Accept Your Faults


Hey, Happy Monday. How's your morning going? You've probably "messed up" a few times already, and your inner critic is all like,

"You should wake up earlier,"
"You should be nicer to your kids!"
"You should start researching companies."

Listen, you can let go of "you should." It's OK to accept that you're not perfect, and be a little gentler on yourself. This is easier said than done, of course, but you don't have to be perfect at accepting yourself, either!

Take a deep breathe. Start where you are. Then get on with what you need to do in your job hunt and career.
