SERIES 10 – IT’S ALL ABOUT COMPASSION?

My viewpoint: Are you friends with your inner critic?

Click on the link to listen – LINK

We spend so much time in our own heads. Listening to that voice that is trying to keep us safe but also stopping us from moving forward.

It’s that inner critic that is neither good nor bad but not necessarily helpful either. Vera, my inner voice, is just trying to stop me from making a mistake, making a fool of myself or getting hurt. But that means she is stopping me from fully experiencing life.

I’ve found the best thing is to become friends with her so I can better understand myself and decide what is best for me.

My viewpoint: Multitasking is nothing to be proud of

We’re busy busy busy, trying to do 101 things. We’re so busy we try and do things simultaneously, so that we can tick more things off our ‘to-do’ list, which seems never ending.

What if we stopped being so busy?

What if we focused on what was important?

What if we tried to do one thing at one time?

Wouldn’t life feel calmer? Wouldn’t we be happier? Wouldn’t we be living in the here and now?

The answer to being less busy is not multitasking.

My viewpoint: Is what you’re thinking right?

Are you okay with where you are right now?

Is it where you thought you’d be?

Have you taken responsibility for where you are now?

There are times in life, when we feel that we’re not where we should be. But we are where we are because of just one person. That is ourselves.

It’s the thoughts that sabotage us and stop us from getting to where we want to go.

My viewpoint: Failure is not a swearword

When I worked in the corporate world, making a mistake and failing was not an option. I felt like I had to be two steps ahead of my peers. Have the ability to read the minds of my seniors. And be the shield between my team and our leaders. Failure was not acceptable.

I look back at my time now, with wiser eyes and having experienced the world on my terms, realising how limiting that environment was. Yes, I accept the part I played. But I also acknowledge that it was part of the culture and not just my imagined reality.

The only time failing doesn’t serve us is if we don’t learn from it and, more importantly, then don’t do something with that learning.
