Battle for Self Concept – Justin Garn


The Critical Battle for Self Concept

In this life, the victories we win on the battlefield in our minds are much weightier than any physical skirmishes we may engage in. The most crucial of these mental battles are over the matter of self-concept, or what we believe and feel about ourselves. Whoever prevails in this battle has very little chance of failing in contests to come. The self-concept our youth (and we ourselves) believe and accept forms the limit of how much value we allow ourselves to receive and how high we allow ourselves to rise, or conversely, if we are even worth fighting for at all.

Justin is a thinking man. He really helps you get to the bottom of the problem and to teaches the basic fundamentals that we often glance over. He came to the studio dressed and ready to present. After a little orientation of what to expect and his options he was ready to go.


We recorded his interview questions and the opening of his presentation together and then rearranged the studio for his presentation. He chose to do his presentation standing up with a white board. He had a few notes, but he didn’t need them much. He knew his material. The staff sat in around the lights and listened and took notes. A few time we asked questions for clarification. We were all edified.
