Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor. – Brian Tracy
The rudder of a sailboat doesn’t control the sea, but it does make a huge difference in where the boat goes.
Goals are much the same.
Without goals, one is rudder-less, blown about by the sea.
But, with goals, one has a direction and a means of managing forward progress – a way to steer one’s ship.
Do not give your attention to what others do or fail to do; give it to what you do or fail to do. – Buddha

“What is it about you that I don’t like about me?”
That usually does the trick . . . .

Just let that one sink in for a minute . . . .
As a solid rock cannot be moved by the wind, the wise are not shaken by praise or blame. – Buddha
I heard Wayne Dyer say one measure of a healthy Ego is to be independent of the good and bad opinion of others.
I have to agree with Wayne and the Buddha.
