Summary

What do you tell yourself in your head? Do you speak well to yourself? Would you allow others to speak to you the way you speak to yourself?

Tune in to learn about: 

  • Turning mistakes into opportunities to grow as a person;

Key Takeaways To Tune In For

  • Comparison is the thief of joy. Nobody really takes pictures of themselves crying. You usually see the best of other people, and not their struggles.  
  • We’ve all made mistakes. Mistakes are learning lessons, not negative events. You know what not to do now, so you have a better starting point when you restart. Now that you know better, you can do better.
  • Remember, you don’t learn from your experiences…you learn from reflecting on your experiences. 
  • The hardest person to forgive is yourself. You probably would be shocked if your friends speak about themselves out loud the way you speak to yourself in your head.
  • When you put up walls to protect yourself, you don’t allow people to get close to you. You don’t give yourself a chance to be loved. 
  • Your life is not about you, your life is about what you contribute to the world that will help other people. You need to strengthen your mindset, so you can fulfil this purpose. 
  • We are all on different timelines. You are not late. You are not early. You are exactly on time. 

 

If you ever wonder “What if what I want to do has already been done?” remember: 

“It doesn’t matter if what you want to do has already been done, because nobody can do it like you” 

Don’t you watch several people who make similar content? You probably do. Yet, you resonate with each of them on a different level. 

People may relate to you more than they relate to other people.
