Hey mompreneur are you too busy to pat yourself on the back and appreciate everything you do?
Well, it’s time you started appreciating yourself… and make appreciating yourself a daily practice!
How often do you focus on all the wonderful things you accomplish daily?
How often to you feel the sense of happiness and wholeness with a job well done?
Do you find yourself focusing on the ‘glass half-empty’ side of your life/business/family?
Do you find yourself in the habit of buying into the icky feelings of insecurity?
Did you know that one of my friends (and fellow business owner) actually HIGHLIGHTS her tasks when she completes them rather than scribbling them out? This practice makes her feel a heightened sense of accomplishment and HAPPY when she completes tasks on her list.
The messages that we tell ourselves are just as, if not MORE important than accomplishing the tasks we set out to tackle!
And having confidence in yourself breeds even more action and further accomplishments.

Where does your self confidence hover?
Are you aware of any of your confidence killers?
What trips you up?
Do you have confidence sabotaging behaviors?
If you buy into negative thinking and blind side your accomplishments – you will likely find yourself as your own worst enemy.
Lack of confidence is often triggered by self-sabotaging bad habits
One of the key ways to overcome a confidence gap is to focus on what you HAVE ACCOMPLISHED vs. what you have left undone.
Confidence improves the minute you focus on positive things and put yourself into the gratefulness zone.
The next time you’re feeling that dreadful feeling of lack plaguing your life, try focusing on something positive that you have happening in your life!
Ruminating is a bad habit that keeps you stuck in the sour-spot of negativity. Focusing on negative actually brings you more negative. SO, instead of drowning in sorrowful lack, I invite you instead to shift over to gratefulness.
What are you grateful for today?
Your Sanity Assignment
Take a few deep breaths and list five to ten things you are grateful that you’ve accomplished or received today (or in the past week!) Whether it is business or pleasure, personal or professional… it doesn’t matter. Simply list five to ten things and then check in with yourself to see how you feel after the exercise.
