the Discovery of Joy
There is no value-judgment more important to
man – no factor more decisive in his psycho-
logical development and motivation – than the
estimate he passes on himself.
~ Nathaniel Branden ~
Our success at friendship, business, sports, love – indeed,
at nearly every enterprise we attempt – is largely deter-
mined by our self-image. People who have a confidence in
their personal worth seem to be magnets for success and
happiness. Good things drop into their laps regularly, their
relationships are long lasting, their projects are usually car-
ried to completion, and they have a way of enjoying the
pleasures that the day brings. To use Blake’s phrase, they
“catch joy on the wing.”
On the other hand, some people seem to be magnets for
failure and unhappiness. Their plans go awry, they have a
way of torpedoing their own successes, and nothing seems
to work out for them.
