There are two types of people in this world: the lions and the sheep, or the alpha’s and beta’s of society. Then you have the useless insects that have found little purpose within their lives and are too afraid to do anything to change so they just sit on the side lines and talk more shit than the sheep do.

As the good old fashioned saying, goes great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. People love to gossip way too much these days. Too many people gossip about the excitement in the lives of others to feel better about the lack of depth they experience each day.

To shit on someone when they are being a crappy person is fine because they deserve it but to sit there and constantly worry about what others are doing does nothing to help you and wont get you anywhere in life.

You need to look yourself in the mirror and recognize what type of person you really are. Are you a lion or are you just going to be a sheep all your life? Are you going to just discuss what happens in the world by giving your opinion on Facebook or Twitter? Are you going to be a small mind that just worries about what others are doing with themselves? Or are you going to be a great mind, think for yourself and actually do something with your ideas?

If you haven’t been a lion thus far then it’s time to become one right now. Worrying about what others are doing will not make your life any better whatsoever. The lion does not worry about what the sheep have to say about them. The lion also doesn’t seek attention and approval to feel good about him or herself. There is only one opinion about yourself you should worry about, and that is your own.

As an alpha in this world, you need to break away from the sheep mindset. The sheep worry about what other sheep say about them because they are members of the same social class. The reason the lion doesn’t care is because he knows he is dominant and the opinions of others don’t alter his actions. The easiest way to become a nobody who doesn’t stand out is to sit there and monitor what everyone is saying about you so you can change yourself based on their standards.

But if you do indeed want to break through the status quo and make something out of your life, you need to attain the confidence to make you understand that you are a force to be reckoned with, no matter what others say about you. You must remember that there is no such a thing as right and wrong. There is only perception.

If it feels right to you and you are passionate about it, it’s yours, do whatever you want with it. Use what is in your heart to make a name for yourself.  Do you know how many people are going to tell you it is not going to work out while you climb the ladder to success?

Respect is earned, not given and if you want it then you are going to have to silence the critics with your hard work and success instead of with comments on social media platforms. Sheep are always going to talk because they are angry that they never reached the type of success you will attain or had the courage to try. Those who don’t do, talk.

The sheep thrive in destroying other peoples dreams and love breaking someone down to bring them down to their level so that they can feel more comfortable about themselves.

In a world that is made up of young adults stalking each other and gossiping to numb their insecurities, please rise above this rubbish and worry about the direction of your own life, not somebody else’s. Besides, no gossip can be heard from the top of the totem pole, regardless of how loud, consistent or “true” it is.
