When you are not attached to praise or criticism, an interesting freedom is yours.

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.

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

People have a way of becoming what you encourage them to be, not what you nag them to be.

Rejection is not fatal; it is merely someone’s opinion.

When you blame and criticize others, you are avoiding some truth about yourself.

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.

There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally.

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

The final proof of greatness lies in being able to endure criticism without resentment.

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

What other people think of me is none of my business.

When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

Criticism is something you can easily avoid by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.

When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Always be mindful of the kindness and not the faults of others.

He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away.

It is much more valuable to look for the strength in others. You can gain nothing by criticizing their imperfections.
