Although it’s important to wave goodbye to people that no longer need to be in our lives, there needs to be an end to the negative ways that we treat our own selves. Most times we become so blind to our own negativity because it’s become ingrained in our daily lives; hindering us from our ultimate capability.
It goes unnoticed and we question what is blocking our blessings when the answer has been in the mirror all along. After my own self reflection, here’s what I’m elevating from in 2019.
Being your own biggest critic
Once a new year approaches, people love to announce that they’re cutting people off that are “toxic” or “hating”. But, in reality they’re their biggest hater. The way we speak to and treat others with love and care is what we should also project onto ourselves.
What may seem as minor as saying you don’t like how you look today can set the tone for the rest of your day. No matter how small an accomplishment you make is, praise yourself for it.
Often self-doubt can stop us from putting out our best creations or giving our all in what we do. There’s such power in the tongue and if you vocalize that things will work out in your favor, then the self-doubt will have no choice but to move out of the way. Confidence allows us to put in our best effort and see the results come to fruition.
Procrastination is a vice that has been a longtime battle that I and I’m sure many face. Many of us could be further along with our goals, but what we choose to procrastinate on continues to build up. You can’t randomly wake up one day and defeat procrastination; it’s a timely process. But, the first step you can take is tackling small tasks that you usually put off. Once your mind thinks “later”, quickly switch it to “No, now” and create that pattern for yourself.
