You will never gain anyone’s approval by begging for it. When you stand confident in your own worth, respect follows.

Happiness means loving yourself and being less concerned with the approval of others.

Stop worrying about pleasing others so much. Do more of what makes you happy.

When you do not seek or need approval, you are at your most powerful.

One of the most freeing things we learn in life is that we don’t have to like everyone, everyone doesn’t have to like us, and it’s perfectly OK.

Happiness is when you feel good about yourself without the need for anyone else’s approval.

Life is too short to waste time waiting for other people’s approval on how you live it.

If you find yourself constantly trying to prove your worth to someone, you have already forgotten your value.

What you think of yourself is much more important than what other people think of you.

Live your life for you not for anyone else. Don’t let the fear of being judged, rejected or disliked stop you from being yourself.

If you persistently seek validation from others, you will inadvertently invalidate your own self-worth.

It’s not your job to like me…it’s mine.

I don’t have time to worry about who doesn’t like me. I’m too busy loving the people who love me.

If your number one goal is to make sure that everyone likes and approves of you, then you risk sacrificing your uniqueness, and, therefore, your excellence.

Happiness is really a deep harmonious inner satisfaction and approval.

Lean too much on other people’s approval and it becomes a bed of thorns.

Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your best.

A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.
