How do you end the year confidently?So December is here, again. As the year is drawing to an end, you could be thinking another year is passing soon and you have many goals not accomplished. And the more you look at your checklist, the more you feel overwhelmed by the self-inflicting blame and you hear yourself saying.. “you procrastinate too much” “why can’t you get all the things done” “look at how many things still outstanding” “why can’t you get it right?” “you didn’t lose that 10kg” “you didn’t get that promotion” “you didn’t make that much money you said you want to make” No matter how much you’ve accomplished, there was more waiting to be done. No matter how much you’ve done, you were never good enough. Why do you think many high achievers often feel not good enough no matter how much they have accomplished? Having worked with this group of people, I noticed two common practices that ripped them off their confidence.
- They would generously blame themselves for the FEW things not done, and stingily acknowledging themselves for ALL the things they have accomplished.
- They would blow up the mistakes they did and dismiss the things they did right. As if, success is a given. But failure is a big No No.
