Stop Living By the Rules of Other People!

At one point or another many of us have either cared about what other people thought about us or have allowed naysayers to block the path to us moving forward. I totally get it. But what I don't get is why some people continue that way of living to the point that they are not even living the life they desire to live, because they are living the life that others desire for them to live.There is nothing wrong with taking some advice from others, especially when it is done out of love and concern, but don't allow people to put you in a box.People are always going to have something to say. So if they are going to talk you might as well be living a life that makes you happy, right?people allow the fire for their dreams to get snuffed out because someone doubted them, or because someone told them that their dream was too difficult to achieve, or because someone didn't support them.we can't allow what other people think or say to keep us chained to a life of settling.

There has to be a mindset shift that occurs. We have to get to that point where we think and believe in a way that is in alignment with what we want to see manifest in our life.that mean that things will be easy when we are working toward a goal? No it doesn't. But what it does mean is that we are not going to kill our dreams before they even get birthed, and we are not going to allow anyone else to do it either.walking around with a dream stuck in your heart. Who is that helping? It isn't helping anyone.When God places a dream in your heart it should be big, right? He is a big God so why would He give you a small dream?because your dream is too big for others to conceive doesn't mean that it is too big for you to achieve.never ever shrink down your dream to fit the small thinking of others. That is only going to make you feel discouraged and frustrated. And it can also cause you to be stuck in neutral, instead of moving forward. It is time for you to unleash the confidence to not only follow your dreams but to achieve them. And don't let anything stop you. You are amazing, you are driven, and you are powerful. And you've got this! Think about the bigger picture

We all have a finite amount of time in which to live our lives, and every day that goes by is one day less you have to live a life that’s true to yourself.Taking a step back, considering the bigger picture, and remembering that your time is limited can help you stay focused on your real dreams and goals, rather than the dreams or goals you think you should have. Invest in your self-awareness

Therapy, coaching, and self-work like journaling are all useful tools for life transitions, including moving towards a life that is more satisfying and meaningful to you.Not only will these tools support you through the process of questioning your beliefs, but they will also help you uncover your authentic values, and look ahead to create a vision for a life that is truly yours.Remember that it’s your life

As obvious as it might sound, remember that your life is your your own and that, as much as other people might give you advice, you are the one who will have to live with the consequences of that advice. Keeping this reality in mind can help you distance yourself from other people’s opinions and beliefs. Every now and again we all run into that person who gives us unwanted advice, who introduces us to “the rules of reality. I could never understand why such people believed it all right to do so — if they were reciting these rules from a book, I sure as hell have never laid eyes upon it. Life has no rules.This is what people fail to realize. Sure, the town you live in has rules. The country you live in has rules. The workplace you work in has rules.“I'm the one that's got to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life the way I want to.” – Jimi Hendrix

If the life that you have now really is the only life you will ever have, then why are you allowing others to tell you how you should live it?Why should anyone care if you choose to tattoo every inch of your body or make amateur porn videos on a daily basis? Why should anyone else care if you eat like a pig?

We really are free to live our lives however we wish and to make of them whatever we want to make of them. There will always be people that will tell you otherwise, that will expect and command that you conform — but you can just tell them to f*ck off. If you feel that your life is being run by someone other than you, then you must break that chain around your neck and begin truly living.We can all break free of the mundane sameness that we are subject to — we ourselves choose to live the way that we are living. We may rationalize our situations and tell ourselves that we are purely the children of our circumstances, but that’s complete crap. If you are in a bad situation and don’t plan on getting out of it, then you are choosing to stay in a bad situation. You are making the conscious decision not to take hold of your life and to change it the way you see fit.“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”- Oscar Wilde

What is it that you want out of life? Where do you wish to go? What do you wish to see? What experiences do you want to have? Whom do you want to share them with? Too few people take the time to think about such things. They simply go through their daily routines, passing time. One day time will run out and that clock will no longer tick.
