I listened to a mentor Lisa Nichols. She did a podcast that shared her story and journey to becoming her best. She was a broke single mother who could not even afford diapers for her 8 month old. Years later as her success was in front of her she found herself engaged and looking forward to being married when she realized her fiancé was abusive. She then went to seek medical help and was diagnosed clinically depressed. She was so successful in her business, but her personal was in a mess. She asked the doctor, "You mean I am sad?" Yes! Part of her recovery came because she decided to ask herself three questions every morning. Initially she could not finish the statements without crying and without feeling like she was searching for any answer.
Here are the steps.
1. Look in the mirror and look in your eyes when you speak.
2. Use your name at the beginning of each statement.
3. Do this as long as you need to: 6 month+
Finish each of these Statements:
Vilma (your name), I am proud of... - find anything, there is a reason to stand tall
Vilma (your name), I forgive you for... - we forgive others but often forget to forgive ourselves
Vilma (your name), I commit to you... - we commit to others things we need to do, NOW commit to yourself
I tried this, I too cried... silly right...
Let me know how this makes you feel and hopefully after the initial of feeling awkward, incompetent, or whatever other feeling you have found a way to find a way to increase your personal happiness & confidence.
