I tried to be a boy
I tried to be a girl
I tried to be a mess
I tried to be the best
I guess I got it wrong
The person we bully the most is ourselves. This already starts at the age of six! We are in the midst of a self bullying epidemic.
Most of us are unaware that the self sabotaging actions we take, the negative thoughts we think and the pressure we feel is coming from ourselves. Do you sometimes get down on yourself for not measuring up to the expectations you or others have for your body, career, children, finances or relationships? Do you feel you are not accomplishing enough, no matter how? Do you play it safe and small? Do you feel like the whole world is on your shoulders? Do you feel never good enough – always average?
I have never met an average woman. Not a single one!
What I have met though, is too many women who thought they were average; who felt they were ordinary because some one, or many some-ones, taught them they were.
Self sabotage blocks your success by working against your own self interests.
The only limits that you face are the limits of your own ambition, talent and dedication. Acknowledge yourself. Appreciate yourself. See yourself through a more honest, more realistic lens.
Get an attitude!
