Monday Mantra:: I Take My Own Advice (with a twist)

Monday-Mantra-I-take-my-own-advice

This one is a repeat with a twist. For the last version of this mantra, you can read it here.

Today’s version is slightly different view-point.

What value we place on ourselves is so very important. It is one thing to know how valuable you are but it can be a totally different thing when we look outside ourselves.

Let me give you an example. A client of mine knows the sessions she provides are worth more than $100 per hour. That’s why they are charged at much more than that. Yet, she allows other people to dictate to how much those sessions are worth by the hourly rate the business owner pays her. So in a round about way, she’s taking their advice on what her sessions are worth, not her own advice of what her sessions are worth.

Here’s another way it manifests.

You see a great bag, pair of shoes, new piece of technology you love. You buy it because you love it. You carry it carefully around with you, showing it off because you love it so much. The you show a friend and say “hey – look at this great new handbag I bought” only to be met with “oh, it’s okay I guess.”. Suddenly you feel awkward, like you may have made the wrong choice because your st friend doesn’t like it and you always love the same stuff. Why does someone else’s opinion matter more or have more weight than that of your own?

Try listening and taking your own advice about what you love, about what looks good, about what you’re worth and focussing on that this week and feel how much more confident you feel.

Follow your own intuition, your inner guidance. Take your own advice.

As always, download and save this Monday Mantra Image to your desktop or phone or print it and pin it somewhere you’ll see it. When you see it, say it. And if you know someone who would also benefit from this mantra, please share it.
