Stop Being So Critical- Celebrate the Win…

Look back at your year and think about your achievements…

Are you too hard on yourself? 

I mean, you might have accomplished 9 out of 10 goals but since you didn’t complete all of them 100% are you a failure? If this is you, you’re not alone.

Why are we so critical?!! Would you like to stop?…. Because you really can. 

It doesn’t have to be this way.

This is an area my clients spend some time on in private coaching. They feel like a bad mom, or a terrible partner, or a lazy employee, or a horrible person. Is this you? Because, honestly, if you are this critical of yourself, you’re probably being harsh towards your spouse and your kids. 

It’s easy to look back and see all our mistakes, but that’s not motivating. 

Instead, it’s time to look over the year and reflect on what went great. 

We all know how it feels to fail, so this time, let’s focus MORE on what we did WELL! 

Year End Reflection:

Sit down with a journal and ask yourself these questions: 

  1. Name 5 proud achievements this year.
  2. List 5 challenges you overcame this year.
  3. What did you learn about yourself?
  4. What did you learn about the people in your life?
  5. Where did I have the most fun?

Now, for the cool kids, do this exercise again but this time, imagine you’re writing this at the end of next year!

 How do you want to answer the questions one year from now? 

What will you be proud of? 

What do you want to have learnt about yourself, your kids, and your partner? 

What challenges do you want to have overcome, and where do you want to have the most fun this year?  

Let’s do it together. 

If you want help to change your life, you need to do something DIFFERENT. 

It’s not a matter of trying harder. You need new tools. New skills. Support in real time and accountability. 

I’ve got you!

Your coach,

Jenn
