Fact: I’m extremely self critical. I judge myself harder than anyone else could ever even imagine. I don’t really give myself credit for anything. This trait has always left me in a state that leaves me falling deeper and deeper into the abyss because I continually beat myself up even over the little things.
Positive: I’m usually able to make corrective action relatively quickly when it comes to my professional life. In a work environment, I’m constantly aware of my short comings therefore I am able to come up with a plan to correct any issues that I have. In my professional life, this trait manifests itself in a positive light and in my personal life it manifests in a negative one. If I can see my personal life through the lens of my professional life, maybe I won’t be so hard on myself and then I could even learn to be more positive when it involves my personal affairs.
