You can motivate yourself without being mean to yourself.
I’ve been on both sides of the equation. I was the one who said no, and I was the one who felt guilty about saying no.
I also had plenty of people tell me that they were just looking for a way to say no without being mean to them. I don’t think it’s possible to motivate yourself without being mean to yourself, but you can motivate yourself without being mean to yourself. You don’t have to be perfect – but you do have to be honest with yourself.
I’m not saying that if you’re not happy with what your day looks like today, then tomorrow will be better. But if you’re going through a rough patch, it helps if you can identify what’s making it so rough and then figure out how to change things around so that things get better again.
You can motivate yourself by telling yourself stories about how much better things will be once you’ve made these changes. Or maybe telling yourself stories about how much worse things will be once those changes are made and your life starts falling apart around you again.”
