It is interesting to listen to the self talk of super athletes. I once read an article in which one of the greatest female tennis players of all time reviewed a game that she had lost. Every statement she made about her self was still positive. People who succeed speak well of them selves to themselves. Nowhere in the gospel does JESUS put himself down. Jesus was full of self knowledge and self love. This is the beginning of Self-Mastery.
