Which is more helpful for your willpower and wellbeing, self-compassion or self criticism? Which do we tend to do? Most of us carry with us a small degree (maybe a large degree) of self-hatred. We tend to hate ourselves because we’re not progressing or achieving goals as quickly as our ego would like. 

Turns out, self-hatred and self-criticism actually diminishes our willpower, and our ability to progress and achieve our goals. And, they make our learning journey feel terrible.
