While this type of response from others is pleasant to hear, you may also want to make sure that you are basing your actions on your own determination to excel.
If you begin with the creation of a solid belief in yourself, you will develop the confidence and drive to continue your efforts and create beneficial outcomes for yourself. You may find it helpful to engage in a period of creative visualization and see yourself feeling proud and strong about your achievements and motivated to continue creating more success in your life.
A strong belief in ourselves gives us the motivation to be our best, regardless of the feedback we receive from others. While it is natural to desire approval and acceptance from others, we also need to develop a solid belief in ourselves in order to maximize our potential. By choosing to build ourselves up from within, we develop the strength and confidence that can sustain us in any endeavor. We are then willing and able to stretch beyond our limits and create lives that reflect who we truly are.
The feedback we receive from others will then be a nice complement to our already strong belief structure, rather than be the source of it. With a strong belief in yourself and your own abilities, you can enjoy the compliments you receive from others while owning your own confidence.
