Walt Disney had the following to say about his movie-making process. And I believe we can (and should) adopt his mantra in what we create,
“We don’t make movies to make money. We make money to make more movies.”
There’s a simple reason you’re getting burned out and not able to succeed. There’s a reason you are working a lot on your ideas but not able to turn them in reality. You are thinking what other’s think about you and your work. You think what other’s will like, you think what other’s will buy, you think what other will bookmark, you think will they like your work or not.
I’ll repeat: Instead of doing what you think others love, do what you know you should do.
Write what naturally flows, sing what you like, draw what you want to, develop a product in which you believe in. Do what is meant to be done.
Walt Disney has it right. The best ideas can be forged by first, simply giving a damn about what you do, and not giving a damn about what everyone else may think.
There’s no better time/place/economy than today to start creating the thing – those things – we want to see exist.
There are many reasons you should know that why you should what you really wanna do and not listen to other’s and ruin your LIFE:
- It’s your life, so it’s none of their business.
- You reap what you sow.
- You are one who will be at end to stuck with final result.
- It’s impossible to please everyone.
- People thoughts change on regular basis.
- It will keep you away from your dreams.
- It’s your life so you know what’s best for you.
I don’t listen to people’s opinion. I have people around me who I can trust, but most of all I listen to myself. Don’t let other’s opinion consume you. We can’t control the filters that other’s choose when they look at us.
The minute you start thinking what other’s feel about you, is the minute you stop being yourself. A tiger doesn’t lose sleep over opinion of sheep. So be a tiger and don’t care what sheep keep telling you because the greatest prison people live in is the fear what other people thinks about them.
