You may be on the right track but you may not be towards the right destination.
How do you know what you are doing is right or wrong?
What is it that hints you to change?
Which successful person in this world who has not been subject to criticism?
Everyone has. Criticism in not what is wrong nor is being wrongly crticised. What is wrong is that one not taking efforts to find out why one is being crticised and making peace with it
You may not be always right, nor you may be wrong always. But then you have to decide between wanting to be happy being wrong AND wanting to be unhappy being right.
Mind you the right and wrong here are just the perceptions and not the actual deeds. Do the right deeds, but the perceptions others may have may be of wrong ones.
They say find the right path towards success. What I have seen in past few months tells me there is nothing like right path. You make your own path, and walk on it. And if you can, take along others too, of course with an intention to share it.
Biggest obstacle in accepting yourself : YOU
You have to let go of the stickiness of external perceptions, logic, measurement base. You may want to change, but you yourself set limits and rules for yourself.
There will be consequences.
Face them. Thats what you are supposed to do.
If being happy means, paying a one time or recurring cost in terms of money, or association, or friends, or luxury… then do it.
Biggest challenge in life is not making money, or rising to success.
Biggest challenge in life is Accepting yourself.
