As a Small Business Owner, you do your best to be kind, generous, and helpful to people.

This is a good thing, keep doing it.

But do you also spend time worrying about what people think about you?

And does this sometimes keep you from taking action in your business?

There is a key distinction between caring about people and worrying about what they think about you.

You can’t control what people think about you. They will think what they want no matter what you do.

You are the only person who can control what you think about you.

So get clear about that for yourself and then you’ll be able to relax and stop stressing out about what people think about you.

Such freedom!

In this video, I share ways to shift your thoughts about what people think about you and your business.

Which one of these quotes resonates the most with you?

“Care about people’s approval, and you will always be their prisoner.” Lao Tzu

“There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.” Aristotle

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” Dr. Seuss

“You probably wouldn’t worry about what people think of you if you could know how seldom they do!” Olin Miller

For more about not taking things personally, check out my post: Why You Shouldn’t Take it Personally When it Comes to Your Marketing.

This is based on one of The Four Agreements by Miguel Ruiz which is, “Don’t Take Anything Personally.”

And under the video on the post, there are links to additional posts that address the other agreements which are: Don’t Make Assumptions, Always Do Your Best, and Be Impeccable With Your Word. 

Do you ever feel blocked about taking action because of worry about what people will think?
