Here's a suggestion for the
inevitable hamburger to give it
a new lift.
1/2 pound ground round steak
1 tablespoon moist bread
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dash pepper

Combine meat, bread crumbs,

Spread each side with mustard.
Dip in dry bread crumbs. Sear
on both sides under broiler,
turn heat low, and cook 5 min-
utes longer on each side.

Everyone Needs
Self Confidence
(Courtesy ''SHE'')

''How can I gain self-confi
dence?'' Day in and day out
hundreds of people ask psy-
chiatrists this question.

What these people are asking
is, ''How can I learn to have
faith in myself and the things
I do, to meet people and life
with self-assurance and trust?''
And what they want most

earnestly to know is, ''Can it
be done?''

''Yes,'' says psychiatry. By
learning to see themselves
realistically, the unconfident
can turn the trick of believing
in themselves. Seeing yourself
realistically simply means see-
ing yourself as you are - count-
ing your good points as well as
your demerits, your accom-
plishments as well as your fail-
ures. And if you can tke this
prescription, you'll be taking
psychic vitamins.

The unconfident neede the
psychic vitamin of realism, for
they have no clear vision of
themselves. They know their
lacks well, but not their virtues.
They are expert at scorning,
belittling, disparaging and un-
derrating themselves - but not
at valuing themselves. Their
talents aren't spectacular
enough, they think. Their
achievements are nothing. To
their good qualities, they're
blind. People may think well
of them. The evidence may be
stacked high in their favor.
But they don't budge their self-
respect from its same low level.

[Column 3]
Let's say their job pays off
with a fat check at the end of
the week. They still insist it's
an ''unimportant'' job. Friends
say their party was gay. They
say it should have been gayer.
If they're praised, praise rolls
off their minds. If they're call-
ed attractive, they feel it is
flattery. They've lost the knack
of believing good things about

much of myself,'' said a young

superior to me. But I can't
seem to help it . . . it's a habit.''

It's a habit, all right - one of
deflating ourselves while we in-
flate others. And it's a disas-
trous habit calculated to send
anyone's self-confidence into a
depression, to make any of us
feel small and inadequate and
unworthy and unwanted. But,
fortunately, it's a habit that
can be changed. And the best
way to change it is by culti-
vating a policy of thinking well
of ourselves, of putting to-
gether again the opinion of our-
selves that we've torn to shreds.

Take a good look at your as-
sets, says the psychiatrist, in-
stead of forever harping on
your faults. In other words,
instead of always thinking
about what they've got that
you haven't got, start thinking
about what you've got.

''But what are my assets?''
many ask in bewilderment. ''I
didn't know I had any.'' Assets
aren't world-shaking things re-
served for the great and the
mighty. All of us have them.
They are everything - little or
big - that we do in the course
of a day or a year, and that we
do well. These things that we
do well are the evidence in our
favor. They can be our credit
sheet in life. The reason so
many of us pass them up is that
we're so busy staring at other
people's glory and at our own

So here are few to remind
you. Maybe you're well-read
or well-informed. Maybe you
have a pleasing personality, do
nice things for others, get
along swimmingly with people.
Maybe you keep your home in
apple-pie order, though you
haven't remarked it to your-
self lately. Maybe that job of
yours is ''responsible'' or ''in-
teresting'' as everyone says it
is, though you yourself talk it
down. And maybe there are
lost of other jobs you do well
that you count as mere
nothings. Maybe, in other
words, you've been seeing your-
self lopsidely - your good
points and accomplishments in
a haze, your failings in bold re-
lief. To see yourself realistical-
ly, on the other hand, means to
see yourself whole, to let your
good qualities get a grip on
your thinking. And when they
get that grip - when you earn-
estly believe in them - you'll
have all the confidence you

William James, the great
psychologist, spoke of a per-

[Column 5]
son's ''inner atmosphere.'' It's
the feeling tone our criss-cross-
ing thoughts and emotions
create deep inside of us. It
may be a nice, warm, cozy feel-
ing of self-content, of knowing
that we are good enough for
life. Or it may be just the
opposite. We, ourselves, make
it the one or the other.

If we are ridden with doubt
and mistrust, if our self-respect
is shabby then the prevailing
message we send to our hearts
daily is one of self-disapproval
and sick despair. But if, on
the other hand, our prevailing
message is that we are as good
as the next fellow and can
tackle our life job as well, then
our inner mood glows with sat-
isfaction and vitality and hope.
We feel equal to ''anything
that may turn up,'' as James

This emotion-warming con-
viction that we are equal to
life is the healthy inner glow
that self-confidence creates.
