How well do you score. . . yourself?
We have talked about the 3 C’s – Criticize, Condemn and Complain.
And we have talked about the 3 E’s – Encourage, Empower and Empathize.
I trust right now you are practicing the 3 E’s on the people around you, your co-workers, family and friends and seeing tremendous results. So let me ask you a question:
Which of those is closest to the way you speak to yourself?
You know, your self talk, 3 C’s or 3 E’s?
We all talk to ourselves all day every day. That constant dialogue is either building you up, or tearing you down. Which is it for you? Are you even aware of it? What are you saying to yourself right now? Are you your biggest cheerleader or your worst enemy?
Do you criticize yourself because you didn’t clean your house or for your busy schedule? Do you condemn yourself for your weight, your inattention to detail or your parenting skills? Maybe your negative thoughts appear as complaining about every little thing silently to yourself.
How would it feel if you actually encouraged yourself and were your biggest supporter? What if you empowered yourself to make decisions that supported you? If something doesn’t go the way you hoped or planned, what would happen if you had a little empathy for yourself?
Treat yourself with the honor and respect you deserve. Treat yourself as well as you treat others!
TAKE CHARGE NOW, these thoughts are within your control. Throw out the old self talk and replace it with the new!
