Getting the approbation of others is cool. But you should not build your motivation on that.
Your motivation should be built around a goal and a dream.
The approbation of others should be only a bonus when it comes.
As long as your dream is greater than your need for approbation, you won’t feel bad if people try to bring you down.
“If you care about people’s approbation, you will become their slave for life.”
– Abel Adamu Buba
Don’t become a slave for approbation.
When you ask for an advice, ask it for real. Don’t disguise your need for approbation when asking for advice.
“We ask advice, but we mean approbation.”
– Charles Caleb Colton
Smile and be happy when someone approve what you are doing. But don’t wait on that to keep going on with your creation.
Build on your dream, not on approbation.
