Stay True to Yourself.

You’re not forced to do anything you don’t want to do.
I don’t really like watching the news.
To be honest with you, I consciously choose not to watch the news…at all.
Some people think this is ignorant of me because I stay outside of what is going on around the world.
Other’s think “I have to know” what is happening to stay in topic of everyone else’s conversations.
I think I am protecting myself from the negativity that is out there.
A lot of people disagree with my decision and find me to be an ignorant.
I disagree.
We think that because a bigger group of people is doing something, we should join in and do it as well to become part of the community; they think this will bring them happiness, because they’re aware of what is actually happening in the world and can feel included in conversations, giving them a sense of belonging.
I tried really hard to be part of what I thought was the “cool” crowd for such a long time, I started to lose myself along the way. I didn’t know what I liked, I had to ask my “friend’s” for their opinion, I didn’t like something unless someone else did, I wasn’t willing to do anything unless someone else did, etc… you get the point. I started to feel terrified of actually doing something other than what I was used to and I was really frightened by making my own decisions, I started to worry about what other’s would think of me if I behaved differently.
But the minute I made that big jump, of doing something scary for the first time, by myself, without anyone’s judgement coming to mind, I started to feel like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.
I started to realize that those people didn’t matter, their opinion of me didn’t matter to me, specially when it came to my life.
I was being set free by my own choices.
Sometimes we don’t realize that… what’s really good for us, is in our own hands and not in someone who has nothing to do with the life we call our own.
Frankly, there are a lot of people willing to tell you what to do with your life but aren’t willing to look at theirs and take action.
We’re all so quick to judge without checking out our own, and I’m so over it.
We have to learn how to block the opinion’s of other people, pretend your listening and tell yourself to reject it, but acknowledge that you’ve heard their input.
Someone else’s truth doesn’t have to be your own, follow your own path and stay true to yourself.
There will always be someone talking, but it’s your choice to listen or tune out.

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    I also want to improve SEO of my website. Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve:
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Jan Zac
