How often do you find yourself fixating on the things that didn’t go well, rather than looking at the positive things from your day?
I’m all for learning from mistakes, and reviewing things to see how to make them better in the future. But focussing on the negatives (even if your aim is to correct them) can wear you down.
How often to you take time to out to review what you have done well, reviewed your strengths or your wins?
I expect that the answer is not very often, leaving you mulling over the things that could have gone better.
Try taking five minutes at the end of each day to write down three things that you did well, or went well. This will help you identify your strengths and wins. It will also give you something to look back on when you are in need of a lift.
Don’t worry if you can’t think of three things every day. Even one thing will help redress the balance of focussing on the things that could have gone better.. Hopefully this will give your confidence a small boost.
You could also do the same at the end of each month.What went well? What did you learn from? What do you need to change ot meet your goals? Just remember
You are capable.
You do have many strengths and talents.
You just need to remind yourself.
