Calling Yourself Out
Let's get really real for a minute here. The farther I get into my personal development I am finding it is so easy to fall down that slippery slope and jump back to my comfort zone instead of trail blazing forward! I'm sure, I'm not alone in this?
It's human nature to want to feel comfort and living in that space is nice and cozy BUT we are not growing in that space. To keep growing we need to first call ourselves out on taking the "easy way out" instead of working on our goals. Thus "Parent Yourself" comes into play.
If you think of yourself as your own parent, what would a parent say about slacking off on your dreams? You are so worth them! You just need to apply the time and effort. #amirite? So as an adult why do allow ourselves to give up on our dreams and just accept the "norm" because it's comfortable?
WAKE UP! Call yourself on your own sh!t! You know yourself, your habits, your avoidance tendencies and what empowers you. I'm not saying to allow yourself to fall into negative self talk, but if you notice that you are giving up on yourself (your dreams, etc.).... call yourself out.
Be your own parent and set yourself up for success. Set up a "chore chart" or a dream plan in this case to keep your goals at the fore front of your mind. Set up a reward system for completing big goals that keep you moving forward. A lot of those little systems put in play to keep kids "on track" can be used as an adult. Find what motivates you and re-invent it to attack the steps that will make you grow.
