Beware of labeling yourself

People mercilessly label themselves as “failure,” “loser,” “weakling,” and so on. When we identify with one of these negative labels it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Whenever, for example, you label yourself a “failure” or “loser,” you tend to embrace this as if it’s a life sentence. It’s not!

Your current “self-snapshot” doesn’t determine your future—unless, of course, you’re determined to allow insecurity to call the shots. Begin by taking an active responsibility for how you think about yourself. And for pity sake, lose the negative labels! It really is a choice.
