”Great job!’ ‘You are a total rockstar!’ ‘Well done!’ Praise. Recognition.
Approval. It feels good, right?!?
And receiving positive reinforcement has been proven to increase motivation and performance more than receiving negative reinforcement.
Yet, even more detrimental than taking any critical feedback as Truth with a capital ‘T’, is taking positive recognition as Truth.
In this week’s video, we’ll explore the reasons as to why we crave praise, what makes it so dangerous, and how to break the cycle.
Remember, praise from yourself is FAR more powerful than any praise you all ever receive from anyone else…
If you truly want to get your brave on, you need to stop seeking external validation, and instead believe deep down you are good enough exactly as you are… right here, right now.
So this week I challenge you – no I DARE you – to take some time to go inward, and find some internal validation.
