Many of us actually really care about what others really think.
So much so that we lose track of how to set goals for ourselves.
If you can’t set a goal that’s really just for you, will you really enjoy it when you get there?
If your goal is about what others think, will you ever be happy with the end goal. Because a persons opinion of you is always different and ever changing.
Today I want to share with you a story that will shock you a little and remind you just how little others opinions matter. Also to remind you to go take action after reading this post and set goals that only you really care about for yourself.
Set Goals That Are All About You
If you’ve been here for a while you know I’ve had my fair share of people’s opinions, such as being asked if I was pregnant when I definitely wasn’t.
And I’ve always tried to share those stories with you to remind you that the only opinion that matters is your own.
So what happens when someone has an opinion that hits a sore spot and it was something that had already crossed your mind?
Nothing happens. You do you.
Just a couple of days ago, I was hitching back to town after a great morning of snowboarding. I crossed paths with a lovely gentleman whom I got to know briefly on the ride back.
After discovering that I moved to Canada on my own and that I recently celebrated my 27th birthday. He mentioned that: “Although it is not politically correct you do need to think about things like your body clock”.
Basically suggesting that if I wanted kids, I’d better think about it sooner rather than later.
Now don’t get me wrong – it wasn’t necessarily out of the blue. But it DEFINITELY was not his place to say.
There are a number of things wrong with this that I don’t even want to delve into.
I just want to share again, that people will always have their opinions on things you do or don’t do and what they think you should or should not be doing.
But WHO CARES.
It’s going to happen no matter what.
So this year, set goals that you want to achieve. This year, reach goals that you want to reach. And don’t stop until your done. Surround yourself with the support network and knowledge of people who will help get you there not bring you down.
