Quite often I give myself a hard time or not enough credit. I think it might be due to my background. Encouragement was not the usual education strategy when I was young. In contrast, my parents often used the neighbour’s kid as my role model. For example, he got better academic scores.
After I met my husband, I found the power of encouragement. It actually helps you to believe in yourself, feel better and improve yourself. And then, I realised the power of giving yourself credit.
Once you are comfortable about what you are doing, then you can do it well. The credit will build up and the positive circulation will start.
How much credit do you give to yourself?
