a management training seminar when I was in the corporate sector. It’s actually one of the more useful things I learned in the corporate world.
Sometimes Opinions Do Matter
Now to be realistic, of course sometimes other people’s opinions do matter. For example, if this other person happens to be your boss, teacher, coach, key customer or significant other, then you should probably take his or her opinion seriously since it will affect your success on some level.
But in all other cases, you will quickly come to a conclusion that opinions of many other people, especially if they are ignorant, really do NOT matter. Therefore, you should not get too worked up over them.
Here is my Motivational WebTV episode on this same strategy to help you really understand it better.
