ABC’s for Success
A ppreciate and value your life and dreams. Life is too short to waste on complaining, procrastination or a pity party. Take consistent steps to create a life of purpose, meaning, success, peace, faith and inner strength to withstand the challenges in life.
B elieve in yourself. Distance yourself from those who belittle and discourage you. Control that inner critic. Putting yourself down damages your self-esteem. Change the voice of your inner critic. Perfectionism and self-criticism are sabotaging and non-productive. Don’t be too hard on yourself… yet continue to push yourself towards the next level of improvement. Sometimes you may not “feel” like doing what you should do; i.e. balance your budget, exercise, school work, build your business, get over the blues or fight the battle of the bulge. Feelings of apathy, indifference, denial, procrastination, fear and doubt do not serve you well. Stand up and speak up when you feel someone is riding your back, abusing or disrespecting you, judging you, stabbing you in the back or simply doesn’t have your back. Surround yourself with people who believe in you instead of people who belittle you. Strengthen your confidence and self-esteem. There is a difference between being cocky and prideful and having confidence.
C onsider things from every angle. You have blind spots that can prevent you from seeing possibilities and solutions. When you are faced with a decision or problem don’t think small and don’t get stuck with a limited perspective. Practice creative thinking, communicate with others, be flexible, tap into your intuition, imagination and instincts. You can learn to see new ways of solving problems, creating solutions and resolving conflict.
