The face we see every morning in the mirror can have a lot to do with our actions. How we perceive ourselves can greatly influence what we do. People with good self-worth/esteem have the courage to take risks and turn failures into learning opportunities. People with a poor self-image will not take risks and each failure seems to confirm what they believe about themselves: they are no good. The real issues at work go far deeper than just positive thinking or self-perception. There are kernels of lies dropped into our internal programming at the the deepest levels of who we believe we are. Learning how to access these lies and replacing them with truth can be the beginning of turning negative cycles of behavior into positive growing experiences and truly experience the meaning of, "and the truth will set you free."
