Sometimes we find ourselves spending time seeking approval from others, believe you me it is a waste of time. It is not everyone who will give their honest opinion. The desire to be successful should motivate you to make the right choices.
Can you relate to this?
Making choices to avoid criticism or disapproval rather than what is important and valuable to you? Hiding your true self? Holding back from voicing your opinion? Well, it is possible to change all that. Let go of seeking approval from others, be honest to yourself and be committed to your work, believe in your abilities, have a sense of self-acceptance and go for what makes you feel good about you.
We often loose on opportunities because we want approval, never seek validation from others. Listen to your inner voice and go for what you believe in, not everyone has your best interest at heart.
