Approbation

approbation

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.

About Serge ‘Mage’ Cote Why do I write? I believe in the butterfly effect. As small my influence may be on the planet, it is still influence. I want to orient it for better. I write my book with the idea of bringing something good into this world. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke I want my books to be a good place to be. A place that you visit often and feel good about it. I want my books to bring good energy, so the readers will take action to make this world a better place. I want my books to guide those who don’t know why they feel so bad about their life. I want my books to be there after I’ll be gone. I want people to come back to them and use them in a positive way. “The greatest use of a life is to spend it on something that will outlast it.” – William James

One thought on “Approbation”

  1. This is very true. In fact, we receive approval from others when we stop looking for it ~ when we don’t ‘need’ it. There are many such instances. I believe it’s all about having our own approval. When we have that, there is no need to look for it! I guess this has to do with being ‘authentic’. 🙂
