Success isn’t a popularity contest!!

The other day , I was reading a book by Robin Sharma and stumbled across the below beautiful lines

It doesn’t matter what other people think of you . All that matters is what you think of you . We waste so much energy worrying about the opinions of others , wanting to be liked , needing to please . But authentic leadership and real personal mastery are all about rising above social approval – to self-approval . Respect you . So long as you are living by your values , being authentic , running your own race and doing your dreams , why worry what anyone else thinks or feels or says about you? Success isn’t a popularity contest . And at the end of each day , what matters most is whether you were true to yourself

It has changed the way I live my daily life !!!!!

Life is not a race#Amazing lines#Mustread for all

Have you ever watched kids

On a merry go round ?

Or listened to the rain

Slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?

Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast .

Time is short.

The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day

On the fly?

When you ask: How are you?

Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done ,

Do u lie in your bed

With the next hundred chores

Running through your head ?

You’d better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast .

Time is short.

The music won’t last.

Ever told your child,

We’ll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,

Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,

Let a good friendship die

Cause you never had time

To call and say “Hi”?

When you run so fast to get somewhere

You miss half the fun of getting there

When you worry and hurry through your day,

It is like an unopened gift thrown away.

Life is not a race.

Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before the song is over.
