Be Kind To Yourself

Self-assessment is the process of looking at oneself in order to assess aspects that are important to one's identity. To carry out an effective self assessment, one's work related values and interests amongst others will be taken into account. Here are some inspiring quotes on personal assessment.

“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” – Steve Jobs


“With realisation of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.” – Dalai Lama


“View your life with kindsight. Stop beating yourself up about things from your past. Instead of slapping your forehead and asking, ‘What was I thinking,’ breathe and ask yourself the kinder question, ‘What was I learning?’” – Karen Salmansohn


“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.” – Benjamin Franklin


“Anyone who knows me, should learn to know me again; for I am like the Moon, you will see me with new face everyday.” – Rumi


“Attack the evil that is within yourself, rather than attacking the evil that is in others.” ― Confucius

 

“Judging oneself to be inferior to other people was one of the worst acts of pride because it was the most destructive way of being different.” ― Paulo Coelho

 

“We can’t improve what we don’t assess.” ― Michael Hyatt

 

“We cannot measure a person’s value to the human race by tabulating the size of his estate. We must judge each person by his or her final contribution to humanity and nature.” ― Kilroy J. Oldster

 

“The game isn't big enough unless it scares you a little. Cmdr. William Riker” ― Star Trek: The Next Generation Episode Guide Team

 

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.” ― August Wilson

 

"Judging others is too often escapism dressed in the garb of righteous indignation, whereby I dutifully point out in others that which I probably should be pointing out in myself." - Author: Craig D. Lounsbrough
