Sometimes, it feels like the world is out to get you. Other times, you’re your own worst enemy. Here are three ways you may be holding yourself back…
You’re not reflecting: Nobody knows you better than you, and if you’re not taking enough time to reflect, you’ll never get anywhere. You get so caught up in your work, that you never have time to figure out what you want for yourself, and instead focus on other’s opinions of you. You’re great at your job, but have you stopped to consider how often you dream about doing something different?
You haven’t cut out the negativity: If you’re repeatedly being told that you can’t accomplish your goals, it’s time to change the station. Those negative people are the worst. It might be time to kick them to the curb.
You can’t get past yourself: Stop criticizing yourself so much. No matter what mistakes you’ve made, forgive yourself and move on. Look at yourself from an outsider’s point of view and see how that changes your perspective.
