1. Turn your inner voice up
Turn it up REAL LOUD! Listen to your own thoughts and your own feeling on matters. Dull the chattering voices, you don’t need to look to others to hear what have to say. It’s time to start looking within. The voice is there, it may be quiet, you just need to practice listening to it, this may take time, but honestly practice listening, it will get louder the more you listen. xx
2. Don’t compare yourself with others
It’s really easy to get caught up other peoples successes, The problem with comparison it that is you start to doubt yourself; and you start to pick yourself apart. They are them you are you. Don’t sell yourself short by comparing yourself to them.
3. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover
Be respectful to everyone you meet. You can not possibly know someone from a 2 minute encounter. You can not assume they are not worthy of your time because they are different to you; or people that you normally spend time with. You never know, this person may be in your life to teach you something, or you may have just met a new friend.
4. Activley practice Self Care
Self-care covers a broad range of behaviours and activities, designed to enhance and nurture your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
Self care means different things to different people. There is no set formula of what you “should” be doing in order to take care of yourself. The only ‘should’ about these activities is that they be things that you engage in regularly and that they edify and lift you up! – Read more about Self Care here
5. BE YOU BE YOU BE YOU!!
I honestly believe this is THE MOST important point. Be Honest, Be Real! Whatever you do don’t try to be someone else. Humans have a great inbuilt bullshit detector and it comes off as insincere.- That’s why it’s easier to just be You! And once you really settle into being you and listening to your own voice, people will be drawn to you because you will be comfortable in your own skin.
