Being gritty and playing the long game can sound like you gotta be tough and all that açade and hard on yourself.
Yet there is a very important element in playing the long game.
Being kinder on yourself.
Case in point.
I’ve got a buddy across the waters in England at the mo. We’ve partnered for about a year now connecting on the regularly on daily mini steps we can both land in our potential.
It’s great and yet there is a lesson in that.
Sometimes the steps shared are not simply about doing, they are about recovery too.
“If you are trying to reach a specific goal, ask yourself every day: What is one small step I could take toward reaching my goal? Whether you ask your question aloud or in the privacy of your own thoughts, please take a kind tone with yourself, the same you’d use for a beloved friend.”
What’s a specific goal you have?
What’s a small step towards that you can take?
You being kind in your tone to yourself?
