Kindness + Potential = Self - Kindness



One of the pitfalls to be mindful of as you reach for greater heights in your potential is being too harsh on you!


That’s right. As you stretch for that next level it’s going to be important to be aware of how you talk to yourself.


Just as a coach balances feedback you too will need to consider how you talk to you.


More specifically, you may wanna consider upping your daily dose of ‘Self Kindness.


Check this out from Dr. Neff…


“Self-kindness, by definition, means that we stop the constant self-judgment and disparaging internal commentary that most of us have come to see as normal. It requires us to understand our foibles and failings instead of condemning them. It entails clearly seeing the extent to which we harm ourselves through relentless self-criticism, and ending our internal war.


But self-kindness involves more than just stopping self-judgment. It involves actively comforting ourselves, responding just as we would to a dear friend in need. It means we allow ourselves to be emotionally moved by our own pain, stopping to say, “This is really difficult right now. How can I care for and comfort myself in this moment?” With self-kindness, we soothe and calm our troubled minds. We make a peace offering of warmth, gentleness, and sympathy from ourselves to ourselves, so that true healing can occur.”


Catch yourself today. How’s your level of self kindness right now?


With ARETE,
