We are only as smart as we allow ourselves to be. We are only as motivated as we allow ourselves to be. We are only as fun, kind and beautiful as we allow ourselves to be. We can be our own worst enemies or our own best friends. Unfortunately a lot of us hate on ourselves far too often – sometimes without even realizing it. I’ll give you a good example – I wake up everyday and even though I’m a Life Coach, I will sit down to write these affirmations and block myself mentally. I’ll start to think about whether I wrote something like this before or am I running out of topics to write about in general. As I do that to myself it ends up taking me much longer to get the words that are on the tip of my tongue out because I’m my own worst critic.
Criticizing my own work in my head, I’ve blocked myself from being able to perform my own work for all of you reading this. Now, is there something you’ve been trying to accomplish, participate in or get motivated for that you’re criticizing yourself about? Be honest with yourself because we all do it. From the moment we look in the mirror to putting on an outfit to heading out the door, we subconsciously affirm things to ourselves that are negative. When you catch yourself doing this – pause and reverse your statement into a positive one. The more you affirm the positive and beautiful things, the more positive and beautiful things you’ll see!
