Can Being Pretentious Be Good?

No one likes to hear a cocky self assured, pretentious person boasting of his abilities, that you doubt are possible. But what is equally disturbing is hearing someone being beyond modest to the point of being self deprecating, where you see he has all the abilities, but yet doesn’t believe in himself enough to use them. So as in most cases the answer is not with either extreme. Hiding behind the face of being modest, or being afraid to let ourselves shine, shortchange ourselves. 

We must go beyond our humility even it seems as if we are being a little pretentious. We must be assured, and confidant, and positive. WE must declare and believe in ourselves and our abilities. As Henry Ford once said There is no man living that can not do more than he thinks he can.  

Todays mantra should be something like this…

I am blessed and I will continue to live a good, happy, healthy life.  It will be blessed beyond what I can even imagine, and good things will continue to happen for my benefit, and the benefit of my family. I will let myself shine!

Just a thought…
