Do you listen to your heart and instincts? Do you follow your passion and create a life you have imagined? I believe that living on own terms, mind your business and never waiting for approval from anyone is like hitting the jackpot.
There are too many haters and losers in this world for you to worry about their meaningless opinions. You can work in third world countries, in the poorest part of the world with dying children without making a dime (which isn’t something many people desire as a lifestyle, and people will still be jealous of you because they admire you too much and doubt themselves. So, what it the best way to go? Apparently, not give a damn.
The best thing about following your heart is that you feel great. I am not talking about disrespect or ignorance to others. I mean simply doing what you want and that’s it. No hard feelings towards people’s opinion. If you can reach this point in your life, you are free. Let’s take a look at 5 ways how to mind your own business and follow your heart.
1. Don’t apologize
First thing, don’t be sorry for who you are or what you want. If someone doesn’t like it, they need to get out of your way. You are living your life not to please other but to first, make yourself happy. Don’t feel bad if someone doesn’t approve your decisions and steps.
Some people tend to apologize for being them. It is a result of lower self-esteem or desire to please everyone. But don’t forget that people who truly care and love you will have respect and accept your decisions. But those who do the opposite, individuals who try to force you to act as they want and don’t respect your space and individuality, these are the ones I would reconsider hanging out with.
2. Follow your instinct
Have you ever experienced the feeling of doing something or act in a certain way but didn’t know the reason? No matter what others said or what was the “right” thing to do, you did what your gut told you to do because that’s how you felt it. Instinct is very powerful, and most of the time, it is right.
No matter how much your close family of friends try to force their opinion on your, always follow your heart and do what your guts tell you to. Yes, you may fell. You can be intentionally directed towards failure because there is something you need to learn or experience. Don’t doubt your instincts; you have then for a reason.
3. Get used to criticism
If people criticize you, congratulation. You must do something right. Following your heart and proving others that their gossips or criticism don’t bother you create power, courage and strength. You are becoming immune towards negativity and discouragement and personally grow.
Instead of looking at criticism as something that bothers you or hurt you, take is a positive sign of your progress and confidence. Don’t be afraid to be judged; you are going to be criticized anyway so why not for something that truly counts?
4. Take constant action
Get busy. Make a plan of what you want to go after it. Build your dreams. Don’t get caught up with those who try to discourage you. You should dedicate them as little time as possible if any. This is your dream and your vision, and not matter how ridiculous it seems or sound, work hard.
I believe that sometimes when you have your goals, and you know they are big and they require all your strength and mind power; you need to disappear. You need to fade away from others sight and direct all your focus on the goal.
5. Smile and nod – then do what the heck you want to do
Since some people are too close to you as your family and they will maybe never understand your journey, you don’t want to argue with them or disrespect them. Remember that your life is your business, but being rude to people who want to tell you otherwise or treat them poorly is not a way you want to go.
Hear out their opinion, think about it if you feel you need to and then follow your instinct. Will they like it? Maybe no but who cares? This is your life, your journey, your growth, your happiness. One thing I know for sure that people who are living someone else’s life and their dreams got buried, they can hardly ever share happiness and positivity with others since the frustration is bigger than that.
