Episode 31, March 2023: Source of Approval

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you believed you needed the approval of someone else? I’m guessing you will probably answer yes to that question.

Almost all of us at one time or another looked to our parents or caregivers for encouragement or support or approval. After all, who doesn’t want to hear the “good boy” or “good girl” words of praise? When we hear those words, we know that we have ticked all the boxes or followed all the proper steps of some procedure, and we feel our hearts swell with pride when the approval comes.

And many of us grow up into adults who also have a need for this kind of approval from our friends, our spouses, our employers, and from society at large. But what does it really mean when we put ourselves into the space of needing approval like this?

(Please watch the video for more!)

The truth is that you are complete and perfect unto yourself. Consequently, you don’t need the approval of anyone outside of yourself—no matter what you might think about that. Perhaps now would be a good time to stop seeking external approval, because true approval can only come from within. The moment you realize and embrace this, you’ll find your life improving almost immediately.

Remember, you can seek out the approval of others if you want to, but I’d encourage you to consider that the only approval that really matters is the approval that comes from yourself. Don’t listen to your ego-mind anymore. Listen instead to the wise counsel of your soul—the true source of your approval.
