In the words of iamrennyren…you are what you think you are. If you think your great you become great. If you focus on what it takes to become great, you speed up the process of achieving your goal. If you worry about what others are doing your taking away from your own personal growth. It’s an old saying, “If you mind your own you’ll tend to live long,” success comes when you’re not focused on others.
Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before. Then people who are not Christians respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others…1Thessalonians 4:11-12
