Borrowing the title of Richard Carlson’s book, “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff – Its All Small Stuff”, there are small-minded people who try to control your experience based on their own fears and need to feel superior over you. The small stuff and the small people may not feel like they are so small when you are in the midst of the storm, but the truth is everything is small when you fully humble your ego and stand in the truth and GREATNESS of your POWER.
No one knows what dreams and inspirations live inside of you. You may be going through a momentary set-back, but it does not mean you are down and out. Unfortunately, many only see the issues you are facing and nothing more. Small minded people come in many forms from both sides of success, but they still cannot expand their own minds to appreciate the challenges that you face that are truly fine tuning you into the champion that you are when they feel threatened. However, if you focus on the small stuff and the small people you will never be focused and aligned with your dreams.
There are very few people who see your passion and fire for what you dream to do with your L.I.F.E. They can only filter through their own fears and need to control because they are in a horse race with you to get to the finish line before you. They may not even know that the reason they feel the need to tell you what you need to do is from their own fears and need to control outcomes. Regardless of their issues you have better things to do than to sit and argue or contemplate their problems or reasons for their advice. Your goal is to stay focused on your own direction.
The greatest challenges are all small stuff, from the people who don’t support your dreams or believe or respect you when you are in your lowest state, to the wildest and most unimaginable physical mishap and loss of property and careers. It literally is still all small stuff because you have a POWER within you that is GREATER than all that you are currently experiencing and there to guide you into the realization and manifestation of your own truth. YOUR DREAMS!!!
It does not matter what others or saying about you or to you. It does not matter what is going on around you or what you are going through. It is all small stuff because you are GREATER than what you are experiencing! You have the POWER of God living within you! Through your humble notation of the erroneous advice or malicious intent of small-minded people, you have all you need within you to accomplish and achieve your most unimaginable dreams.
God is so BIG! God wants to show off through you! God cannot show off through you when you are stuck in the issues of L.I.F.E. and other people’s’ small-minded and petty levels of control they want to wave over you. God can only show off through you when you settle down and realize that the actual POWER of God is living fully PRESENT within you and prepared to move on your behalf to take you into an adventure that can only be limited by your own mind.
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, or the Small People, because it is all Small Stuff as Richard Carlson states. It is all beneath you because you have a greater plan for your own L.I.F.E. than anyone can ever know. They will see it manifest as you continue to walk your walk and silence your talk. Yes! Silence your talk. Why? Because the small-minded people will never understand what you are talking about anyway. They are to busy giving you their advice on how you should be living your L.I.F.E. and only concerned about their own needs to feel superior or better than you when you are going through. Love them and leave them right where they are, because you have GREATER things to do than to be stopped dead cold in their small vision for YOUR L.I.F.E.
No one can see what you see for your L.I.F.E., especially when you have given up so much to achieve the dream you see. They will see you as crazy, and dependent and many other things, but they will never see you as what you see yourself being, because they are only looking at the present state that you are growing through. Let it go and shake the dust off your feet. Stop sweating the small stuff and trying to make everyone happy or stressing over things that happen that seem to set you back.
You are never set-back, just thrown off the wrong course you were going and put back on track. Remember, Spirit is leading you and guiding you into experiencing your highest and greatest good. You will get there in your own timing. Stay humble, stay focused, stay loving and hopeful and don’t sweat the small stuff and the small minded people. You are GREATNESS EVOLVING!!! KNOW IT!
