Most people care what other people think to some extent. However, if you are a “people pleaser” who needs external validation throughout the day it can be tough on the job and in relationships.
In order to find happiness and self confidence consider some ways that will help you accept yourself and find validation from within. Internal validation means you find answers with introspection. People who are internally validated know how to like themselves. They don’t need outside approval to feel happy. Super successful people do not worry what their critics have to say good or bad because they know how to find confidence and security inside not externally.
Consider these 7 reasons why you should stop caring what people think as a motivation to improve your life and boost your happiness:
1.You have to look in the mirror
One reason you should stop caring what people think about you is because no one else is your judge. Whether you are a business owner or entrepreneur, you define your ethics and values.
2. Other people don’t know you
It does not pay to care too much about other people’s opinions of you because no one truly knows you. Spend time every day getting to know yourself. Think about what matters most to you. Reflect on your history and how you have grown or evolved as a person.
3. Your creativity overflows
No one can hold you back when it comes to your imagination and creativity. Also, only you know what inspires you and what drives you.
4. You define success with your goals
Spend time writing down your goals so you are more aware of what you want in life and with your business. It doesn’t matter if someone else thinks you should go a certain direction with your work since you know the path you are on.
5. Other people have baggage
Other people project their issues on you because they are not as aware about who they are and where they have been. If you worry what others think, you are wasting time because they could be criticising you for something they regret.
6. You control your feelings
Contrary to popular belief, people can’t make you feel a certain way about yourself. You decide how to respond to what others say. Choose to turn a negative into a positive or an opportunity to learn or grow.
7. You can’t read minds
It is foolish to care what other people think because you don’t actually know what they believe. Many people lie or deceive others because they don’t know who they are. Without the ability to read into another person’s mind, you don’t really know what they believe. Once you know a person’s true motivations, you can make better decisions.
Only you can make you happy. Don’t count on the boss, family members or people on social media to validate how you feel about yourself and your work. You have to take steps to find validation from within if you want to be truly happy and successful.
