Let me guess, you’re the first person to celebrate other people’s wins. When it comes to celebrating your own success though, it’s an entirely different story.
How do I know?
Because I’ve been there myself. I was the first person to celebrate everybody else’s victories but when it came to my own, they simply weren’t important. Atleast that’s what I’d tell myself.
At my lowest point, every action I took was an epic fail in my mind. I felt worthless and unimportant. I wasn’t good enough! My life was an epic fail.
I used to work for a company selling riser recliner chairs. In the space of just a few days, working part time hours, I earnt the company in the region of £16000. Pretty impressive, right? I didn’t think so, I was just doing my job. Everybody at work made a big deal about it but I just didn’t see it the way they did.
Now I look back at that part of my life and realise that I achieved so much that I didn’t celebrate because my mindset was completely wrong. It was like my brain was wired to focus on the negatives in life and not the positives. I hated myself so much that I couldn’t accept my wins were actually wins and worth celebrating.
So how did I change that?
Once I started to change my negative thought patterns and learnt to value myself and love myself, I actually started to see the positives and celebrate my wins. Some days that was something as simple as completing a task on my to do list or not burning the dinner. Other days it was something bigger like landing a new job.
In the last 6 months I have had a string of achievements that are massively worth celebrating. That in itself is an achievement worth celebrating!
Why am I celebrating?
Because I totally deserve to! I have shifted my mindset in such a way that I can now see the good things in my life and myself. I have realised that I am worth so much more and can achieve so much more than I have ever given myself credit for. I stopped listening to the negative vampires in my head that were sucking the life out of me and started challenging my limiting beliefs. I made time for myself, to be the best possible version of me and rediscover my true self. In the process of this I was also able to find my purpose in life. I completed a mindfulness course, a life coaching diploma and I’m now working on a foundation neuro-linguistic programming certificate with The Coaching Masters. And yes, I have celebrated every single one of those massive achievements!
I can now say, I am a transformation coach who helps overwhelmed mums regain their identity and unleash their inner superpower to live a life they love.
How awesome is that?!
Now I haven’t written this to do the old ‘look at me, I’m so wonderful’ routine. I have written this to make you realise that you’re not alone. There are so many of us that are, or have been, in the exact same position as you. I want you to know that you deserve to live a life you love, one filled with happiness and fulfillment. You CAN have a life you love, you just need to believe in yourself. Regain your identity and unleash your inner superpower.
I did, so can you!
