Guarding Your Reputation…or living up to it?

Posted by georgiannasaysjustdoyou on February 28, 2011

I was listening to a Wayne Dyer CD again. I like listening on the way to work because it distracts me from the long commute and it helps me focus on the important things in life. My take away from my last drive was the concept of reputation.
He said something very simple and yet so true. He said that our reputation is not with us, it is with other people. Many of us spend a lot of our lives living up to what others think of us or trying to dissuade people from what they think of us. Either way, that’s a lot of energy given to other people that we could be spending on ourselves.

Beware of the pedestal that others put you on…  Whether or not you work hard to get somewhere, your path is constantly changing and only you know where you want to go.  Don’t let others steer you without your permission.

My message has consistently been “Just Do You.” Forget about what other people think, want or push you towards. Apart from your boss, you answer to yourself and if you are your own boss, then you removed that layer.
I don’t mean that you don’t ever take in what other people say, but I do mean that you take it in and decide if it fits because of who you are and what you want. Does it fit with what you want for yourself, for what you see yourself doing and being?

It’s an amazing feeling to free yourself of the burden of pleasing others.  It is enough work getting up every day and making it your own.

I don’t have the answers, but I always have thoughts.  Won’t you share yours?
