Building self confidence – reducing our need for approval
“Part of me suspects that I’m a loser, and the other part of me thinks I’m God Almighty.” John Lennon
In his article Would you like to stop worrying about what others think?, Morty Lefkoe explains some of the psychodynamics of low self regard, our need for approval, and how his program can eliminate “I’m not good enough” beliefs.
“If we don’t experience being good enough the way we are and we need something outside ourselves to become good enough, how often would we want that outside something to occur? All the time!
“As a result, the need to have others think well of us is experienced like a drug addiction by many people.”
