When you don’t seek approval, you will always feel resilient when life gets tough. Making the journey rewarding makes you happy and mentally strong.
External circumstances will keep changing.
Most of us seek approval from society—it may be your income, social status, words of appreciation from your boss, or the quality of your lifestyle, but all such things change with time. They won’t always work in your favor. Therefore, it’s important to find the rewards in the work itself.
Make your journey rewarding by doing satisfying activities.
Whatever you do, find ways to make your work rewarding. For example, you can help your colleagues with work or join a professional development program to feel more competent. Even small things such as cleaning your office can be rewarding.
