Always act like you’re wearing an invisible crown. -Unknown
When we give so much from ourselves to our work it’s really important to do our best. No matter what other people think of your creation, it’s so important to celebrate your labors and creativity. Part of creativity is that we usually get better with more practice and experience. Each project you do will usually be better than the previous one. It’s not about perfecting anything—it’s about getting better.
Goal: No matter how you feel, don’t forget to recognize your hard work, perseverance, and creativity.
Sometimes you have to lie. But to yourself you must always tell the truth. -Louise Fitzhugh
Don’t feel bad when you make a mistake because it’s in the past and you definitely can’t go back in time to fix it. But if you aren’t honest with yourself about your mistake then you’ve done something wrong. We are all just going through this life together, learning as we go, but it’s so important to admit when you’ve done something wrong, even if it was an accident. Just apologize, own it, move on, and free yourself.
Goal: Apologize to someone for a recent mistake you have made, no matter how big or small.
Too many times people will say sorry for things that they really don’t need to apologize for. We all do it. When we startle someone, or when someone bumps into you, we say sorry when it wasn’t our fault. We are just trying to be polite. But what you are actually doing is telling yourself that you’re not worthy of standing right where you are! You deserve your place on earth, wherever that may be.
Goal:Be proud of where you are today and how far you’ve come on your journey. You are exactly where you are supposed to be.
