    Thanks for dropping by. I feel you will be able to laugh at yourself only if you a strong sense of self esteem. It’s all about taking your work seriously and not yourself !

    However, if self deprecating humor is overdone, people will begin to believe that you are an idiot !

    I don’t know whether I’ve confused or clarified but here’s a quote worth pondering over !

    “A sense of imagination was given to man to comfort him for what he is not and a sense of humor, to console him for what he is !”

    I have heard Tony Robbins. He hardly does it, it at all he does, its very mid. I am a fan of his too 🙂
