I don’t know about you, but I can be my own worst critic! If something goes wrong, I kick myself in the butt 10 times more and harder than anyone would dream to ever do to me! I know… I am being completely authentic here. Me? Kick myself in the butt? I am normally the one that is doing the butt kicking (figuratively of course). But I want you to know that no one is perfect. I am not perfect, you are not perfect and we have to commit right now to stop being so hard on ourselves.
We have a lot to do in life and it doesn’t do us any good to be so hard on ourselves. Here are 4 quick laser focused reminders why you need to cut yourself some major slack.
4 Smart Reminders Why to Cut Yourself Some Slack!
- No one Is Perfect – We all know this, but at times we have to re-focus on this. Absolutely no one is perfect; everyone makes mistakes. The key is what you do as a result of a challenge that happens to you. How do you move onward and forward from something?
- It Takes Guts To Go For It In Life – Remember that it takes a lot of determination and guts to go for what you want in life. While other people are thinking on things, you are taking action on things. Don’t be too hard on yourself.
- Mistakes Are Part of the Journey to Success – Instead of being too hard on yourself, shift your mindset about mistakes. Remind yourself that you are going to become a better person as a result of going through things.
- Your Journey Will Help Someone Else – Know that some day your ‘story’ is going to help someone else. It may not appear so right now, but go back to knowing that any learning lessons can always help someone else.
So do yourself a favor right now. Close your eyes and take a deep cleansing breath! And here is your virtual kick in the butt to say ‘cut yourself some slack’! You are positively extraordinary. You are amazing and the world is waiting for your gifts. When you have challenges, know that tomorrow is a brand new day. So get up, brush yourself off and move onward and forward. You have got this!
