It’s a wonderful feeling coaching people on how to thrive in their personal and professional lives. One of the most important steps to thriving is self-care.
When I worked as a mental health therapist, I was very good at taking care of everyone else and putting my needs low on my priorities list. Now, working as a coach, I make sure to take great care of myself and have fun. I have since learned that when I’m at my best, I deliver my best coaching.
Those of us that are in leadership, management, or service positions, must learn to value the benefits of making self-care a life-giving skill. Not only do you have the potential to develop healthier and happier habits, but it will also lead to a more fulfilling and productive career.
Taking care of yourself is NOT being selfish. It is being self-full. The contents in the cup are for me. As my cup overflows, I give to others and that is when the magic happens.
Imagine all the important people in your life. When you speak to them, do your words inspire or disempower?
So many times in this life, I have seen the amazing power of using empowering language. I haven’t met a person yet that doesn’t enjoy being seen in a beautiful light.
Speak words of beauty and watch how people rise up to become them.
What ways do you encourage yourself?
One day very soon. This will be reality. I can feel the excitement now.
What greatness will you create?
Years ago, when I would encounter negative people or situations, I used to get mad and of course blame others. Now, I say “thank you” for the reality check and work to correct the situation from within.
The truth is, a belief is just a thought you keep thinking. And if you are constantly thinking low vibration thoughts, then it will show up in your life. Garbage in, garbage out.
In your quiet time, take an honest assessment of how life is working for you. If you feel life is not working as well as you would like it to, then begin with changing your negative beliefs. This will help you to better align with whom you would like to become. Beauty in, beauty out.
How do your thoughts turn to things?
