Get Out of Your Head

Presented by Spartan Training®

Disqualifying the positives occurs when you discount positive experiences and accomplishments but invite in the negative. It can occur anywhere and becomes problematic when you struggle to acknowledge achievement. We need to own and be proud of the things that we do well in order to build self confidence and a sense of pride. When we disqualify the positives we are not feeding our brains with the positive medicine that they deserve.

Self Confidence Lessons

  • Disqualifying the positives is a mindset trap that leaves you disowning positive accomplishments but attaching to negative experiences.
  • To build true self confidence, we need to own that which we have achieved, as this serves as important medicine for our self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • Try owning your achievements and patting yourself on the back when you have worked hard for something and created success.
