I Need Your Approval?

There Are Two Sides To Every Clock
There Are Two Sides To Every Clock

While it would be nice to have everyone’s approval, acceptance and encouragement, it ain’t gonna happen.

When was the last time a United States President won every single vote, every single State?

When was the last time any elected official earned 100% approval.

Um, never.

Same here. I’m now nearly fully dressed with the necessary emotional battle armor required to follow audacious dreams, the same (but different) dreams you used to have, or maybe still do.

I hear my clock ticking louder and faster than ever. There is no turning back. There is no more worrying about approval or acceptance.

If there was, I’d be like the 97%.

  1. And if you tied your approval rating to the number of comments on your posts, your rating would be low.

    It took me a while to realize that I couldn’t measure the success of my own blog by the number of comments. If that was my motivation, then I was in it for the wrong reason.

  2. David, only someone who has a blog and read other “non-famous” blogs, can understand this.

    Don’t let comment traffic decide for you.

    I use GoDaddy’s site analytics for visit, unique visits, page views, and hits.

    Do you use these?
