Do you care what other people think of you? Have you ever wanted to do something, then stopped your self because you were scared of what other people might think of you?
A truly Alpha man does not care what other people think. A lion does not concern himself with the opinions of sheep, and in this article, I am going to go over the concept that changed my entire outlook on life.
Here is a short video going over some of the things I will talk about:
In this article, I am going to go over how to ignore people. If you want to ignore people you need to make the decision that you don’t want to be a sheep for your whole life, make the decision to be a man, and to live life on your own terms.
Let’s first talk about why we are conditioned to care what other people think about us:
When we first start school, we are told to sit down and be quiet, we are told not to run, don’t miss behave, we are told to fit in. We are essentially told to not express our selves in any way shape or form. And if you have a little more energy than the average person like I did, we are rewarded with detention. The problem here is that when we express ourselves in a unique way, we are punished.
And when we do not express ourselves and fit in with everyone else, we are rewarded with a gold star. This is conditioning our brain to associate expression, with negativity and punishment, and to associate fitting in, with a gold star. At a young age our brains are very sensitive to these kinds of things, and this can cause early childhood trauma that can be present for the rest of our lives.
Let’s say we survive the education system and we are now out in the real world. We are now working men, and you need to wear a suite, a tie, black pants, done up hair, nice shoes, nice watch. And if you come in one day looking even a little bit off, you might get called into the office and you will be asked “is everything okay? We have an image we have to maintain and we can’t have you looking different from everyone else” Again, we are punished for expression and rewarded for fitting in.
If you are on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, or even email, the communication with people Is instant and abundant. If you ever have wanted to put your self out there in a creative way, like a youtube video, or even a Facebook post, to be transparent with everyone, you will either be loved or immediately attacked by the masses. Both are demons that will destroy your art. Typically when we put our selves out there, people talk about us behind our backs, and people make fun us, there is a mentality of “Just get a job and be normal like everyone else”
This is my advice on how to deal with this, If you want to ignore everyone we need to take advice from our neighborhood bird, yes, that’s right, a bird. I’ll give an example.
It’s 6 in the morning and there is a bird outside, he is chirping. A man walks by, and hears the bird, and he thinks to himself “wow, this is the most beautiful sounding bird that I have ever heard” and the man adores the bird. But the bird is not really impacted by this love, the bird is just doing what he does every day, which is simply chirping in the morning. Now let’s imagine there is a man who is trying to sleep in the building next to the bird, and this man get’s woken up by the chirping.
This man is so mad, he is trying to sleep for the first time in weeks and this stupid bird is not letting it happen. This man genuinely hates the bird. But, the bird is not impacted by this, the bird is simply doing what he does best, and keeps chirping away, unaffected by the hate or the love.
The point is, the bird is just doing him, he does not care about the love, the hate, the envy, he is doing what he does best. The bird in this example represents the alpha man. Really think about the fact, that someone LOVED the bird, and someone HATED the bird. But either way, the bird does not care.
I invite you to take this concept into your own life, do what you do best, ignore the love, and the hate. And just Be you.
