💁🏽‍♀️Are you ready to release your potential but feel like something is holding you back, hopefully these quick smart tips can help you out👇🏾💫Be honest with yourself about your skills and abilities. Most of us underestimate how many things we do well. Figure out your skills & abilities, and look for ways to incorporate them into your life & work.

💫Listen to compliments. Use the feedback to help you identify your strengths and abilities. If it’s tough for you to recognize your strengths on your own, let others help you.

💫Exercise at least 3-4 times a week for 20-30 minutes. Exercise gives you more positive energy, dissipates negative energy and builds your confidence.

💫Realize that you were given certain gifts, talents and abilities for a reason. You are supposed to use them!

💫Watch out for self-sabotage. Sometimes, it’s easy to believe that success & happiness are meant for other people, not for us. Thus, we do activities that keep us from being successful (we procrastinate on positive tasks, we stay in negative relationships that bring us down, we develop addictions, etc.) Are you self-sabotaging?🤷🏽‍♀️

Monday Night Thoughts

Qualities which are inherent within each and every human being are the ability to maintain hope in spite of circumstances, to be dignified in suffering or discomfort, and to know that all difficulties are impermanent.

These qualities allow us to be more accepting of current difficulties, and when cultivated, can allow us to transcend and even transmute our suffering, resulting in greater compassion for ourselves and others.

Have a good night!
