Why we should care less about the opinions of others

Confused on the career path

If there’s something you want to do, if there’s a career path you want to take, and you’re a bit confused because everyone’s telling you not to do it, or just something you want to change in your life, as long as you’re being kind, and as long as you’re not hurting anyone, it’s really … I mean, as long as you’re not being mean on purpose, I think it’s really important to do what you want to do, and not worry about what people think because they don’t actually care as much as we think they do.

Spreading positivity

And when I’m doing my cheffing, I do lots of cooking, and I do shows in America, and things like that. And then if I do positive quotes, you know, I want to spread positivity. I think we should all spread positivity and how there’s so much negativity out there that I like putting positivity on my social media. And then you get some numptie saying, “Why are you putting positivity, positive quotes, on your social media?” Where’s the cake? And I don’t really care what that person thinks because I’m trying to do a good thing.

Struggling is not an option

So my point is, if there’s something that you really want to do, but the only reason you’re not doing it is because you’re scared of what people think, or something you want to be, really consider that it’s important to be you because we’re here to be happy. We’re not here to struggle, and only survive. We’re here to thrive, we’re here to love, we’re here to give, and we’re here to enjoy ourselves, and at least find a job or a career that we love. And it takes time, it takes work to find that career, that partner, that we really bond with.

Listen to Steve jobs

So don’t settle. I love Steve Jobs, what he said about don’t settle in work or in relationships. Don’t settle, and please, if you’re going to worry about what people think, you’ll never get anywhere. Because if there’s 100 people in a room, each person is thinking a different thing. So if you’re worried about doing something, of all the people you know, everyone’s going to think something different.

Be authentic

It’s just important to do you. Be you. Be authentic. Find what makes your heart sing, and go for it. That’s what we’re here for, to be happy, and then when we’re happy, we can make other people happy too. Anyway, big love.

    Just want say, I used to watch your show when I was living in Australia. But I don’t care for you much anymore, just wish you would go back to the U.K.
