Beating Yourself Up

  • This self-inflicted form of harm serves no purpose.
  • Many people beat themselves up even before their work is not accepted or their suggestions haven’t even been given the time to be considered.
  • There is a better way to stop second guessing yourself – assume your work and thoughts are just as good as everyone else’s which, of course, they are.
  • Beating yourself up amounts to anticipation that your efforts could eventually be rejected – instead, own them and make no apologies (especially in advance).
