To achieve the Success, first thing you need to do is to be kinder to yourself. And, here are the four crucial points you need to implement:
1. Notice your self-talk:
In times of failure or challenge, noticing your self-talk can help you replace it with self-compassion. Instead of saying things like, “I’m such an idiot!” you might say, “I had a moment of absentmindedness and that’s okay.”
2. Write yourself a letter:
When your emotions are overwhelming, write a letter to yourself as if you were writing to a friend. It might feel strange at first, but your comforting words will help to normalize the situation rather than blow it out of proportion.
3. Develop a self-compassion phrase:
Use a mantra or a phrase that you can turn to in challenging situations, so you can deal with them calmly and with grace.
4. Make a daily gratitude list:
Write down five things you feel grateful for every day, or are proud of having accomplished. This may sound overly simplistic, but this extremely short exercise can produce powerful and long-lasting results.
