Worried About What Others Think, Here’s a Lesson for You
By: Starr Baca
I believe there is a lesson that can be learned from this sad event.

William Henry Harrison, our ninth President. I was once asked to name something significant about his presidency. Completely blank and not having a clue there was nothing.

Well, this was the answer my boss delivered to me. First giving me some background on William, apparently he was once told he wasn’t a very good speaker and had become very self-conscious about the matter. So when elected, he thought he would show them all. At his inauguration in 1841, he figured he’d show the world his great speaking skills by delivering a two hour speech in the freezing cold.

But before he had been in office a month, he caught a cold that developed into pneumonia. On April 4, 1841, he died—the first President to die in office.

Now our lesson: sometimes it really isn’t worth worrying about what others think of you. Granted this was a unique event that will most likely never happen to any of us, but think about it. Don’t spend your whole life worrying about what everyone is thinking or how they are thinking of you.

Worry about what you think of you, for you will be your hardest judge ever.
