WHO ARE YOU LIVING FOR?

Most people seek to obtain some type of approval from others. Many times this approval is given by parents, family, friends, and co-workers. It feels good to get approval from those around you. However, your life should not be entirely based on the approval of others.  It is more important that you live a life that you are personally pleased with. This may mean disregarding the advice that others give you concerning your life. It really is a waste of time to try to please everybody. If all the energy and time that you have is put into looking good for others and buying what you think others would want you to have, you will end up very unhappy. At the end of the day, the kind of car that you drive, the kind of clothes that you wear, the kind of job that you have, is useless if obtained only for the approval of other people. With anything that you do in life, always make sure that you are going after what you want. People will expect a lot from you but many times they will be the last one to help you fulfill those expectations. It is better to learn sooner than later that you can't please everybody, even those who you want to please the most.
