The way we express ourselves impacts our entire life experience. Our choice of words affects how others feel about us and, more importantly, sends a message to our own subconscious mind, which takes those words at face value. Criticizing or berating ourselves not only negatively impacts our self-confidence, it creates a fear of making mistakes. This deters us from taking chances and growing. It’s far better to acknowledge our human fallibility and, without feeling ashamed, accept imperfection as a necessary part of

Growing and evolving.
