Often times, what holds us back from taking a risk or trying something new is nothing more than our fear of what others will think.
We are afraid that the hiring manager won’t like us, our presentation will suck, or our project will fail and people will laugh.
It’s the people who learn to control those fears, subjugate themselves to high pressure environments, and set impossible deadlines who surpass everyone else.
Because at the end of the day, people don’t care.
They are too preoccupied worrying about what others are thinking of them to waste their energy worrying about you.
Once you understand that people care much less than you think they do, everything becomes easier.
But here’s the curveball: the secret is learning how to make people like you without caring if they like you.
You have to learn how to not care what other people think, yet care about what they think you should improve.
The people you admire are not begging you to like them, and neither should you.
