Talk Back To Your Inner Critic (2A/25). Part A.

Introduction:

This is the second of the "25 Ways To Improve Your Self Confidence (Drastically!)." It is rather long. So as not to bore anyone, I have chosen to break it into three (3) parts. Here we go with Part A.

The Enemy Within.

We are all self-made, but only the successful are bold enough to claim it. I know a lot of people don't like to hear that. They are so quick to claim the part they played in another person's success. How so vain? I don't see people being quick to lay claim to people's failures, just the success. Everyone wants to have a share of the shine. Yet, what is true for Paul is also true for Nancy.

If we are not self-made successes, then we are sure then not also self-made failures. Right? The truth really is we are all different, and the factors that determine the successes and failures in our lives are intrinsic to us, not external. It is not as much as what happens to us, or not. It is the way we perceive, interpret and react, or respond that differentiates between successes and failures.

This is what we mean by being self-made. It is not to disregard the external influences and assistance. It is to say they are all useless and subservient to an individual's choice. That is what Viktor Frankl teaches us in his book "Man's Search for Meaning." Viktor teaches, "Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."
