The Puppy Dog Syndrome

An overwhelming need to seek approval from others in validation or praise, often leading to cyclical disappointment, jealousy or rejection.

                                                               – p.o. martig

Sometimes having the right motivation but wrong delivery mechanism (always seeking approval from others) can cause helplessness and failure.  Try switching to approval from within first:

Do what you do because it helps you.  

Do what you do because it excites and motivates you.  

A job well done must first and foremost inspire you. 

Don’t expect gratitude or praise from others as your goal.

Success loves confidence; it is the puppy dog that will follow you!
