Releasing our grip on what other people think is a fast way to experience true freedom
What if you could wake up tomorrow and do exactly what you want to do, exactly where you want to do it, with exactly who you want to surround yourself with?
Well, the answer is you can!
The problem is that we think that maybe it’s “too good to be true” or that it’s available only for “those people”, and the answer is that those are just a set of beliefs that might just be standing between you and the life you really want!
The biggest thing that gets in the way of us doing what we really want to do, is the fear of what other people might think of us.
Of course this is a very primal response, as a few hundred years ago we would be nothing short of dead if we were disapproved of by our tribe and left to fend for ourselves.
The reality of it today is that people don’t care nearly as much as we think they do!
Yes, they might gossip or send you a malicious message, but that’s just a reflection of them and some inner struggles that they might be dealing with. There’s a good chance that it’s a matter of jealousy or envy, long story short it is easiest to just say “thanks for your input” and keep moving along.
Ask yourself this:
“What would I be doing if I didn’t care what other people were going to think of me?”

Wiring yourself to be at peace will rapidly improve the quality of your life
Happiness, peace, joy and fulfilment. These are likely four of the most sought-after feelings that drive human behaviour, and they are things we are trained to look for outside of ourself.
In this episode of the Alignment Club Podcast, we discuss the beauty of finding peace within yourself, regardless the situation. We cannot control what life gives to us, but we are always able to control the way in which we do or don’t react.
Nothing has the power to influence the way that we feel until we give it permission. People will cut us off in traffic, look down upon our vocations, tell us are wasting our time, criticize the way we do things; these are reflections of them, not us.
When there is an inner wound that has not been healed, it will be manifested in physical form by lashing out at others or trying to cut them down.
Don’t take things personally, stay in your own lane and thank every person or situation that comes against you as a reminder that you are in control of your life and how you want it to unfold.

A bedtime gratitude exercise that everybody has time for
In the famous book The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles, he explains that “many people who order their lives rightly in all other ways are kept in poverty by their lack of gratitude.”
Being grateful for what we do have makes us a channel for more good to flow into our life. When we disregard all of the things working in our favour, even if they are disguised as difficulties, we seem to continually attract more struggle into our lives.
A powerful way to close out your day is this incredibly simple exercise that not only opens your eyes to the good in your life, but also forces your subconscious mind to continue scanning for more things to be grateful for.
When we are grateful, we are not in fear.
Closing out your day in a thankful manner
Grab a journal or a blank piece of paper and write today’s date at the top of the page. Next, write the following sentence:
“My three favourite parts about today were…”
Even if you felt like you had the worst day in existence, they could be as simple as “I woke up and said hi to my spouse, my coffee machine worked another day, I was able to put food on my table once again”
Even on the most difficult of days, being grateful puts you in a place of more than enough, and in short time you will continue to be met with more situations in alignment with abundance.
Instead of starting the day by opening our smartphones to see what the world thinks of us, how many notifications we have, what our inbox looks like, how busy we have to show everyone we are, what if it were the norm to spend the first hour of the day being grateful for being alive?
“Start by opening your eyes, and be amazed that you have eyes that you can open”
The chances of being born into the parents you were born into is 1:400,000,000,000,000 (that’s four hundred trillion!!). When you move through your day from a state of gratitude, you become untouchable. Small things do not bother you, and you become a magnet for an endless stream of good things!
