See yourself clearly

Be strong enough to question yourself. Be honest enough to answer.

Be humble enough to see that you’re wrong. Be confident enough to know when you’re right.

There’s one person in your life you cannot escape. That person is you, and it’s a good idea to see yourself clearly.

Treat yourself with respect and also with a healthy skepticism. Just because you’re you doesn’t make you infallible.

But it doesn’t make you mistaken all the time either. Give yourself the benefit of a sober and balanced opinion of yourself.

You don’t have all the answers, but you do have some. And that’s enough to keep you growing, learning, and moving forward through the extraordinary life you have.

— Ralph Marston
