I recently read a profound paragraph in the new book that I’ve bought. It’s called The 18/40/60 Rule. It says:
“When you’re 18, you worry about what everybody is thinking of you; when you’re 40, you don’t give a darn what anybody thinks of you; when you’re 60, you realize nobody’s been thinking about you at all.”
Surprise, surprise! Most of the time, nobody’s thinking about you at all!
They are too busy worrying about their own lives, and if they are thinking about you at all, they are wondering what you are thinking about them!
People think about themselves, not you.
All the time you are wasting worrying about what other people think about your ideas, your goals, your clothes, your hair, and your home could all be better spent on thinking about and doing the things that will achieve your goals.
