Do you find that you are too hard on yourself? Do you find that you always feel that there is something wrong with you or compare yourself to others?

This is normal but gets in the way of your serving at your best.

I want to share with you 4 ways you can master this and focus solely on serving at your best.

MAKE A DECISION TO ACCEPT AND BE KIND TO YOURSELF

Positive change starts with you making a decision.  Make a decision to be more compassion and accepting of yourself. This is the first sign of change.

MONITOR AND MODIFY YOU SELF-TALK

When you are stressed out overwhelmed it can be easy for you to think negatively and find that this is when you say some of the worst things to yourself that you would never say to someone else. Start by monitoring what you say to yourself, especially when you are under pressure. How true or realistic are the things that you say to yourself?  How can you balance this out to be something that is more kind, true or realistic?

MODIFY YOUR EXPECTATIONS

What are your expectations? Do they need to be lowered? You should never shy away from or feel shamed to lower your expectations. I always say you need to scale back to scale up. There is nothing wrong with starting small and then working your way up, instead of blazing forward and then burning out. It is so easy to put pressure yourself but, are you making it easy for yourself? We become more confident when we do things well and complete things.

CELEBRATE YOUR WINS

Stop brushing off your wins and focusing so much on the future or the NEXT thing. If you want to welcome more of what you have been working hard for start celebrating yourself. It does not mean you have to have a glass of wine or go and eat out but a ‘Well done’ and a pat on the back will do. I encourage my clients to create a rewards list, and celebrate yourself form the items on the list.

Hope this helped.

REMEMBER GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO BE AWESOME.
