Self Love

In February, we celebrate love and relationships. Let’s not forget the most important relationship with ourselves. It’s time to turn our attention inward and rediscover the incredible brilliance that resides within every one of us.

 As a life coach, I’ve had the privilege of working with clients who, much like you and me, have been conditioned to believe they are somehow less than the incredible beings they are. But here’s the truth: your essence is far more magnificent than you realize or allow yourself to believe.

We all struggle with self-doubt, grappling with bouts of impostor syndrome even when we know deep down that we are capable. These feelings often stem from internalized messages we’ve absorbed since childhood.

I vividly recall my mother’s words urging me to “be humble.” However, I misunderstood her advice, mistakenly equating humility with diminishing my worth. I thought that acknowledging my strengths meant elevating myself above others. What a flawed interpretation that was!

I’ve come to understand that true humility has nothing to do with devaluing ourselves. It’s simply about staying grounded and recognizing our inherent worth without diminishing the worth of others. It’s about celebrating our unique abilities and qualities just as we praise others for theirs.

 So, let me ask you: where is your thinking getting in the way of your greatness? It’s easy to be your worst critic, but what if you shift your mindset and be your best friend instead?

 Dr. Maxwell Maltz, author of Psycho-Cybernetics, reminds us that you can’t outperform your self-image. That’s why committing to changing how you see yourself is crucial.

Instead of feeding yourselves discouraging thoughts like “I’ll never be as good as ________” or “I always mess things up,” create new mantras. Tell yourself, “I’m unique and have my strengths to offer.”

View mistakes as opportunities for growth rather than reasons to beat yourself up. Believe in your capacity for growth and transformation; if others can, so can you.

You may be thinking that changing your thinking sounds daunting. But here’s the thing: it’s only as hard as you make it. What you believe becomes your truth, so start by making different agreements of truth for yourself to change your self-image.

 As you embark on this journey of self-love, self-appreciation, and belief,  shift your focus from self-criticism to self-love, and unlock the incredible potential and brilliance within each of us.

Believing in You!
