Who is your worst enemy?
Take a few minutes now to just sit and think who your worst enemy is. Who is the one that makes you feel like you are not worthy, who doubts you all the time, who questions nearly everything you do, who punishes you when you don’t stick to a new habit, who tells you; you can’t do that, who tells you gosh you look fat in that, who tells you you are not good enough to go there or do that?
What did you come up with? Did you sit and think about people in your life who you are surrounded by? Did you search and search to find someone that met every single statement? Did you think about yourself????
Most of you will find that actually your own worst enemy is yourself. We all too often doubt ourselves, lack confidence in ourselves and our abilities, tell ourselves that we are not worthy, tell ourselves that we cannot do something, tell ourselves that we look fat or thin, tell ourselves that we are not as good, clever or pretty as someone else, the list goes on. Most of our problems sit within our own minds. We really are our own worst enemy.
Combat your thoughts
Here are a few things you can start doing to help yourself
Walk everywhere with your head held high
The next time you doubt yourself, take a second to think, is it really that you cannot do it, or are they negative thoughts?? Turn them into positives, tell yourself you can do it and find a way to do it
Congratulate yourself on a regular basis; take time to recognise the small things you do on a daily basis that are awesome and that you don’t acknowledge. This could be getting out of bed in the morning without snoozing your alarm, wearing something that you wouldn’t normally wear, contacting a friend to see if they are ok, getting to work even though you really don’t want to, working and supporting others, being a nice person; ;letting someone go in front of you, helping someone out etc etc
Appreciate and love your body; stop looking at all of your flaws or body parts you don’t like, the next time you complain about not liking a part of your body, actually think about what you do like, once you nail this you can then work towards accepting the things you don’t like or making small changes to help improve yourself and the way you see yourself.
Listen to your body, stop trying to push yourself, if you are unable to do something that you could do the other day just listen to your body, respect your body and don’t beat yourself up. There are other days or occasions.
Stop being so hard on yourself in every way
Most of all BE YOU, DO YOU, AND BE HAPPY
