2-23-17… Don’t Should On Yourself…


Don’t should on yourself.

Do you should on yourself?  What do I mean by that?  Do you get way down on yourself if you don’t do something you ‘should’ do?  The other day I had a conversation with a member who was shaming herself for ‘falling off the wagon.’  Guys and gals, we are all human.  We are not perfect.  In fact, we are perfectly imperfect.  Sometimes we fall off.  It doesn’t make you a bad person.  It doesn’t mean you’re a failure in life.  All it means is that you made a few choices that moved you a bit away from your goals.  In the grand scheme of things, if you continue to make most of your choices moving you towards your goals you will still come out on top.

Now you do pay us to hold you accountable, and we will talk with you about it, but when we do hold you accountable, you’re not in trouble.  We genuinely care about you, and want to see you succeed.  So if you slip, or mess up, don’t should on yourself.  Don’t get so down on yourself because you ‘should’ve done this or that,’ just start again tomorrow.  It’s a new day, and if you start stringing those days together, you’ll be successful!
