The Life You Don't Lead


Oscar Wilde said: One's real life is often the life that one does not lead.

Why would the life that one doesn't lead be one's real life? Think for a moment how frequently you get side-tracked by what others think. You have a plan or a desire or an idea, and then, because of censure you feel you might receive from others or because someone says something to you that is critical or derisory about what you are planning, you set your own ideas aside.

Just like that hey have been annihilated. Blown away like leaves in the wind. And you can't really blame the other person - they merely stated their opinion. The problem is that you listened, and let it affect you to the point that you buried your own thoughts and are now living life - at least in this regard - according to what the other person has said, and so now where is your own life?

See also my March 2006 newsletter: Intentional Focus: Your Happiness, Your Success, and the Law of Attraction and my August 2007 newsletter: Making Fear of the Unknown Work for You.

So once you recognize that you aren't leading the life you wish to lead, you need to make some changes. Most of them have to do with becoming aware of your own thoughts about things that are said to you, how you then react to those thoughts, and even whether you decide to share information to others. But remember: sometimes the censure you receive is totally based on your thoughts of what others think as opposed to what anyone has said, hence learning to deal with your own thoughts is paramount. Look under the label for thoughts below this article to find previous posts about the subject, with information about how to be the one who is in charge of your thoughts and reactions, as opposed to being at their mercy.
