A king does not seek approval from other people. Let everyone else go around kiss ass and brown nose til their hearts content. That is not the path for you. Many people seem to revolve their lives around getting cool points from people that don’t matter or pay your bills. The older I get the more I realize the vast majority of people haven’t grown past this stage. This behavior is alive and well in the form of office politics. Seeking approval always put you in the inferior position because you are at the mercy of some idiot. The only approval you need is that of yourself. You only need to prove to yourself that you are who you say you are. No one else matters. Just you and your God given rule to over the internal universe that is your soul. Cool aint it?
