Increase Encouragement Big-Time

Want to know how to add to the secret sauce that makes your life deliciously enjoyable?  Perhaps find a way to add something that will brighten up the various flavor notes already going on?  The missing ingredient to the recipe that is your life is likely encouragement.  Self-love should involve encouragement, and self-encouragement is something that should be sprinkled liberally throughout your life on a daily basis.  In fact, you should spend at least as much effort encouraging yourself as you do in terms of providing encouragement to others.

It’s sad; we’d all rather catch ourselves doing something wrong instead of celebrating all that we do right.  Just how, exactly, is that supposed to motivate ourselves to live in harmony with our WHY and achieve all of our S.M.A.A.R.T. goals?

So here are a few steps to help you improve on the recipe of life so that your self-image is all the more palatable:

Step One: Make a concrete decision that every time you’re tempted to berate yourself, you’ll motivate yourself instead.

Nothing says “encouragement” like motivating yourself to reach higher!  Berating yourself just drives things like your self-esteem and enthusiasm levels lower…and lower…and lower…  Whenever you catch yourself heading towards the negative, you must pivot towards the positive instead.

And no one can do that for you.  You’re going to have to stop, catch yourself in the act, and commit to changing how you treat yourself.

Step Two: Give yourself permission to be imperfect.

Seriously, you don’t live in Heaven or Nirvana…you live on Planet Earth, girlfriend.  Stop sweating perfection; it’s not happening!  Instead throw your energy and attention toward being your personal best instead of focusing on flaws.

Step Three: Do unto yourself as you’d do unto others.

Whenever you’re tending towards self-critical behavior, ask yourself whether you’d be this harsh with a loved one or a friend.  Odds are, you wouldn’t.

So if you’re wonderful to others, try turning the sunshine and sugar your own way!

Ultimately, nothing’s more delicious than living a life where you’re your own best friend and NOT your own worst enemy. The epitome of encouragement when it comes to little old YOU is where you have a grounded and solid sense of self-compassion.

Just like when you first try out a new recipe, you may nail things the first try, or you may have to practice.  Either way, it’s worthwhile work to increase your feelings of worthiness.  Be an encourager.  The world has enough critics already.  That doesn’t just go for what you say and do in relation to others; it also concerns how you treat yourself!
