A golden (square) rule to let go of what others think of you

See the little gold square? Care this much about what others think of you. There’s only room on it for the names of people whose opinion of you truly does matter. Let the rest go.

What’s in your wallet? I carry a few talismans. Words don’t change lives. But the thoughts and feelings they conjure have the power to lift you up.

  • I am enough. I have enough. I do enough.

Who said it? I’m so grateful! Worthiness is the foundation of our happiness. Say it to yourself often. Say ‘I am worthy.’ Because you are.

It’s effective for soothing any lack mentality that arises and opens you to abundance.

“Dear God and Archangel Gabriel, thank you for giving me the courage, focus, and motivation to write. Thank you for helping me hear true Divine messages that I can express through the written word.”

  • And then there’s my little golden square, which came to me via Brene Brown. Her recommendation for remembering who counts in your life:

“I carry a small sheet of paper in my wallet that has written on it the names of people whose opinions of me matter. To be on that list, you have to love me for my strengths and struggles. You have to know that I’m trying to be wholehearted, but I still cuss too much, flip people off under the steering wheel, and have both Lawrence Welk and Metallica on my iPod.”

I take great comfort in the fact that you are none of my business. And that most people aren’t interested in me. Not caring about what others think isn’t the same as not caring. When we stop being motivated by fear of judgement, criticism or comparison – favorable or unfavorable – it frees us to take our inner actions as well as our interactions to a higher level. Which results in higher performance, fulfillment, contentment, and overall well-being. When we stop competing in the self-judgment arena, we win.

Is what others think of you important to you? How do you maintain equilibrium? What’s in your wallet?

Bonus inspiration: Here’s what the Abraham Hicks-Law of Attraction community has to say about When Others Are Evaluating You–or when you just think they are.

I take a lesson from the free-range hens and roosters of Key West. They don’t care who’s looking at them. They cluck (non-maliciously) and crow as they please. Dig it!
