See the good in yourself because it’s useful.
If you make nine good decisions and one bad decision you’ll probably call yourself a bad decision maker. Because we like to dislike ourselves.
If you do this, you’ll make your belief come true, and make bad decisions because your picture of reality is wrong.
The more clearly we see reality the better our decisions are. And you are a part of your reality.
So if you see yourself as someone with poor judgment when you’re not, then you won’t trust yourself when it’s time to make a decision, second guess yourself and make the wrong one.
There’s a point where having a positive view of yourself has nothing to do with being nice to yourself or your self worth. It’s about getting the result you want. If you’re generally good at something, and you talk down to yourself about it, you’ll get bad results. You need to know who you are in order to move forward.
So don’t be proud of your accomplishments and skills because you’re worthy because most of us aren’t that healthy. Do it because it’s useful.
