Question:
Why is Friday the thirteenth considered to be bad luck?
Answer:
The number thirteen represents Judas, the thirteenth to arrive at the Last Supper. Friday by itself is unlucky because it was the day of Christ’s Crucifixion. Years ago, the British set out to disprove these superstitions. They named a new vessel HMS Friday, laid her keel on a Friday, and then sent her to sea on a Friday that fell on the thirteenth. The plan backfired: neither ship nor crew was ever heard from again. Then, of course, there’s Apollo 13.

    How confident are you

    Defining your starting point.

    If you deliberately plan to be less than you are capable of being, then I warn you that you will be unhappy for the rest of your life. You'll be evading your own capabilities, your own possibilities. - Professor Abraham Maslow

    Your self-image – the way you see yourself – is made up of three core feelings and beliefs:

    1. Self-worth: the value you place on yourself – how comfortable you are being you and the extent to which you feel worthy of happiness and success.
    2. Competence: your beliefs about your capacity to achieve, solve problems and think for yourself. This is what I mean by confidence.
    3. Belonging: whether you feel accepted and respected by others.

    Your assessment of your self-worth and feelings of belonging make up your self-esteem.
