I think that most of us become self- critical as soon as we become self-conscious. —Ellen Goodman—

It seems all to common that we reject our own best efforts as not good enough. Few of us are satisfied with anything less than perfection in ourselves or others. Criticism is second nature to us, and it does an injustice to both the giver and the receiver.
The self-image of all humanity could stand a face lift. Negativity has gained a strong foothold in our minds, and it digs its talons ever deeper with every barb given or received. Fortunately, we have an individual and collective power to change our thoughts and the direction we heading, as individuals and in concert with others. Being positive towards ourselves and others wields great power. Positive strokes encourage greater efforts which guarantee positive results.
I can be self-critical or self-congratulating today. My choice will determine the day’s success.
