Today I wanted to share with you something that I found quite interesting and we picked it up at the success summit two and the question is, are you swimming in the GOOOP?
What is the gooop? Well, gooop stands for “good opinion of other people”. And there are so many people who are stuck in the gooop because they can't do anything unless other people think good about it, unless other people accept them for it, unless other people say it's okay to do that. So many people are stuck in life, they're not making progress in life, and they are not achieving their dreams, they not achieving the goals because they are stuck in the gooop because they are so tied to the good opinion of other people. God forbid, they'll do something that other people won't approve, God forbid they'll do something that other people will criticise them for IT? Well, here's the news, guys, if you don't want to be criticised, here's the formula if you don't want to be criticised, “do nothing, say nothing and be nothing”, then nobody will criticise you ever. You'll be absolutely fine, but who wants a life like that where you do nothing, say nothing and you are nothing?
You want to stand for something! They say if you don't stand for something, then you'll fall for anything and when you think about people who achieved big things in the world, people who achieved big things in history, very often they were going against the grain, very often they were not doing the things that other people approved, they were not doing the things that other people had good opinion about, but they did it anyway and look where they are now. They're in the history books, they are being recognised as pioneers, as leaders, as achievers, so grow up to be okay with not being liked by other people. It's called “social freedom”. Being okay, being grown up enough to be okay that other people might not liking you that other people might not talk good things about you, that other people might not approve of you and it's absolutely fine. Other people's opinion about you is none of your business
Other people's opinion about you is none of your business because there's nothing you can do about it, you can't change other people's opinion about you, you can't force them to think in a certain way about you, they'll think whatever they think about you but it's none of your business, what matters is what YOU think about you and as long as you have a good opinion about yourself, as long as you know that you on the mission, as long as you know that you trying to achieve something big, what other people think of you and other people's opinions have nothing to do with your success. Other people's opinions are not going to pay your bills, other people's opinion are not going to pay your car payment or pay your mortgage, other people's opinions are not going to get your kids to private education, other people's opinions are not going to allow you to travel all over the world, what’s going to do all of those things is your actions, but if you are being paralysed by other people's opinion, by having to get other people's good opinion before you can do something, then it's game over. And very often, if you want to achieve something big, if you want to become successful in business, if you want to become great singer, actor, artist, I don't know whatever, it almost without exception, you're going to have some haters, you're going to have some people who hate on you, who criticise you, who ridicule you, who try to pull you down, etc.
Even Facebook lives, I'm actually surprised I'm not getting any haters. I was hoping to get some haters, I was hoping to get some people who go, “Oh, you’re crap, get away, get over yourself.” Whatever. And I haven't had any haters yet. I'm really surprised to be honest with you because usually, there's so many people who do nothing by themselves but they're the first ones to criticise other people, they're the first ones to go, “Oh you are crap, you’re rubbish, your video sucks, whatever.”
For some reason, I'm not getting them so far. Maybe I'm that scary, just again, goes to prove that you don't have to have good looks to do Facebook Lives. So that's why first step, if you want to become successful at something is stop worrying what other people will think of you, stop worrying what will happen, you don't get stuck in the gooop, good opinion of other people. Don’t worry about it! If you get over that, trust me sky's the limit, you can achieve almost anything you want. If you just chase a dream, if you go and achieve whatever you want to achieve without worrying what other people think.
I hope you got some value from the blog post, if you did feel free to share it.
Yours in success
