As a society, we have been conditioned to find the negative things about ourselves because focusing on the positive is typically viewed as arrogant, boastful, prideful, etc. How many of us, when we see ourselves in the mirror, are pleased with what we see? Are you able to look at yourself and see the positive attributes you possess, or do you strictly focus on the negative you perceive about yourself? Keeping this fault-finding mindset is poisonous to the success of our efforts. Too often our negativity about ourselves and our view of life limits us from operating fully with excellence in our specific purpose. Self-abasement, even in jest, is an indicator that a mindset shift must take place. When you tear yourself down or belittle your accomplishments and abilities, you are sabotaging yourself and limiting your potential. Embrace who you are, love yourself and believe that you are worthy of love, praise and success. It is time to turn the looking glass around in order to see our strengths rather than our faults.
