You Are The Supreme Authority

Two days ago I stewed in my Doctor's lounge for my Annual Executive. I finished just about 6 of his magazines. He was late again. Fresh out of magazines (two read thrice already), I began reading all his plaques, diplomas, trophies and certificates. He owned many- in fact, he ran out of wall real estate for all that parchment. Then it hit me.

Folks these days heap a great deal of importance on certificates, accolades and testimonials. They seek validation and the best way to grab it is with parchment. That piece of paper signifies recognition bestowed. Bottomline: people crave external APPROVAL. I mused about that for a second.

Isn't it funny that skilled athletes feel mediocre when they haven't won any awards from sports organizations? Or that handsome men feel like croaking frogs when some women reject them. And how talented writers feel unappreciated without a Pulitzer? External Approval- it's one powerful creature. It takes people on rollercoaster highs. There's a flip side. Denied of approval, many plummet to depression. That's certainly not a good thing.
