February 12, 2018 – Don’t Beat Yourself Up Too Much

February 12, 2018 – Don’t Beat Yourself Up Too Much

Imagine if you talked to your best friend the way you talked down to yourself. Would they still be around? Oftentimes, we beat ourselves up because we are not where we feel we should be in our career. I would like to offer a new perspective. All of the energy you expense beating yourself up can be used in a more positive way. Instead of berating yourself for not making enough money, use the energy to update your resume and apply to a new job opportunity. Rather than feeling down about not getting the job, use the energy to solicit feedback from the employer so that you can apply what you’ve learned to your next interview opportunity. Don’t beat yourself up too much. It does nothing for you but distract you from taking baby steps toward your next best opportunity. Just keep moving forward.

Love & Light,
