When You Screw Up, Affirm Your Self-Worth

When You Screw Up, Affirm Your Self-Worth | FAS Speakers | Scoop.it

by Sian Beilock, PhD, Psychology Today

 

Failure is a part of life—at work, at school, and even in our relationships. In short, we screw up all the time. Fortunately, new research shows how we can learn from our mistakes. As it happens, preserving our self-worth helps our brains make sense of our blunders so we can do better the next time around. Self-affirmation helps us improve the next time around.
