This week, stop doubting yourself and take a real chance on yourself. You have the talent. Now you need the guts. Remember, if you never put yourself out there, then your world is never going to change. You need to play an active role in your own life.
This week, challenge yourself to say no for a change. Say no when someone asks you for a favor that you don’t have room for on your plate. Say no when someone tries to push against your boundaries. Say no when you don’t have the energy to say yes because you aren’t responsible for taking care of everyone.
This week, take a cold hard look in the mirror. Acknowledge the flaws that have been holding you back. Stop putting off change to tomorrow. Do something right now. Challenge yourself to grow today, to do better today. Don’t wait another moment just because it’s easier.
This week, give yourself some space. Don’t feel the need to fill your schedule when you haven’t had alone time in a while. Time with your thoughts can be scary, but it’s necessary. You need to learn that it’s okay to be on your own. You need to learn to enjoy your own company.
This week, be upfront about your emotions. Don’t hide them to try to come across as cool or level-headed. If you never speak up, no one will ever know what you’re thinking. It’s important to speak from the heart so people know where you stand.
This week, celebrate your accomplishments. Even if it feels small. Even if it feels silly. You should be proud of what you’ve accomplished, but you rarely take the time to celebrate because you’re always moving onto the next thing. But not this time. This time, you should pat yourself on the back. Treat yourself.
This week, be careful with what your heart tells you. Don’t make any rash decisions without thinking things through. Remember that your head should play a role in the decision too because your heart won’t always know what is best. Stay smart.
This week, work on breaking that bad habit. Don’t put this off another minute longer. You’ve been wanting to do this for a while, and you can do it. You just need to put your energy into it. You need to try. And you’ll get there eventually.
This week, reach out to someone who has been on your mind. Someone who has always been there for you but you have lost touch with over time. Let them know that you’ve been thinking of them and that you still care about them. Don’t let them feel unloved.
This week, work on your confidence. Wear something that makes you feel good about yourself. Listen to music that puts you in a better mood. Use the cologne or perfume or body spray that you love the most. Whatever you do, don’t think badly about yourself. Acknowledge what a wonderful person you are.
This week, you should do something nice for yourself. No excuses. No procrastinating. It doesn’t matter whether this means giving yourself a spa day or letting yourself sleep in a little extra longer. Do something for you because you deserve it.
This week, don’t let the little things get to you. Instead of blowing up at someone who treats you the wrong way, ask yourself whether it would be better for your peace of mind to walk away. Ask yourself whether this person is worth the trouble or whether you should simply remove yourself from the situation.
