Seligman on self-improvement…

without comments

“The belief in self-improvement is a prophesy just as self-fulfilling as the old belief that character could not be changed…people who don’t believe change is possible will indeed remain incapable of change. A culture believing in self-improvement will support health-clubs, AA, and psychotherapy. A culture believing that bad action stems from bad character and is permanent won’t even try…What is remarkable is that much of this self-improving ideology is not clap-trap…The self-improving self actually improves itself. You can indeed lose weight, lower your cholesterol, be physically stronger and more attractive, less compulsively time-urgent and reflexively hostile, less pessimistic.”

Learned Optimism, Martin Seligman.
