Think... For Yourself

"As for worrying about what other people might think - forget it. They aren't concerned about you. They're too busy worrying about what you and other people think of them." ~ Michael le Boeuf

This is so true! It reminds me of something author and leadership expert Dr. John Maxwell often quoted. He said you wouldn’t worry so much what other people thought of you if you knew how rarely they did!

So, get over yourself! People are not thinking about you. In fact, they aren’t thinking of much of anything. They are rehashing yesterday’s fears, worries and doubts; so they really aren’t thinking at all.

But you can be the change you would like to see in your world. Instead of thinking about what other people are thinking about, think about thinking for a change. Did I completely confuse you?

What I mean is, think about what you are thinking about. Are you too rehashing yesterday’s junk? Or, are you really thinking a new thought? Are you being creative, thinking about new ideas and new innovations, and things you can do to become a better you? This is where your mind need to be – in becoming a bigger, better, more powerful you! Check out my post, "I Think...Therefore I AM."

So, just for today, stop thinking about what someone else is thinking about you – because chances are, they aren’t!

Stop rehashing and start thinking!
