We have things we can improve on to make a better version of ourself whether that is working on your health and fitness, career and relationship and much more.
Have you noticed that there are things we all do that hold us back and stop us from living our best lives? I see the same negative actions creeping into our lives over and over again.
1.Trying To Please everyone
When you please others, you disconnect from your authentic power. You deny your magnificence, talents and skills because you believe pleasing others will give you want you to need. People’s judgements of you are based on outward observations.
2. Fearing Change
We fear change because we can’t anticipate the outcome. However, staying put can be riskier than changing. Whether it’s in your career or a relationship, you risk being left behind if you don’t continue to grow.
The paradox is that although we reject uncertainty, we have the skills to change and evolve. Fear is an emotion that gets in the way we lose clarity about our potential.
3.Living in the past
Many people make one mistake because they try to ignore their emotions altogether, which is the worst thing. To move forward, feel your emotions. This is key to understanding why you are upset in the first place.
Let the tears come until you can cry no more or scream into a pillow until the frustration ebbs away. Let it all out to let go of the past and live a happy life. Allow yourself to express your emotions, but don’t dwell on them.
4.Putting yourself down
Being self-deprecating can be a way of coping with anxiety and stress and finding the humour in tough situations.
While it can be a short-term mechanism to make ourselves feel better, it’s not a good habit to get into the long-term. The more willing you are to put yourself down, the less likely you notice when someone else starts putting you down.
While everyone overthinks situations once in a while, some people are plagued with a constant barrage of thoughts all the time. Chronic overthinkers rehash conversations they had yesterday, second-guess every decision they make and imagine disastrous outcomes all day, every day.
Thinking too much about something often involves more than words—overthinkers conjure up disastrous images, too. Their minds resemble a movie where they imagine their car going off the road or replay distressing events over and over again.
Thinking too much prevents you from getting anything done. And, it wreaks havoc on your mood.
