I often have friends tell me they didn’t do certain things for the fear of what people say. I respond by saying that is absolute foolishness. A quote that explains my thought process when saying this is
“Wolves don’t lose sleep over the opinion of sheep.”
What this quote is literally saying is that wolves don’t concern themselves with the opinion of sheep because they are indisputably superior to the sheep. Also, sheep most likely lose sleep over wolves which I think symbolizes the idea “if you got a problem with me, its your problem” which may same as arrogant and narrow minded but allow me to expand on this thought. The reason I think this way, is because I believe their are too many important things in the world and too little opportunities for happiness to drive yourself crazy over the thoughts of others. I am not saying not to listen to anyone’s criticism and live in a dream world, but rather listen to the important stuff and put anything that doesn’t out of your mind.

My partner in crime has made several posts about running, so I feel its appropriate that I add to the discussion. I began running when Amogha, my partner forced me to join the school’s cross country. Before, I actually gave in I made every excuse I could think of like I have no time, I am not fast, I don’t know anyone, or I don’t like running. The reason was for the fear of trying something new.

The mentality of people dictates the world and how far those people go to reach their goals. There are some people that after a few hardships and they quit and drop out of their task. Then there are others that follow and push on in whatever path that they are on until the day that they die. These are the types of people that achieve their goals and become the leaders of this world.
(Yes, this is Neil Pactrick Harris who plays Barney Stinson from the show How I Met You Mother, which is a great show, but the thing about his character is that he is always very, very persistent.)
I, personally feel that I have a medium high mental strength. When I pursue a goal I do almost everything in my power to reach that goal. I believe that I achieved this mental strength through running (I run competitively). Running in my opinion is one of the most challenging sports in the history of sports ( it was THE FIRST sport). I remember a few weeks ago I was participating in a 5K , and within the first half mile, I had the urge to drop out for my body was protesting against every step. Even through that, I muscled my way through and I attained a medal in the race and also helped my team place in the top three.
People with mental stability and power can go through a lot of pain still push through to meet their goals. sadly not everyone in the community is this way. We cannot push through like what others. Some people May maybe weak or they just have had too much to deal with in their lives at the moment. But, the people that push through are the ones that go above and beyond. These people feel a certain satisfaction from accomplishing (I know that I get a “kick” out of completing an assignment or race).
I know that Tejas (my partner), posted about how children have no limits to their imagination and that is certainly true, but only with age can we come to appreciate the goals that we want and be able to push ourselves to the objective.
