Food For Thought: You Create Yourself

In quantum physics, the law of the “observer effect” means that the act of observing will influence the phenomenon being observed. For example, for us to “see” an electron, a photon must first interact with it, and this interaction will change the path of that electron.
People will call you many things in this lifetime. They’ll try to fit you into boxes they’ve constructed in their heads that reflect their own limitations – not yours. But you create yourself. You are exactly what you say and believe you are. Let them tell you what you are (or what you’re not), because the only thing that matters is what you acknowledge. You have to fake it till you make it. Act like the important, valuable person that you are and only answer to those that address you as such.
Be selective. Don’t attend every argument you’re invited to. Don’t attend any arguments for that matter. When you observe the negative you give attention to it, changing your path by hindering your progress. If someone addresses you as something that your HIGHEST SELF does not identify with, carry on. When you believe you are (and the exude the attitude of) a successful CEO – whether that’s the CEO of your own small business, your family, or your dream project – you will become that. Respect yourself to the point where others have no choice but to respect you. You are ALWAYS in control.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
