You just finished some great work.
You did a wonderful job – Bravo!
Now, what are you saying to yourself?
How about, “You are awesome ____ (your name)! On to the next step.”
Notice how good it feels to encourage yourself and how infrequently it might happen.
You are a creature of habit – your self-talk may be critical – let’s change that now.
Today start a new habit for success.
Support yourself for success.
First, decide on your top 3 tasks.
Then, set a time deadline for each task.
Finally, stop after you complete the work and say, “You are awesome,” and mean it.
Decide today that after each accomplishment you will do 2 things:
1. Cross it off your list – your brain will send you a positive hormonal “kick” for finishing it.
2. Say something kind to yourself. “Well done!” will do. “You are awesome!” is better.
Science tells us these 2 steps – completing a task and recognizing results – improves your work.
How? The recognition = reinforcing the “get it done” behavior = new habits for success.
Remind yourself today that your work matters – you are awesome.
Focus on all the good that you do in the world.
Then support yourself with a positive statement.
“You are awesome” will do.
Remember: support yourself for success.
