					Approval Addiction - Talk Yourself Out of It
It is time to put your approval addiction in the past and start looking
towards a brighter future. You were approved before you were born and it
is time you stop letting others take that away from you. Look at yourself
and I mean really take a close look. You're one magnificent creation and
you should marvel at this fact.
Can you find anyone else around the world that is your exact replica? I
think not; how about someone who has your smile - your exact taste or the
experiences that made you who you are today?
If you show gratitude for all the good and not celebrate the bad things
or those things you would love to change then you will have no problem
being self-reliant and you will be developing a healthy foundation of
self love.
It is the people who know what their value is or those that create a high
sense of self worth that become the people they want to be in life. You
don't need anyone to tell you that you're making the right decisions or
that you can't get something done. That is all up to you.
Hold in your mind the image of the person that you try to please most in
your life and ask yourself why you do this.
You may realize that they're lots of different reasons but finding that
out here and now will benefit you in the long run. The first step in
getting over it is to admit it to yourself and then determine the method
you will use to put this approval addiction behind you.
Approval addiction can be overcome by a simple step plan that includes
talking to your self. No I don't mean crazy talk like a raving madman
(who ever said talking to your self was crazy anyway - maybe you don't do
it because you want the approval of someone else) but positive self-talk
can change your outlook on the situation.
Thinking positive and speaking positive are great tools for putting this
habit behind you. If you constantly confirm to your self that you're
beautiful then you won't need anyone to tell you that now would you?
You will start to feel it and pretty soon you will start to live it. It
is a scientific fact that words have an effect on the human body. It can
be a cure or a curse and it all depends on what you say and how those
words make you feel.
If you constantly put yourself down and say I'm not lucky or I'm not
pretty or I'll never get that done then guess what - you have just spoke
it into your reality. Your actions from there on out will be geared
around what you have just said.
Are you getting the bigger picture? It is time to change your self-talk
and look at creating a new positive outlook on life. Try this for at
least 30 consecutive days and you will be amazed at the turn of events.
Also try to stay away from the people you try to please most and you will
realize that they will begin to miss the attention and they just might
start pleasing you. Just give it a little time and I guarantee it will be
worth it.
