No matter what you do there are going to be people that try and bring you down. There are going to be people that look at you and pinpoint the one thing that you’ve done wrong. No matter how hard you try there are going to be people that find the negatives. The negative energy that these people emit into your life holds a spot in the back of your mind and remains there waiting for it’s time to come out.
The problem with this, is that we hold ourselves at a higher level. Our inner ego holds itself at a higher level then the rest of the world and when these negative thoughts build up or inner ego destroys us. We continue to tell ourselves the negative things are right. That we need to work on them. That we need to be perfect.
If we fail, we let that one failure fester for a long period of time. It’s not that we have a bad day, it’s that we allow one negative aspect or one small failure control the rest of our day or week. This can create a downward spiral that could last a month or even longer. The need to be perfect destroys us from the inside out.
The need to be perfect creates a critic within ourselves. We become so intensely critical of our own lives that we lose perspective. We focus so much on one thing that it becomes blurred. Altering your perspective or getting someone else perspective can create clarity. It can give you the positive energy that you need in order to see yourself clearly.
Rather than focusing on the negative aspects of your life focus on the positive. If you fail at something it’s not the end of the world. It’s not going to destroy everything you’ve already accomplished. Failure breeds success.. in any way that you look at it. If you fail a test, you study harder and pay more attention so that when the next one comes around you ace it. If you fail a lift you build that muscle group, you practice more and then you do it until you succeed. Whether it’s in school, sport, or life in general your failures will breed success.
Don’t allow yourself to listen to the inner critic that tears you apart. Don’t allow yourself to focus on one thing when there are so many positive things that you have already accomplished and are on the way to accomplishing.
We are own worst critic.
There are always going to be people that try to bring you down… but for every person that emits negative energy into your life there are two positive ones.
Allow yourself to step back from your inner critic.
Re-think the path that you’re on.
Did you fail at something?
Have you failed at something before?
How did you overcome it… and how will you overcome this one?
Rather than tearing yourself apart and being your own worst critic, accept yourself for everything that you are. Accept your failures as building blocks for the future. Become your own biggest fan.
