As much as we thirst for approval we dread condemnation. —Hans Selye
On Today’s Episode:
- Carla and I talk about the constant need for approval
- The problem with false validation
- How social media can exacerbate the problem
- Ways to tell whether you are stuck in an approval-seeking pattern
Everyone needs approval from time to time; it is a very normal human behavior that provides feelings of security and love. But sometimes, we can get stuck in a cul-de-sac of a constant need for validation that can turn self-destructive quickly. On today’s podcast, Carla and I talk about how to recognize whether you are stuck in this cycle and, most importantly, how to get out of it.
In a few weeks, we will be doing a podcast filled with answering guest questions. Now is a great time to ask me anything that’s been on your mind: drop me a line, email me direct via firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me @ronkitchens.
Question: How can you help your team avoid getting stuck in the approval cycle?
