Don't listen to what other people think. This is for you and you alone. Everyone thinks they know what you are or aren't doing. Be polite but stay focused on your own goals not what others believe your goals should be.

    It all goes back to the saying - "to thine own self be true" thank you for the reminder.

    This is EXCELLENT advice. Don't give others power over you. Influence is fine when it's positive.

    Don't listen to what others think is great. I would add even to begin to distinguish when those voices are in my own head. I'm tough on myself and want to make sure I am clear about what works for me when I am clear headed! emoticon
