We are our own biggest critics. When a thing goes right, we do not celebrate because of we afraid when we celebrate we’ll lose it, so we postpone or not celebrating our life. When things go wrong, we blame ourselves, feeling guilty and punish ourselves.
It’s easy to be pessimistic and that is why you need to be your own biggest fan.
Here are 10 reasons why you must be your own biggest fan:
Self Care – It is essential to take care of own self. It is not selfish, it is a necessity. If things go right, celebrate! Don’t wait! What are you waiting for? Moon to drop from the sky? If things go wrong, take a moment to reflect, understand, accept the fact, let go of what you can’t change and take it as a life lesson.
Your values – You get to uncover your own values What is important to you and why you do the thing that you do. What makes you, YOU. Are you a person that loves freedom? funny? grounded?
Uncovering your identity – Who are you? Do you know? You get to discover your own personality.
No one is going to give it to you – Things don’t just drop from the sky. If you dream of getting something, go for it. Once an acquaintance mentioned to me “The world doesn’t owe you, you gotta get it yourself!”
Give yourself a pat – When things go right, be proud of yourself. When things go wrong, give a pat that you’ve at least tried.
Stop comparing – Oh boy! We love to compare ourselves to the advertisement or the people around us. Be humble, stop the comparison, be your own inspiration.
Self Beliefs – If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will.
Your accomplishment – You know when interviewer glance through the resume, the first thing they’ll look for is your accomplishment in the past, what had you done in helping the company to success. Now being your own biggest fan, you got to see your own accomplishment. Cool ya!
Learn to be mindful – It is easy to cling to others for validation of your worthiness or the stuff we think is important. When we learn to be mindful, we’ll learn to grow.
Be your own best friend – Would you treat your best friend like crap? Criticize them, punish them or degrading them? If you don’t, then why do it to your own selves?
