Being liked by everyone in life is not only unnecessary, it’s impossible. One of the shortest paths to mediocrity is living a life bound by the constraints of other people’s expectations. You are not here to be what people expect you to be.
It is far more meaningful to receive a single acknowledgment for making a significant difference in one person’s life than it is to collect thousands of likes for something that will be forgotten in less than a minute.
At the end of your life, no one is going to care how many likes you got. And it’s highly likely that you won’t either.
One of the reasons life appears to pass more quickly as we age is because we become engrained in comfort. A lack of novelty in one’s life leads to time passing with little worth remembering.
If you want to slow down the rate at which your life appears to be passing you by, embrace new experiences, set new goals, and challenge yourself.

Don’t be deceived by a world that often implies that you can only be or do one thing in life.
Your true potential in life may lie in your unique combination of interests that will lead to an uncommon set of skills & knowledge that could ultimately result in you to doing or offering something that the world has never seen before.
Popularity seekers cherish perception.
Potency seekers cherish results.
