I had my last & final coaching call with Adi of Frame of Mind Coaching for this phase of my certification. I am so grateful we made a heartfelt connection because I know that our journey might be complete for this round of coaching, but it is not complete as friends & possible future business partners.
One incredible thing I got out of this call was that I have a lot to acknowledge myself for. (Something I often over look.) Over the past 10 weeks a lot has happened & without getting into all the details, I want to share three tips with you on how you can introduce self-acknowledgment into your life on a daily basis.
Find a jar. Cut up strips of paper. Place it beside your bed or altar & make it a point each evening to write down one thing you accomplished that day. It can be anything to closing a big deal at work or finally tackling that mountain of dirty dishes in the sink. Just be sure to do it every night. Make it a habit.
Find a buddy; local or virtual & agree to send an email, text or phone call every evening to share what we have accomplished that day. When you receive the notification be sure to affirm that your buddy did a good job with a 'hell ya!' or 'you go girl!'
(I say do it at night so that you have the whole day to look back on to find one or more things you rocked that day.)
Make a list of five small things each week you want to get done. At the bottom of the least right how you will treat yourself when they are complete. The list should be simple- make the kids a home-made lunch once this week, finish the laundry, make one new friend on Twitter, tell my husband how much I love him and why, plant some new flowers.
Don't make your tasks so difficult you can't complete them- then you are just setting yourself up for failure. At the end of the week, treat yourself if you completed two or more of the tasks. The kinder you are to yourself, the greater your space is for excellence.
So there ya have it. Let's all make an effort to be kinder to ourselves by incorporating acknowledgment into our lives on a daily basis. I know I am!
