Quote of the Week: “Grit is sticking with your future day in, day out and not just for a week, not just for the month, but for years.” - Angela Duckworth, Professor at University of Pennsylvania
This Week's Power Phrase: “I am gritty. I am passionate and have a clear vision of the life I am building."
When you decide to protect yourself and not to take things personally, you avoid needless suffering. You cannot be hurt by others. Your anger, irritation, jealousy, frustration, and conflicts with others lessen. You are happier and at your best more often.
Quote of the Week: “Quit worrying about what other people think and follow your heart.” —Jack Canfield
This Week's Power Phrase: “I don’t take what other people do or say personally. I decide to protect my confidence and grit.”
Self-compassion is a practice; it is not a switch we can just flip on. Self-compassion is a habit we form by practicing kindness in the moment many times throughout our day. When you are kind to yourself, then you can be kind with others. As the Dalai Lama said, “One must be compassionate to one’s self before external compassion.”
Quote of the Week: “A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day. A string of such moments can change the course of your life.” —Christopher K. Germer
This Week's Power Phrase: “I am kind to myself. I am doing the best I can. I got it next time!”
