The FALSE BELIEF many people have that sabotages there best efforts to succeed is this one:
"In order to succeed financially (or in any other way), I need other people's approval of me or I need them to like me."
This FALSE BELIEF has causes many, many people to fail repeatedly. Yes you need approval and yes you need to be liked but it is not other people's approval you need, it is your own approval you need most of all. The more you like and approve of yourself, the easier it will be for you to achieve the success you want.
Unhappiness is an ALERT signal that you're living your life in accordance with a belief that may be true for another but is definitely not true for you. - Frederick Zappone, Thought Mastery
