Don’t let the desire to be accepted by other people drive your happiness. Not everyone will be happy for your success.
Many feel as though we’re all in a constant competition with each other and, if you’re doing well then that means they’re losing. That’s the biggest fallacy. We can ALL win, and I cheer for everyone who is putting in real WORK to get where they want to be.
But if you’re constantly searching for external validation then you’ll never truly be happy.
Focus on your goals, aim for daily improvement, and do what makes you happy.
Ignore the negativity, and don’t let someone dim your light because it’s shining in their eyes.
