Don't Let People Bring You Down

"No matter where you go in life, there's always gonna be the one person that wants to bring you down, so stay strong and face your problems, instead of running away." by J. Johnson

At any point in our lives when we are making progress, there will always be someone who doesn't want to see us proceed and accomplish success. When we are dealing with "haters" and naysayers it is best that we don't waste any energy stressing or getting mad over there opinions, because no matter what we do somebody will always have something negative to say about it. 

The only time that we should truly worry is when we don't hear anyone talking about us at all, this means that you don't have anything going on for people to try and be cynical about. Never run away from what you are doing because someone says that you can't do it, or that you shouldn't be doing it. You know in your heart what is right for you to be doing, so make sure you follow it. Never let anything or anybody stand in the way of you accomplishing your dreams!

Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
