We’re so good at undermining our confidence. We let imaginary voices water down our true nature. We live in a story where we’re the center of attention.
There’s an even scarier truth: Nobody cares about you. Nobody is thinking about you. Everyone is too self-obsessed to care about anyone else.
Sure, your family and partner care. Some of your close friends. But even many of them care only to a point. They're too busy worrying about their own stories.
We fear people are waiting for us to trip and fall. Let's say that's true. Maybe 10% of people you know are happy to see you fail. So what? You’re probably happy to see them fail too.
The other 90% of people? They already forgot your thing ever happened. They’re too busy thinking about themselves to think about you.
Go for what you really want. Nobody cares about you.
