Don’t try to please everyone

in

You need a 7 Day Brainwash“I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.” — Bill Cosby

Nothing is more harmful to your own growth and development than being a “people pleaser”. We all crave acceptance and approval from family, friends, co-workers, and so on. It is a natural human instinct.

Be sure to not allow your need for acceptance hold you back when it comes to your life and your dreams.

There may be new projects you want to embark on, a new career you want to start, an old friend you want to reconnect with. These kind of decisions will not always be looked upon as “positive” by the people in your life.

Ultimately you need to ask yourself, “Is this idea important to me? If I pursue this idea, will my life gain more meaning and happiness?”

If the answer is yes then you MUST act, despite any negative opinions or judgments from the people around you.

Use this day to focus on giving yourself approval and GO FOR WHAT YOU WANT.
