In this episode, we dive into the concept of external validation and the power of inner approval.  I introduce the Contrarians Playbook, a new series exploring mindsets that non-resilient individuals often focus on.

Through the story of Fulvia, a marketing manager seeking validation from others, we learn the importance of prioritizing inner approval. Fulvia's journey leads to increased authenticity, self-assurance, and resilience in her professional life. We discuss the impact of seeking validation from within and navigating career complexities.

 The episode emphasizes the significance of internal validation and its role in fostering resilience. By decoupling self-assurance from external praise, Fulvia confronts challenges with confidence and supports others without compromising her well-being. Listeners are encouraged to find their own locus of control and balance external feedback with internal worth.

This episode offers valuable insights and lessons for creating more resilient perspectives. Don't forget to check out the Contrarian Handbook for further exploration. Thanks for listening, and please share the podcast to help spread the messages of resilience and well-being. Take care until next week's episode.
