Feeling satisfied with yourself includes feeling proud of yourself, and you cannot feel proud of yourself if the headquarters from which you take orders isn’t found within your own mind.
If you spend a lot of time looking for the approval of others, to feel proud about what you’ve accomplished, there is one thing that you will be living without – the true feeling of self-satisfaction.
To truly feel satisfied with who you are and what your life’s about, you don’t change your mind every time someone disagrees or shouts. Never seek to alter what feels right, if the feeling comes from your personal insight.
To be real is to be the captain of your soul, for it’s at that level of consciousness that you feel complete and whole. Make that your goal, and surely you’ll feel satisfied and proud when you share your opinions and thoughts aloud.
