I tend to go through life thinking that it owes me a living whilst wondering why people don’t just love me for who I am.
This attitude of mine is, not surprisingly, one of the reasons why I don’t progress as far as I could in my chosen fields of endeavour.
This attitude stops me from doing what I know I need to do in order to get on in life.
I need to change my attitude. I need to stop expecting people to be satisfied with the ten per cent I put into them and the ninety per cent I put into myself. I need to do what I know, in my heart, needs to be done in order to achieve what needs to be achieved.
Most people tell you what they want. You don’t have to be a genius to listen to them. Most people will tell you again if you ask them, even if they’ve told you a million times already. People are, in this way, kind. So listen to them.
Unless, of course, you’re happy with being the selfish person you’ve always been. That could work too. So long as you really are happy. Really.
So ask yourself (Robert): are you feeling happy?
