Would you like to be free from the experience of getting criticized? Wouldn’t it be nice if no one accused you of being wrong or off-track? Here’s how you do this, says American writer Elbert Hubbard: “Do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.” I can’t recommend that behavior. In the weeks ahead, you have a sacred duty to your Future Self to risk being controversial. Take strong stands, speak raw truths and show real feelings. Yes, you may attract flack. You might disturb the peace, but that’s an acceptable price to pay for the rewards. It’s one time when being brave is more important than seeking harmony.
