Decision #6: How to Increase Your Self-Worth

Previously published as part of "The 6 Most Important Decisions You'll Ever Make"

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look your best, but if your self-confidence (or lack of it) comes from how you stack up on the good-looks gauge, you’ve got serious problems. When all is said and done, learning to like yourself is a choice, and it comes from within. Decision #6 covers important concepts, like:

-The one true mirror you should always look to
-Why fixating on other people’s opinions of you is stupid
-Character and competence: the foundation stones of healthy self-worth
-What to do when you’re depressed and can’t pull out of it
-Developing your unique talents and skills
-Mining your own fields for diamonds
