A great way to remind yourself how good you are is to keep an accomplishment diary. It is a smart tool to remind yourself just how good you are and what you have to be thankful for and pleased about in your life right now.
It is something I used to remind myself of my accomplishments and successes after going through a toxic relationship, divorce and learning to be me again.
Buy yourself a beautiful notebook or a day to view diary and once a week for a month jot down your answers to the following questions.
Don’t give me any excuses about you haven’t got the time to do it! Take 10 minutes per week, sit down and jot down your thoughts to the following:
- What have I got to be grateful for in my life right now?
- What am I happy about in my life right now?
- Why am I happy about these things?
- What did I accomplish last week?
- What am I excited about in my life right now?
- Who do I love and appreciate in my life?
- Who do I like hanging around?
- Why do I like hanging around with them?
- Who loves and appreciates me for what I am? Warts ‘n all!
Answer these questions honestly at the start of each week and it will set you up for success.
If you need a booster midweek, then by all means read your answers again, or even answer the questions again, whenever you want to feel centred and remind yourself of what you have got going for yourself in your life right now. And you have a lot.
I would love to hear about your experience of writing in your accomplishment diary.
Maybe you need help to begin thinking more positively about yourself. So, if this resonates with you, and you would like to have a conversation about how coaching with me will work, get in touch today and we can arrange to have a chat to begin finding out where you think you are in your life and how I can serve you.
As Sydney Banks says, “ When the mind is filled with positive thoughts, cause and effect rule, resulting in a positive feeling.”
I really look forward to hearing from you soon.
