Speak Kindly To Yourself

When you try to help another person you probably don’t start with a critical attack towards them about everything they’ve done wrong or aren’t good at. Yet, so often we speak harshly to ourselves in our own minds.

Being your own hero means standing up for yourself when critical self-talk and negative spirals of thinking are starting up in your head.

Listen to how you speak to yourself and get to know how kindly or unkindly you treat yourself every day.

Do not stand for self-bullying.

Our greatest strengths and personal superpowers are often found in those things we’re good at, and that we enjoy — our flow.

Your places of flow, be they sports, nature or something else, feed the hero part of yourself. Flow gives you purpose and meaning.

Being your own hero means showing yourself real love by developing your own values and staying true to any commitments you’ve made to yourself.

Do what you say you’re going to do and feel proud of yourself, confident in your character.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

Avoid becoming overwhelmed

Exposing yourself to too much information can actually work against you. Confusion can lead to indecision, which can easily prevent you from moving forward.

Nip it in the bud using stress-reduction techniques. Go for a walk, listen to music, cook, or write. The time away will allow you to see things from a fresh perspective.

  • General doubt: uncertainty over things happening outside of and around you.
  • Self-doubt: uncertainty within yourself, about your own abilities and decisions. 
General doubt can be good when it forces you to think critically. But self-doubt almost always gets in your the way.
Jerry Seinfeld
I think money is great. But physical and mental energy is the greatest riches of human life.
