…given a choice between the two, which would you pick?
Obviously happiness, you say.
There’s no choice.
But the reality is different.
If you didn’t care about opinions you’d be writing an email today.
If you didn’t care about opinions you’d be writing a book today.
If you didn’t care about opinions you’d be playing the starring role in your video today.
But you’re not.
You’ve put family, friends, and random people on the Internet, in charge of your life.
‘Don’t draw attention to yourself.’
‘Play it safe.’
‘What if people don’t like this?’
…are the mantra’s in your head.
Opinions or happiness.
Maybe it’s time for a rethink?
And speaking of happiness.
For seven quid, it’s happiness all wrapped up in a nice little package.
It’s just up to you to stop paying attention to other people’s opinions and actually go make your books.
