Jon Kabat-Zinn says “If you are truly strong there is little need to emphasize it to yourself or to others.”This applies to prowess or achievement in many areas of our lives. Sometimes we have to be able to do some self-promotion, but mostly we don’t. Unless you are deliberately trying to sell yourself – at a job interview or promoting a business for example – remember that less is more.

Kabat-Zinn finishes the paragraph by saying: “What looks like weakness is actually where your strength lies.” (p. 66)
