Its always about believing in yourself, do that and everything else will fall right in place. For a long time, I have been looking and searching for support and endorsement from others. “Hey, read this and tell me your opinion” or “Hey, what did you think of my last post”. Its great to have peoples feedback don't get me wrong, it's even better when those are you are friends because they love you and will give you real answers. But the thing is it should come from them, you shouldn't keep asking around for what do you think of me, what do you think of what I did. Those who love you will always find a way of showing what they feel about what you did. Waiting for peoples opinion to feel good about yourself is same as declaring to the world that you don't believe in your self.
If you really love what you do, If you really believe in what you do, then you don't need peoples approval for it, you don't need them to tell you how great you are. And you sure don't need then to ask them please enter my movie and tell me your opinion or read my book or share my post or repost my painting. When you believe in yourself you will produce great stuff, which will make people come to you without you even asking. Support is just like care, they should never be asked for.
If you’re a writer, declare yourself the best writer

What I love about this quote is how much few words can mean. If you believe you are something declare to the whole world that you are, claim it and live it. Don't allow others opinion to affect you in any way, Support is not for sale or begging. always find a way to block those who try to bring you down, never wait for someone support, it will come when its time. And always remember that while people opinion in you matters, it's your opinion in you that makes all the difference.
