Self Belief: Achievement vs Honesty

Instead of attaching my self-belief to achievement, attach it to being honest with yourself.

If I acknowledge yourself for who I am, then I won’t be upset.

Then I won’t lie to myself. Then I won’t be arrogant. You think you’re already good enough when you’re arrogant. If I’m not good enough then why be bitter?

You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end — which you can never afford to lose — with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.” - Jim Stockdale
