Because one believes in oneself; one doesn't try to convince others.

Because one is content with oneself; one doesn't need others approval.

Because one accepts oneself; the whole world accepts him.

- Lao Tzu

    Believe in yourself. Not in the you who believes in me. Not the me who believes in you. Believe in the you who believes in yourself.

    shouldn't that last line read because one accepts himself, one doesn't need the acceptance of the world? Pretty good quote tho

    @M1sf3t Nah that would be redundant to the second one, and wouldn't deliver a point.

    @Fast-Nop true, just seems a little off. Confident individuals always seem to be at odds with those that are less so. Or at least the less confident are at odds them anyway.

    Of course they say you can always measure your success by the amount of haters you acquire, so if you consider that to be a form of validation then I guess that is in a sense acceptance that the person has at least achieved something, if only a subconscious one.

    These are good words, unfortunately unpractical in the real world. It doesn't matter how good you are, only matters how good you are perceived to be. Whether it's your boss or your clients, you're dependent on their appreciation to make a living.

    I would guess that in the long run, if you're incompetent then people will figure that out at some point; but If you're competent, you have to make sure that the people you're working with/for perceive that.
