Your Best Motivator

Did you ever have a day when nothing seemed to go right?

When – one after another – everything appeared to be an obstacle to overcome?

On days like that, there is one thing that can change the atmosphere and boost your spirits.dejected-tn

And it is something you can do to change your day.

Who is Your Worst Critic?

With each negative comment or outright rejection it is easy to become your own worst critic.

On those days when your inner critic is busy sending your mind negative messages, it can be hard to maintain strong self-esteem and confidence.

But here is the good part.

There IS a way you can build and maintain self-esteem and confidence.

undervalue what they are.” – Malcolm S. Forbes



From Meredith Bell, ProStar Coach:

“Too often, our self-talk is critical and judgmental, which leads to feelings of inferiority and a low sense of self-worth.

“We focus on what we haven’t done or on how what we have done falls short of our (often unrealistic) expectations.

“The way to build your confidence is to be on the look-out for things you’ve done well in the course of your day, no matter how small, and recognize the accomplishments.

“You can’t rely on someone else to notice everything you do. And besides, you’re apt to discount their input if you don’t first recognize yourself the value of what you’ve completed.

“At the end of each day, take time to reflect on what you’ve done so far in that day that you are proud of.

“Maybe you’ve taken time to offer a kind word to a stranger, or you’ve made an important business call you’ve been putting off, or you exercised patience in a trying situation.

“All of these actions count.

“They have a positive impact on your self-image and strongly influence what you’ll do tomorrow and the next day.”

Thank you Meredith Bellfor your positive motivation!
