Ignoring like The Vultures
Updated: Nov 14, 2020
The vultures are an important part of the food chain but the most important lesson we can learn from them is how to own your work.
In our world there are many who relate a person’s job to their character or personality irrespective of how the person actually is. This paves way for unnecessary judgement and people start to lose their self-esteem and begin doubting themselves. This is where the Vultures can help us to get our self-esteem back.
These scavengers are infamous for feeding on the dead carcasses of animals. They are put in a different category of birds separating them from the “beautiful colorful" birds whom everyone adores so much. Vultures are considered inferior and dirty by many too because of their diet. But did the Vultures change their diet because we humans think about them differently? No, they understand our thoughts don’t matter and they don’t care about us at all.
This is the mentality to adopt in life when people make you doubt yourself or your ideas. The only people you should care and worry about is you and the ones who care for you. Ignoring the naysayers will save you from wasting your energy and time which you can utilize in learning new skills or spending time with your loved ones.
The Vultures are not eating the carcasses out of choice but they are made to eat them. Nature has made such an efficient system and provided animals only what they require to survive. So these birds have more stronger acids in their stomachs than us humans which kills the bacteria which develops on the carcasses. If any other animal tried to eat such carcasses they would definitely get ill. This makes them a very important part of the Food chain, cleaning the final lap of physical life.
Ignoring the people who make you doubt yourself is very important because the more time you give to answering them, the more you lose time to work on your goals and personal development. If you ever face any such person just try to quiet as long as possible and let them talk whatever they want. As Ruskin Bond once said “ Avoid long speeches. The less a man knows, the longer he takes to tell it.”
Remember protecting your time from the naysayers will benefit you in the long term because Time is the most expensive possession we have because we are losing it everyday. So believe in yourself and Ignore the naysayers like the Vultures do. Focus on your aims and goals and keep growing!
