Notion of yourself

Campbell: Ramakrishna once said that if all you think are your sins, then you are a sinner. And when I read that, I thought of my boyhood going to confession on Saturdays, meditating on all the little sins that I had committed during the week. Now I think one should go and say, “Bless me, Father, for I have been great, these are the good things I have done this week.” Identify your notion of yourself with the positive, rather than with negative.

Joseph W. Campbell, Bill Moyers in The Power of Myth

We could do even more. Every night, just before going to bed try to meditate about the positive aspects of the day. As easy as it seems, you may get a surprise.
