"A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval." ~ Mark Twain
Don't wait for people's approval before you take action.
The magic trick is to find your way into a position in life where the approval of others doesn't matter... Not easy in the corporate world. Possible, yes!
There will be toxic & jealous "friends" who will drag you down when you are trying to hustle & make it rich. Ignore them, their opinions don't pay your bills nor take care of your family. Do what's necessary for you - become wealthy & make your family financially free.
“Respect yourself and others will respect you.” ― Confucius
Seek the approval of yourself and the respect of others will follow. Be good for people with truth and authenticity, not blind approval seeking. This is done with empathy, understanding and compassion.
Be Independent, Be Bold...Because when it really comes down to it, The only person's acceptance you need is your own!
Focus on how your actions align with your own vision and see how easy life becomes
