Key Lesson

The more you talk about yourself, the less people want to hear.

Summary

The following key lessons are taken from 365 Days to Let Go. Use their insights to find the peace of mind in just being yourself...

Whatever is true, right, and real in any human being need no more seek approval for its own nature than does an eagle in full flight hope to hear the "caw-caw" of some crow below it, calling out to it about how confident it looks soaring alone through the wide open sky!

***

Real freedom isn't subject to how others estimate our value; it is in realizing that none are free who find their sense of worth wondering how others measure their lives.

***

The reward of being true to ourselves becomes more and more apparent as we realize that most of the fears that stalk us are created by us when we are false to others, or to ourselves; too late we discover that to compromise our own integrity is the same as forsaking our wish to be fearless and free.

***

The true individual is one who doesn't need the approval of others in order to know the peace of mind he finds in being just himself.
