RockStar:60 #22 “I Don’t Care Anymore”
Are you hoping and wishing and wanting something to come true, or come through for you right now? Stop.
Care enough to care less about the end result, and start to care more about the steps of the journey necessary to get there. Not obsessing about outcomes is not the same as not wanting, or not working toward them. Emotionally detaching from the outcome of your endeavors ironically enhances the likelihood that they’ll be realized.
Care less about what you think others think about you. They’re not thinking about you nearly as much as you think they are. Most of them are nobodies from nowhere and are much more worried about themselves than you.
Few ever thought the no-name drummer from the prog-rock band Genesis could successfully replace Peter Gabriel as the lead singer of the band. Even fewer would have bet on the balding and bearded time-keeper would go on to a mega-successful career as a singer/songwriter, solo artist. Phil Collins beat the odds by having the balls and the talent to move into his new role despite the plethora of naysayers.
“I don’t care what you say | I don’t play the same games you play | I don’t care what you say | We never played by the same rules anyway” ~ Phil Collins
When free from the worry and wonder if you’re doing the right things at the right times, the right answers and necessary actions begin to come naturally. Appropriate reactions and effective responses to what happens to you are the key elements that actually foster future success.
So regardless of where you’re at right now… the message is: “It ‘aint over.” There’s going to be another day with opportunities and challenges just on the horizon.
The question is:
Are you ready?
