The answers tom your first question are manifold --- there are many possible causes, but basically they all relate to having the habit of thinking negatively about yourself. The problem can be rectified, often surprisingly quickly, though counselling, espcially of the CBT Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy format. The problem, whatsver its ealy origins, is worsened by parents unskilled at praising their children appropriately, and by teachers and bosses similarly impaired.

lots of things - your personality make up, hwo you were raised - if you were constantly told by parents youwere useless you will think you are.

Also agree with paul on getting credit where it is due. Amazing what a simple "good job, well done" can do for one!

Low self esteem and constantly being put down I would imagine. As well as maybe not getting proper credit on a job well done?
