Believe it or not, how you judge yourself is more important than how you are judged by other people because you create your self- confidence through that judgement. If you spend your life telling yourself what you cannot do, your subsoncsious will make sure you can’t do any of those things. If, on the other hand you spend your life telling yourself you can accomplish anything, you will accomplish every goal you set for yourself because you have that self belief built into your psyche.
This is a great example of how it works: The person who says they can’t give up smoking will always be a smoker because they have defined themselves as a smoker. The smoker who is determined not to be a smoker will give them up because they have defined themselves as a non-smoker.
Rember, “you’re only limited by your own beliefs. What you believe you can accomplish; will be accomplished.”
