Expressions in a passage about self-image

Posted by Sphinx on June 20, 2003

People who have confidence in their personal worth seem to be essential for success. They "catch job on the wing". Opposite to that, some people hold attractions for faliure and nothing seems to work out for them. For such persons, their problems usually have as origin a difficulty with self-acceptance. When they gain more confidence through other's help, often their troubles take care of themselves.
