“I can’t give you a surefire formula for success,
but I can give you formula for failure:
try to please everybody all the time.”
– Herbert Bayard Swope, American editor and journalist;
first recipient of the Pulitzer Prize
I believe that most of us are conditioned from a young age
to please others.
Our parents, teachers, sports coaches, friends etc.
As we develop into adults, these habits become unconscious
and we can lose touch with what we really want, often putting
our own needs way down the list of priorities.
Take a minute to think about this question:
Where might I be unconsciously holding myself back,
by trying to please people?
If everyone’s happy with you, that’s great for them.
But it’s most likely not great for your life or career.
No matter how good you think you are.
