I come across this a lot in my mentoring groups. "I want to be successful so my dad is proud" etc etc.
WARNING You are setting yourself up for disappointment and always feeling less than. If your dad is in ego he'll never be able to heap praise on you and tell you well done. This does NOT mean he doesn't love you or isn't proud of you.
It means he's in ego and is threatened by your success. Mum, dad, brother, sister, this stuff is super common and is all too often at the core of family drama and hurt.
Bottom line, if the person is in ego they simply can't compliment you because it threatens them and their identity.
Love them, praise them, be the example to them of vulnerability and love. Service not status. Be the change be the example others can model off.

Whatever you're going through, keep going. Don't give up on you.
For years I never thought I would find happiness or peace. I could not see a bright future. But I'm here today to say... It can change if you change. And it will change if you can take ownership and make the changes required in your life.
This image here means more than you could know; my 2 boys meeting Candy for the first time. If they got under her feet she just gently moved them like a mumma bear with a gentle touch. Animals saved me. Healed me. They teach me so much and fill my tank.
I'm blessed. Life can be hard but the struggle is the gift of you search inside yourself for the change.
I know it's hard, but if you do that work, life can be magical and magnificent. 3 years ago I didn't want to be in this world. Today I simply cannot believe the love I feel. Happy Monday. Thank you Fiona and Scarlett for letting me into your life and sharing your Candy with me. Means the world....
HE DID IT
Tiger woods has won the US Masters. I cannot explain how incredible this is.
After 4 back surgeries, knee injuries, tons of drama, challenges, today against the best players in the world at the biggest tournament in golf, he wins his 15th major tournament.
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IF YOU DON'T QUIT ON YOU.
The world wrote him off. The media hammered him that he was a hasbeen who needs to retire gracefully.
And today he wins his 5th Green Jacket. No words. When I saw an article by The Daily Mail Online I thought it was April fools or I was somehow half asleep imagining, because on Aussie tv he's only starting his round.
Then I realised it's NOT live in oz this morning. They started early because of bad weather coming this arvo.
This is a symbol to the world what's possible. Ignore the naysayers, sceptics, hate and focus on your dreams. You can.
I'm thrilled to be working with another incredible group of high quality people up on the central coast. What a team. Week one done and dusted, 3 to go.
Are you investing in you?
Making yourself better? When you grow so does your life. When you don't, you guessed it... You stay stuck.
We are always the problem and always the solution. Take ownership of where you're at and make the necessary changes to reach your fullest potential. These champions are doing just that. See you Tuesday guys xx
Happiness is not a destination. It is NOW. Sadly the success formula we've been taught is flawed.
You'll never be happy "when" if you're not happy now. It's a contradiction in terms and a deceptive trap.
Easy to think when I've got more money, time, I'll be happy but you never will.
So common in Weightloss and business. When I hit goal I'll be happy. No you won't. It's an inside job NOW. How long does it take? No time at all.
Important to check yourself and ask the tough questions. Detach from outcome. #inspiration #motivation#realestate #weightloss
There's not many people I would suggest following on the gram but this bloke is an exception.
Normally people who are the very best of the best are FULL OF EGO, STATUS, ENTITLEMENT.
This guy is the exception to the rule. Humble as they come. Australia's number 1 real estate agent but you'll never hear him talk about it nor will you see him rock up in the Ferrari. @matsteinwede you are pedigree class. It is an Honor to call you a friend.
Wanna be better and model of someone worth modeling. Follow Matt. Whatever industry you're in, check him out.
When it comes to integrity, leadership and how to live, they don't come any better than these 2 champions. Authentic, humble personified.
I got the opportunity to speak to their McGrath Estate Agents St George teams this morning. What a room.
Thanks for having me fellas. And it was wonderful to see some of my TJM team in the room. Zak, Julie, Roger among others.
Keep aiming high legends. Exciting times ahead.
P.s. What about that photo. I dead set look like Frodo.
Absolutely pumped to be working with these guys for the next 4 weeks in the McGrath Accelerator Program Central Coast.
Nothing energizes me more than meeting quality people and once again, this room is full of them. Exciting times.
Do what feels "light and right" and the rest will follow. If it's "hard and heavy" you're doing it wrong.
