It is time to take care of yourself. It is time to say ‘No’ to what is hurting you, and ‘Yes’ to what is helping you. You need what is helping you, not what is hurting you.
Reject that voice that is telling you what you cannot do. Reject that voice that is beating you up anytime you make a mistake. Reject that voice that is stopping you from moving forward in life. Reject that voice that is preventing you from taking care of yourself.
Mencius said, “He who attend to his greater self becomes a great man, and he who attends to his smaller self becomes a small man.” That is right. If you want to be successful in life, you have to position yourself in a successful position. If you want to be great, you have to do great things, think in a great way, act in a great way, and live in a great way.
Pay attention to what is helping you closer to your dreams. Stay away from what is hurting you. You could be the one hurting yourself. To check if you are not the one hurting yourself, measure your progress, check where you started, and check where you are now. If there is no progress, check what you are doing wrong. Listen to what you are telling yourself. Check how you are spending your time.
Do not let your inner critic stop you from living your life. Do not let your inner critic stop you from dreaming. If you are not dreaming, you are not living. Even if your inner critic is telling you what you cannot do, go ahead and do it anyway. Do not let your inner critic stop you. Face your inner critic and walk past it.
Your inner critic will always tell you what you cannot do, but do not stop pursuing your dreams. Just acknowledge it, but continue to chase your dreams. If you don’t listen to your inner critic, your dreams are within your reach. Go get them!
