Dissolve the Self-Criticism
Take a second to ponder this question:
How much is your constant self-criticism truly serving you?
Yes, you want to be honest with yourself, and look at the truth of your abilities, skills, and circumstances. It’s valuable to see where you could make different choices that could better meet your needs.
My question is, what if you encouraged yourself, and celebrated the effort you are making?
What if you gave yourself credit?
What if you saw the progress?
What if you loved yourself unconditionally?
It’s okay to let go of these patterns. It’s safe to step into a new way of being. Open your heart to the power of self-love.
It’s worth it.
Will You Stay on the Sidelines?

“The truth is there are no rules. What companies really want is someone who creates more value than they cost. Forget what you’re ‘supposed to’ do. That’s following into the schooled mindset of waiting for permission. Shed that now. But don’t break rules just to be a trouble maker, break them to become an indispensable value creator..”
Quote of the Day
“Think thoughts that make you happy. Do things that make you feel good. Be with people who make you feel good. Eat things that make your body feel good. Go at a pace that makes you feel good.”
