Believe in yourself.
Self-growth is possible when you are willing to develop the skills you need to succeed. Begin by building the confidence that you can do it. Remember, you are worthy of great things. When you choose to have a growth mindset, this encourages your ability to unlock untapped capabilities and bring them to realisation.
Be mindful of your self-talk.
Making statements such as “I am not capable,” “I am not good with money,” or even something like “I’m shy” can hinder your growth. Remember, you can acquire newfound skills and traits. You can become courageous, learn how to manage your money, and break out of the shyness, but telling yourself otherwise can disrupt future achievements.
Constructive criticism allows us to see ourselves through a new lens. We may not always be aware of our weak spots, but proper feedback may help us address those weaknesses. Learn to utilize valuable input from others. However, this is not to be confused with criticism in general, such as put-downs or belittling. Instead, look for productive feedback, not personal attacks.
Failure is part of the learning curve. It’s essential to allow yourself to be vulnerable, have a willingness to embrace change, and stretch outside the warm feeling of your comfort zone. A few setbacks may surface, but your energy needs to stay focused on the lessons you will acquire during moments of growth.
Change takes effort and consistency. The most important thing is to show up for yourself and remain consistent. If you fall off the growth track, pick yourself back up. It’s essential to keep moving forward.
