When we consistently suppress and distrust our intuitive knowingness, looking instead for authority, validation, and approval from others, we give our personal power away.
When we are looking for validation, that will never satisfy us. When we are looking for affection, for love, a little bit of that will be enough to be complete.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
To be in 'Vogue' has to mean something. It's an endorsement. It's a validation.
I don't need validation, recognition or praise. What I need are facts and the facts are that one of my books gets sold, somewhere in the world, every second.
The logic of validation allows us to move between the two limits of dogmatism and skepticism.
