Are You a Sheep in People Clothing?

Many people, who feel that they are independent and communicate well, are actually sheep in disguise. Are you one of them, how do you tell and how do you go about changing if you are?

When you are able to confidently stand on your own two feet, you become in control of your own life. You make decisions based on what is right for you or based on dreams and desires. When you are unable to do this, you start looking around for answers and can easily be lead astray.

People who are being sheep don't stop to find out for themselves what the facts really are. They look to other people for answers and understanding. They want so much to fit in that they deny to themselves who they really are and the divine gifts they have with in.

They are content to be, follow and become what everyone else is doing. They start to think, act, perform like the others and even believe that they like what the others like without question. They don't stop to find out what they like, desire or what their talents are.

Sadly, they can easily be lead into a mob mentality and create death, destruction and pain on incident people while following someone else's agenda.

It is important to ask your self:
It what the other person saying true
Could he just be an antagonist with a hidden adgenda
Are these people riding on fear or being irrational
Is what they are saying even logical
Have I checked the facts
Are they looking to blame someone for their own stuff.

Sometimes the other person may be trying to get you to follow there styles, beliefs or philosophies;

Ask yourself:
Is this true for me
Is it in alignment with my own value systems
Would I be comfortable doing this.
Do I feel pressured by this

When we ask ourselves the deeper questions, and take the time to look for answers, we remain true to ourselves. We then feel more confident and not worry about regrets later on.

Dr. William James knew the importance of people thinking for themselves. When he taught his classes, he encouraged his students to read the works of people that thought differently than he did. That way they could understand deciding things for themselves as apposed to being lead through their education and throughout their lives.

This is one of the best reasons that I know to improve your perceptions and communicate confidently your own truth and understanding. If you don't feel confident, work on changing it. Take classes, read books. Remember to invest in your independence and confidence to make the right decisions. And not get trapped in following someone else's hidden agenda.

I love how this quote sums it up.

"I once complained to my father that I didn't seem to be able to do things the same way other people did. Dad's advice? 'Margo, don't be a sheep. People hate sheep. They eat sheep'." ? Margo Kaufman

All the Best!
