“We are our harshest critic”
Bet you’ve heard that before, and for many it’s true.
To grow as a person requires discipline and coming from an ex-military guy, many would think ‘oh he’s all over that’. It couldn’t be further from the truth, just ask Kirsty 🙂 Matter of fact many people transitioning from a rigidly routined environment into something far more flexible like self employment struggle with self discipline because they’ve operated for so long in an ‘imposed discipline’ environment.
Personal growth requires self awareness or reflection. Initially people can get caught in self flagellation leading to a decrease in self esteem and confidence. This is because of the harshness they use in the judgement of themselves.
