Are you adding to your problem by being too critical of yourself?

When you have fallen off your program and acted on your old habit, do you feel guilty
and beat up on yourself? Think of the pain you have caused yourself when you are
constantly judging and evaluating.

Remember: You are not your behavior. When you feel bad and find fault with
yourself, you empower your faults. How you focus on different situations determines
your emotions. When you feel good, you are willing to try new things. When you feel
bad about yourself, you give up in frustration.

To start to break old habits we must become effective risk takers, because progress
in life is always going to involve risk.

Many of us feel fear at the mention of the word “risk” because we associate risk with
pain. In reality, for you to be in control of your own destiny, you must be willing to be
an actor in life versus a reactor to life. This means you must be willing to risk failure

therefore never allow themselves any opportunity to stretch and grow into their
potential. Every experience gives you additional resources and references. It gives you
valuable information to draw from.

only results.

future.
