If you are not happy with the kind of results you have in your life right now. You should think about where you get your validations. Who is it that validates your efforts and results? Where are you looking for validation? Your current situation is a reflection of your current capacity and productivity. If you are not fundamentally satisfied with it, it means there is still work to be done. The problem is that you are not being properly evaluated for your work. This could be because you evaluate your own work. Or you’re seeking validation in the wrong places.
Apostle Paul warns in Romans 12:3 (ESV), “For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.” There is the danger of forming an opinion of oneself that does not correspond to reality. Overstating your capabilities and attempting to operate at a level for which you are not trained or equipped. This is why we should ask trusted outsiders to examine and evaluate our work.
It is difficult to perform a task and evaluate the results on your own. Get used to receiving high-quality feedback on your mission. Remember: it is better for a person to hear the rebuke of the wise than to hear the song of fools (Ecclesiastes 7:5). Here’s something you must do. Look for two to three people that know you in destiny. People with sound judgment and the ability to evaluate your situation objectively. Ask them if there is anything they would love to tell you but believe you aren’t ready to hear. Allow them to express themselves freely and without interruption. You will learn a lot.
