Unleash your Potential

"No matter who you are or what you did; there will always be

somebody who will not approve of you. So don't try to live

your life trying to please everybody."

As babies we want to get attention, so we smile or laugh and

make others laugh back at us. When they don't give us

attention we cry and then for sure we get it.

As we grow older we get a bit more sophisticated-- if we

don't get love, attention, approval or acknowledgement, we

break things in the house, or we "accidentally" spill milk

on the floor, or we forget to take the dog for a walk and

voila - the stink and the mess on the carpet gets us a LOT

of attention.

Then we do things and we want people to agree with us--to

tell us it was accepted, beautiful, that it was OK, and that

we are wonderful. There's nothing wrong with liking to hear

compliments or a good word of support. These are all

wonderful. But NEEDING praises is a different matter.

Looking for approval; needing it to move on... Where does it

get us? Whose life are we eventually living? Ours or those

whose approval we need?

Therefore to live your life, to be who you are and who you

want to be--the only approval you need is from yourself.

Be true to yourself. Don't wait for others to give you the

OK to live or how to live.

You are here! You have already gotten a driver's license.

Don't wait for others to drive you around; you don't know

where they'll take you and where you'll end up.

You be the driver of your own car. Set goals, set targets,

get in your car and drive on.

Go to places you want to see, drive fast or slow; don't stop

to ask people whether your driving is acceptable or if your

choices are approved. Follow your own heart, follow your

passion and those who don't approve will be just another

traffic light on your way to your destination.

Remember! The most successful people in the history never

asked permission to follow their quest, never listened to

those who disagreed with their path. They kept on going,

stepping on a few stones here and there but never lost track

of their path and destination.

"So don't try to live your life trying to please everybody."
