110: The obsession with external validation

Why you should listen to this episode: if you’re the type of person who is continuously looking and asking for external validation. If you’re thinking about what others think about you, seeking their approval, forever comparing and just feeling stuck. Listen, get un-stuck, realise that the only approval that truly matters is your own.

Don’t worry, we’ve been there PLUS we still go back. We share our personal experiences and just have a general chat. The obsession with external validation is not only freaking annoying… it’s holding us back. Holding us back from our true potential, from the magic of living our truth.

Other stuff we talk about:

  • Social media and the comparison game. 
  • Instant gratification.
  • The reason why you don’t get our own approval is that you’re too busy criticizing ourselves (yeh, think about that! Minds blown. Ahhh!).
  • How to seek your own personal approval before you go out and seek others approval.
  • How the approval of others’ will never lead to fulfillment and contentment.

“You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.” ~Louise L. Hay
