Curious and Curiouser Podcast

Aug 22, 2018

Whose approval are you seeking?


On this week’s episode, Tracey and Cayly have a meandering conversation sparked by this question, exploring all the ways we seek approval and how we can learn to stop looking outside ourselves for validation.


They discuss why we continue to seek approval from our parents even as adults, how social media can exacerbate this need for external validation, how meditation and visualization can help us change these behaviors, and why it’s okay if you want to stay small (in business or otherwise).


This is a wide-reaching conversation and Tracey and Cayly hope you enjoy it!  If so, please consider leaving a 5-star rating or review in iTunes. It helps other folks find the podcast and is really appreciated.
