I have a special treat for you today – after the last few episodes, I have received a LOT of comments and questions about how to not care what other people think about you.
Another way I think of this is how to let people be wrong about you.
And did you know that my podcast episode on exactly this topic was the MOST popular one of 2020? It’s true!
I am one to follow signs that come my way – not signs that tell me about rule – no…as you know by now, I like to break rules that don’t make sense to me as long as they aren’t hurting anyone;) I’m talking about signs from the Universe that something is important.
So, today I wanted to encourage you to listen to this episode and take notes. And if you’ve already heard it, listen to it again
This episode is so important, because we waste so much time, money and energy on caring about what other people think. It keeps us from taking action we want to take, from stopping things we no longer want to do, letting go of things that no longer serve us.
Hell – caring about what other people think and not letting people be wrong about us keeps us from just LOVING ourselves and being happy about the miracles that we ARE.
Letting people be wrong about you is one of the most empowering things you can do for yourself. This month in Freedom School we’re also covering How to Get Shit Done, and what I’ve found is that when I don’t care what other people think, I am WAY more productive. You stop worrying about if something is perfect or obsessing about what so-and-so might think. You just DO the damn thing.
So you see, letting people be wrong about you is good on so many levels. Enjoy – may it be of benefit.
And if you want to dive more deeply into this topic and more like it, come learn with us in Freedom School. Enrollment is closed right now but will be opening soon – join the waitlist at JoinFreedomSchool.com and be the first to know when it does, alright?.

If creating the life you love includes drinking less in the New Year, Freedom School also gives you access to Drink Less, Feel Free, a 4-week program where you learn ways to free yourself from overdrinking. The tools here worked for me – and hundreds of others. You can also give it as a gift to someone you love that has repeatedly told you they wish they didn’t always overdrink. Life is too short to waste hungover or feeling guilty, right? Plus, saying you’ll do something and then not doing it screws with your self-confidence. This program is set up to give you the support and accountability you need.
