“Some People Will Never Like You Because Your Spirit Irritates Their Demons.”

Is this amazing?

Do they give Oscars for quotes cause this for sure deserves one?

This quote is from Denzel Washington from one of his speeches.

Who is Denzel Washington?

He is considered one of the greatest actors of all time.

The big idea here is that not everyone will like you as you will not like everyone.

But let’s focus on the questions that people often ask themselves: “How can I be liked by everyone?” or “Why don’t people like me?”

And even though our brain can come up with the nastiest answers ever, the truth is that sometimes you might not get the response you want from another person because you might trigger inside the other person something that makes them feel uncomfortable, or other times just because of simple incompatibility.

Here’s how this applies to us and self-worth:

If you want to increase your self-worth and confidence, stop worrying about getting yourself to be liked by everyone and worrying if there is something wrong with you.

Never lower your standards or stop yourself from doing what makes you happy to be liked at all costs!!

The world is full of insecure people who want you to conform to their standards, but let’s be real — their standards are low, and you are way better than that.

So, let’s put this into action:

  1. Stop trying to be liked by everyone. You are not pizza
  2. Don’t worry about what others think or say. It’s none of your business
  3. Start focusing on yourself… for once.
  4. Decide to live your life according to who you are or want to be
  5. Find out what truly matters to you by taking the time you need to think about what that is
  6. Once you’ve found out, write down 5 things that truly matter to you
  7. Rate them from 1 to 5
  8. Adjust your list according to your rating, putting number 1 first
  9. Start taking daily actions towards achieving the things on your list from the top down without worrying about what others think or say
  10. Stay true to yourself and have fun creating the life you’ve always wanted because you are worth it and because you deserve it all.

Oh, and before I forget…
