Thoughts are things, and self pity is one of those insidious, repulsive habits.
Yet it’s tempting, isn’t it?
It’s one of those bizarre pleasures that takes us back to being a kid again. That moment when you moan “poor me”, and ironically, that’s what actually happens.
That word “poor” suddenly has two meanings. Not only is your mindset in sad shape, but you end up repelling the very clients you’re meant to be serving.
After all, who wants to work with someone who has a negative attitude?
Yikes! It’s enough to send even the most fitting potential client running for help elsewhere.
So let’s shift that, shall we? Let’s start with the following thoughts:
- How bad is it really? Take a moment to imagine other people in the world that have it a whole lot worse than you do. (Yep, they’re out there.) In fact, volunteering with people who are needy can do a world of good for them and for your own perception of your life.)
- Who in your world are you NOT helping because you’re too preoccupied with your own issues? Focus on THEM and who they are to start attracting them to you.
- What are you NOT being grateful for? Truly, there must be something or someone – that you can feel positive about.
- If you don’t believe me, watch the movie: “It’s A Wonderful Life”. It might bring a tear to your eye and a smile to your face (and renewed hope that you really DO have it pretty darn good).
The bottom line is: It’s time to pull your mind out of the proverbial pity party gutter, and get back to being the fabulous, incredibly talented and powerful human that you are.
Then, you will be living the life you love, and serving the clients that love you back.
