The ego loves to notice what’s wrong with people, places or things and pronounce its observation to anybody who’ll listen. It makes you feel insightful and smart enough (momentarily) to notice what isn’t as good as it could be. But this fleeting satisfaction is nothing compared to the damage it does. Since your subconscious mind doesn’t distinguish you from others, it takes the criticism personally. Rather than developing the destructive habit of focusing your attention on what’s wrong, you could just as easily use your discernment to enhance your self-esteem by

Looking for what’s right.
