Do you use Instagram? I do. I have just under 200 followers. Wow! I must be popular. Of course there are some people on this app who have millions and millions of followers. The popular kids in school so to speak. It is interesting though when you follow some pages and they give you inspirational quotes and the like. Some are just Internet noise while others actually sound quite good.
Today I would like to go onto Instagram and flip through my feed and look at some of the quotes or motivational words and give you my take on them.
1. The first one is this one:
I find this one extremely interesting because most people ask this question with a verb, do. However, when you answer you are expected to give a noun. Have you ever noticed that? Of course don't focus on what your job title is, you focus on how you contribute. You focus on how you are going to change the world. 99.9% of the people don't want to hear exactly what you do because they can't relate to it. So you have to give a noun but the really interesting people will understand.
Cheers to all the people who just want to be themselves and don't care about fitting in ...
Yep, if only life was that easy. It is a big problem when you are affected by what other people think of you because we are group oriented by nature and when you get the problem of the group running away from you, it can be deadly in some instances but the more you practice "not giving a shit" the easier it will become.
Life is only as good as your mindset:
I've noticed recently that I have had a very negative mindset about most things and it is definitely holding me back. It is definitely slowing me down. I've noticed that the negative mindset, the negative chatter in my head is very nasty and I struggle to control it sometimes.
This is an interesting one too. When you challenge yourself and go against the grain so to speak, the people who are going with the grain will not understand. They will try to tell you that you are wrong and they will try to explain to you that there way is the best for you. You have to stop listening to them and get on with it. Actions speak louder than words.
This is a good one too. You have to accept your current reality. It doesn't mean that you are going to be like that the rest of your life but you have to realise that this is where you are. Forget about the stuff that went in the past. Of cords learn from your mistakes and then believe that everything is going to OK if you work at it of course.
This is a good one to end this for me. I haven't been consistent. I'll do something for a few days and then quit or do something else and then I might come back to it. It isn't good and it hasn't got me anywhere in the last few years. My goal is to be consistent for the next week and then the following week and so on. Good luck to me.
