Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
Don Miquel Ruiz- The Four Agreements
This lesson was one of the most difficult for me and I believe most others as well to learn. The fear of criticism is one of the greatest fears. That is why people would rather die than speak on stage. I used to be petrified to speak in public. My voice would crackle and my body would shake from fear. However now I absolutely love it! By facing your fear, it will loss its hold on you. If people criticize you for doing something that isn’t to their liking, it’s their issues, not yours. They owe it, not you!
Be true to you and give no attention to the people how put you down. Give your best, be your best and let the rest fall away. Own your power!!!

Life really does begin outside your comfort zone. Playing it safe will never develop character, strength, or confidence. If you want more you must stretch yourself. Becoming a public speaker is most people’s number one fear. It certainly was for me. My voice used to crackle if I had to speak in public. But now, I love it! I overcame my fear because I wanted to be an empowerment coach. I didn’t allow the fear to stop me from pursuing my desire. I urge you to go ahead and step into your uncomfortable zone. What is it that you want? Give it a try. Then do it again and again. Soon, you will have gotten comfortable with what at one time was uncomfortable. Then you will have to stretch again to reach the next level of what ever makes you uncomfortable. You see, life is always expanding and expressing. So step outside your comfort zone to develop your character, strength, and confidence. I’m sure you will be happy that you did!
