Yes, in the end you please no one and will be respected by none. One thing for sure, no matter what we do, there will always be someone criticizing us. Just do what you feel in your heart to be right.
In his talk ‘Only You can make the Difference,’ he quoted Sigmund Freud (hope I got it right from the video), ” … all of us think that we are immortal and we’re going to live forever and we’re constantly putting things off for tomorrow.” Don’t we always feel that – there’s always tomorrow – especially so when we are procrastinating and putting things off? “I’ll just do it tomorrow,” we told ourselves.
The world does not owe you a living, you owe the world something. You owe it your time, energy and talent so that no one will be at war, in sickness and lonely again. In other words grow up, stop being a cry baby, get out of your dream world and develop a backbone not a wishbone.
