Sure. Most all of us seek validation. We want to tell our friends and family about out hopes, and dreams.
We want to share our goals. Some of us even love oversharing online. We’ll post most anything.
But is sharing all there is to know about our past, present, and especially our futures the highest and best idea?
Then it happens. We find that some of those people we entrusted with our hopes and dreams, our goals, our futures, aren’t ready to give us the kind of validation we thought they would. We thought we needed!
They are actually our foes. They don’t want us to realize our highest and our best selves. Instead of lifting us up, they make every effort to keep us down.
We have given them too much information.
I heard something the other day while watching one of my shows that really resonated with me.
Here’s hoping it’ll resonate with you as well.
“Always Keep Your Foes Confused. If They Don’t Know Who You Really Are Or What You Really Want, They Can’t Know What You Plan To Do Next.”
Talk about having an advantage. HELLO!!!
Personally, I’d rather show ’em than tell ’em anyways.
Admittedly, I talk a whole lot. However, I never say more than I need to, and above all, I’m careful who I say it to.
For me, what it boils down to is this…
Oversharing could leave me vulnerable, too transparent, and hardly validated at all.
So nay to doing it!
