The glory of kings

If you live your life based on what other people have said about you, you’d be living a lie. As Les Brown once said: “Other people’s opinion of you doesn’t have to be your reality.”

A lot of what’s real about you is on the inside, lying dormant, like your capacity to love, trust, believe, forgive and lead. But you have got to be willing to go deep within to unleash these potentials.

Besides, if you only let the external define how you react in this world, the media, school and the opinions of others, that’s choosing to be a slave. But if you, from the inner recesses of your being, choose to meet the external with your internal awesomeness and by this, I mean, your kind, loving, forgiving and perceptive self, you would have attained something I call the glory of kings.
