The Trap of External Validation

When we need to make a big life decision we often look for external sources to validate our thinking. We often know the right decision but we still seek out others before we act. We call, we text, we even google or scroll Facebook to see if anyone there are any “signs” out there.

The truth is, this need for external validation is just another excuse we use to stop us from moving forward. We are afraid to make the leap and step outside of our comfort zone. We look for any logical and sometimes illogical reason to avoid any uncomfortable situations.

Don’t allow the opinion of others to impact your future, it’s YOUR future. Trust yourself and forge ahead.
