We share to our friends, family, therapists, on social media, etc.
People say sharing your thoughts, dreams, goals, plans helps us progress, to move past and move forward.
No, it doesn’t… and here’s why
We share way too much about ourselves. We feel obligated whether it be because of insecurities, the need for attention, to prove to others and ourselves we’re actually doing something or to look more important and better than others… it’s just too much. Social media hasn’t helped in that arena either. We have this inflated self importance, obligation to tell everyone everything. We even take pictures of our meals and share it with the world. NOBODY CARES!
When we keep telling others our thoughts, goals and dreams we’re more likely to not achieve them at all because we’re more worried about the pressure of their opinions on what, how, when we’re doing things so, we never actually end up doing it. Then sometimes we change our mind but, the pressure from telling someone else is making us pursue something we shouldn’t be.
Keep it to yourself and just do it. Then you won’t have to worry about anyone else.
A fool tells you what he will do; a boaster tells you what he’s done. The wise man does it and says nothing
