“Extraordinary people don’t care what others think of them. They do well in getting what they want because they are unencumbered by others’ opinions. However, most people have been conditioned to be affected by the opinions of others.
I am not advising you to become an amoral, self-centered person, but to recognize the difficulties that are involved for a naturally caring, sensitive person such as yourself, to pursue your own legitimate self-interest. There is something valuable to learn from these more detached people: their disregard for others’ opinions enables them to focus on the accomplishment of their objectives. This can only be done by achieving a clear understanding of yourself and your actions.”
Chin-Ning Chu, in “Thick Face, Black Heart”
