Growth is really important to me and I’m becoming more and more aware of my flaws. Sometimes certain situations or reflecting on the past makes you want to become a better person. Its really bloody hard admitting that theres certain aspects of yourself that need some work or need changing but once you do, you’re one step closer to bettering yourself.
Without being too hard on myself I wrote down a few things that I would like to change as I believe it will impact my personal growth positively. Here goes lol..
Stop Saying Yes
I tend to think I’m a robot who can do everything. I want to work hard, see my mates, go on work brunch meetings and all the stuff in between, but I’m human and I can’t. I tend to say yes to please people, mainly my management and in the long run I end up unmotivated, tired and also pretty unwell. I don’t have to go to 10 meetings a week to be successful and my friends won’t hate me if I can’t make dinner. Obviously finding a work/life balance is important but lets face it, I can’t say yes to everything.
Idle gossip and talking about other peoples downfalls is unproductive. Rumours are just that – rumours and I need to stop being sucked into that dark hole. I’ve been gossiped about and rumours have been spread about me before, & it was really difficult for me so I know what it feels like. I’m making a conscious choice to talk about others positively, or don’t talk about them at all.
Appreciate What I Have
I constantly want more, constantly have to replace something simply because I can afford it and its just a little ridiculous. I moan about the silliest things when I should honestly realise how blessed and lucky I am. Whether I’m comparing myself to others, splurging on stuff I don’t need or trying to justify the fact I need a brand new Audi which I won’t ever drive, I need to slap myself out of it and appreciate what I have right now.
