What will they think of me?

We often place the heaviest emphasis in making important decisions by answering the internal voice that asks “what will they think of me?”

Even if your decision will cause others to have (or worse, VOICE) negative opinions of you, they’ll be short-lived and likely exaggerated. Our egos delude us into thinking that people are climbing on each other’s shoulders just to get a better view of us. They’re not. Look around. Their heads are down looking at their phones.

Recognize and replace this with a better question: “is this decision in the best interest of myself and those closest to me?” If you make decisions for good reasons, those that matter don’t care, and those that care don’t matter.
