The Importance of Inner Approval

The Importance of Inner Approval

We are innately gifted with what we need to be possible and for our dreams to come true, yet we have been programmed to seek outer approval rather than inner approval.

“Which One Are You?”

“Which One Are You?”

By Poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox There are just two kinds of people on earth today, Just two kinds of people, no more, I say. Not the rich and the poor, for to count a man’s wealth You must first know the state of his conscience and health. Not the humble and proud, for, in life’s…
