Small, Medium, Large

Eleanor Roosevelt once said “Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people.”

So true. It’s important not only to focus on thinking about ideas larger than oneself, but also to understand that it’s usually a waste of time to worry too much about what anyone thinks of you.

The people who are gossiping about you or others are rarely ever the ones who make a big difference in life. So don’t focus on gossip and hearsay. Focus on yourself, on pursuing your interests, and on making something of yourself. Don’t let small minds drag you down. Most of the time, your detractors are people who couldn’t do what you’re doing and are simply jealous. It’s much easier to criticize than it is to innovate.
