Journey Towards Self-Improvement and Winning at Life…
No one just pops into the world ready and equipped to CRUSH LIFE! Absolutely no one!
Knowing and believing in yourself is already like a superpower. Knowing what your true capabilities are and believing that you can achieve the things that you want is incredible and make you feel like you’re always winning at life!
However, many of us fall into the traps of bad mental habits such as self-pitying and/or victim mindset. These kinds of thinking force us to think that nothing will ever go our way. That when things go south, it’s only because we were not capable enough or that we were destined for failure.
These are even fuelled with intrusive thoughts such as. “What if I get rejected?”, “What if he/she is better than me?”, or “Do I really deserve this?”. These kinds of thoughts force us to self-deprecate and undermine our value as a person. Some even take solace in these thoughts as they can serve as a great cover-up for not even trying in the first place!
Though most of the time it is not your fault for having this kind of mentality, as some of us certainly did not grow up in the most nourishing of environments. Some of you may have even been raised as a toddler wherein your temper tantrums often got you exactly what you wanted from your parents. This forces you to believe that giving up and complaining is the fastest way to achieve a goal. Spoiler alert for the real world: it is not!
Taking the next step
Now, we can blame our upbringing all day long for the wreck that we are now, but that isn’t what you’re here for, isn’t it? And it’s important to know that it´s not your fault, as many coping mechanisms, were learnt unconsciously- outside of your awareness.
You’re here because you know there’s something that must be changed. You’re here because one day you woke up and realized that you can’t go on as you have been all this time. For that, congratulations because you’ve already unlocked the first step at crushing life and winning — Self-awareness.
Now before you start beating yourself up for what you have been doing all this time, remember that absolutely no one was born ready to face life as it is! You were doing what you knew best in the best way that you knew how to. You were doing what it took for you to survive and now that you know a better way to do it, you must use it.
It is now up to you whether you’ll continue this path of self-love and take the courageous next step, or will you continue to cower in the face of adversities that life throws at you. The choice is entirely up to you.
Believing in yourself
Know that the journey towards self-love and encouragement does not have to be lonely. You do not have to be afraid of taking on all these new challenges by yourself. You can always ask a friend or even a coach to guide you all the way.
Having these people who care about you as your support system ensures that you do not lose sight of your goal. They also make sure that you make consistent progress no matter how small or huge. Overall, this will make your experience much more enjoyable and fulfilling.
At the end of the day, whilst you do need a coach, they will also only be there to support you through. They will not be the ones to take the necessary steps towards your development as a person because the only one who can make that decision is you.
