How do you ‘rate’ yourself? Are you too easy on yourself or too harsh? We lie to ourselves more than we do to the world, and at the same time many people ‘beat themselves up’ over things all the time.
I have said many times over the years, “We measure others by their actions, but we measure ourselves by our intentions.” In all probability I heard that somewhere, I honestly don’t know. But whether the idea originated in my mind or that of another, life experience has proven it to be true.
We really should take a lesson from this Dennis Prager video teaching.
Mr. Prager offers a number of 5 minute ‘classes’ online at Prager University.
