You cannot control what others may choose to think of you. What you can control is your actions, reactions, and self- approval. Worrying about what others think takes you away from your own center and deter you from living in harmony with your goals.

By constantly trying to win others‘ approval, you expend energy that could be devoted to yourself and to your close ones.

Look within to find your true value. The whole world may think you to be remarkable, but that does not necessarily make you so. You need to look deep within to find your true worth, to determine whether you are living in harmony with your best self.

Similarly, just because someone else says you are no good does not make you so. Listen to everyone but make your own decisions
There is no harm in listening to others, but ultimately you need to trust your own intuition to make decisions. A useful aid to decision-making is to examine how the decision adheres to your goals and purpose.

My late colleague Dr. Wayne Dyer sums it up beautifully: “All those who have ever made a difference in any profession have listened to the inner music and proceeded independent of the opinions of others. That was certainly true of one of my favorite nonconformists, Henry David Thoreau, who walked to the beat of a different drum and followed the beliefs of his conscience. He knew that the beat you hear within yourself is your connection to your soul’s purpose.”
