Shining a light onto yourself, saying uplifting encouraging words to yourself every day, seeing yourself in a positive way is an act of self-love and it will change your life.
Make 2019 your year of shining your light on you. Give yourself credit for your accomplishments, let go of criticism and being hard on yourself for what you haven’t accomplished, or for mistakes you’ve made, and give yourself a break. Change it all around with a daily pep talk to yourself.
It’s very easy to give someone else a pep talk, to praise someone for a job well done, for accomplishing something, and most of us don’t even think about it twice – hey, that’s great I knew you could do it. So proud of you. Job well done…But, we don’t think of showering ourselves with the same words of praise. – Yeeeaaaahhhh!!! I got this…I did it…So proud of myself…We hide away and shy away from our own self.
Giving yourself a pep talk will transform how you feel. It will elevate you and uplift you and encourage you. If it feels strange to talk to yourself in that way, one option is to say it to yourself in the third person, in other words talk to yourself as if you would to someone else.
If you’re in a position of a leader, when you’re leading from a good place, from a place where you yourself feel what you’re trying to lead – your pep talk to staff will have that much greater an impact on them.
So, in 2019 make it a habit to give yourself a daily pep talk, because you as much as anyone, needs to hear your own “pep talk” words.
If you’re already giving yourself a daily pep talk, I’d love it if you shared it with us here in the comments bellow.

You’re so right, it can come easily for a lot of us to give those kinds of words of encouragement to others, but far less easy or common to give ourselves a pet talk or pat ourselves on the back when it’s deserved. Such a fantastic ‘resolution’ to make for the New Year as that really could have such a positive impact on our sense of worth, self-esteem, resiliency… Wonderful post, Masha! 🌷
