When you struggle, what does that little voice inside say? Is s(he) kind? Does that lift you up? How does it make you feel?
From personal an professional experience I’ve found that’s usually not the case. Usually we’re pretty darn mean to ourselves. But would you ever speak to another person like that? What about someone you love? Likely not. How would it feel if you offered yourself the same compassion? How would impact your ability to be successful?
Next time you struggle try this on, speak to yourself just as you would speak to someone you love who is struggling. See how it impacts how you feel & your ability to turn it around.
