Flattery 

John 1:25,27 KJV [25] And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet? [27] He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to unloose. 
Listening to flattery will get you nowhere in life. Know who you are so you will not be buffeted by public opinion which will turn your unique life purpose into competition. “Flattery corrupts both the receiver and the giver” (Edmund Burke).
