Start listening to yourself
This is one thing that needs to be done at the earliest. Start listening to yourself. Why? Because you don’t. You listen to your friends, your parents or even that random guy who said you are not worthy. Stop that. They are not in charge of your life and they for sure cannot how to dictate your life. And there is no way you can stop them from saying. You can stop listening to them though and start listening to yourself more often. Because only you can tell what you want from your life. Develop a clear image of what you want and your job is already half done. Once you know where to go, all you have to do is steer your life.
