So Far You’ve Survived 100 Percent of Your Worst Days

“So far you’ve survived 100 percent of your worst days. You’re doing great!”

Try this: give yourself some credit for all your accomplishments-whether big or small. Do this everyday and you’ll start feeling energized, motivated, and eager to reach new heights! It’s a deep human need to feel recognized and appreciated, and if we don’t do it ourselves, a thousand recognitions would never be enough.

Research shows that people who give themselves some credit have better relationships with co-workers, family members, and friends. Apparently, it’s the first step towards being appreciative to others as well. As the saying goes, “You can’t give what you don’t have.”

Giving yourself some credits also allows you to work up some patience and understanding for yourself. Unrealistic expectations we set for ourselves are the very reason why we often end up as our worst critic. As admirable as it is to set high goals and expectations, failures and miscalculations are as inevitable as traffic on a Monday morning. While there are things we can control and manage, success is still about failing and trying again. If we can’t even pat ourselves on the back for atleast trying, we’ll never have the motivation and the strength to rise.

There will be moments when people will overlook our value and accomplishments. Consequently, we will feel left out and under-appreciated. When nobody comes to the rescue, we alone can pick ourselves out of the dirt. That is why learning how to give ourselves some credit, or loving ourselves, is an important ingredient to survival and success.
