Are You Sabotaging Your Wins?
In this post, I’m going to share with you a mindset shift that you must implement right away to help you succeed in your home based business. Whether you’re in sales, direct / affiliate sales, network marketing – you should keep on reading…
When you hear about other people’s accomplishments, do you ever feel like you haven’t really done much yourself?
You start to compare your measly accomplishments to others and then you start to feel a little down because you don’t have much to show for where you are in life?
I know I’ve felt the same way for many, many years.
When I was a kid, my family always believed in the philosophy that you can always do better, without really acknowledging your small wins. We were always our own worst critic. And I grew up with a harsh inner critic.
It got to the point where I felt that no matter how hard I tried, either way I would be disappointed with myself. So why bother. Why bother make an effort if I’m just going to shoot myself down anyway? Why bother if no one even sees how hard I’ve been working, the only thing they see is all the stuff I did wrong?
I just gave up. I gave up on my goals. I gave up on my business. I gave up on my dream. And most of all I gave up on myself.
And it wasn’t fun.
We sometimes conveniently forget all the things we’ve accomplished and we focus on all the things that went wrong instead. If you were hanging out with your best friend, would you point out all the things that they do wrong? Or would you build them up by congratulating them on their wins and on the little things that they’ve done?
So why do we sabotage our own success by criticizing ourselves negatively?
I am always reminded that it’s important to count your small successes. It’s important to celebrate your victories. Forget about doing it for other people, do it for yourself. Do what makes you happy. Learn to acknowledge that everything in your life – good and bad has brought you to become the person that you are today.
You are infinitely awesome in your own way.
When you reach a goal, celebrate it. You don’t have to throw a huge party. Give yourself a pat on the back, buy yourself something small, do something to recognize your wins. Otherwise what’s the point?
