The most debilitating addiction is not booze, drugs or sex. It’s the addiction to the approval of other people. The reality is that few people care about what we do, whom we marry or which profession we pursue. They’re busy enough worrying about their own problems to invest any meaningful amount of time judging ours.

One of the things that drives me nuts about personal development gurus; religious leaders, life coaches, psychologists and other advice-based experts is when they tell you how your should live your life. Its as if they possess information that you don’t; or that they are more intelligent in some way. I saw one the other day where some guy is conducting a course on how to me a real man. Seriously? The audacity of some of these people is only exceeded my the size of their own egos. Watch this short (2:47) video about living on your terms and being happy.
