When I was much younger, my friends and family used to tell me I’m way too serious or I set standards that are too high. That was nice way of saying loosen up a little girl. My reply always sounded something like this: “I don’t need anything that does not move me in the direction of my life’s goal.”
I love inspirational quotes about setting goals. I say set goals that draw you forward. If a goal is too ambitious, split it into several mini-goals. At each mini-victory, give yourself a small reward to celebrate. This maintains your motivation and your confidence in your abilities.
Use positive affirmations throughout the day to instill self-confidence, positive thoughts and feelings. For my part, when I work at home, I play subliminal music on self-confidence, efficiency, success, wealth, etc.
