Give Yourself Credit

Beginning today, start giving yourself credit for your accomplishments.

At the end of each day, either in your current journal, or in a separate accomplishment journal, write down at least three things you accomplished, deserve credit for doing, or deserve credit for not doing.

They can be anything, for example:

  • I ate three balanced meals instead of fast food.
  • I went outside and took a walk instead of playing computer games.
  • I made the dentist appointment I've been putting off.
  • I learned how to do something new.

We tend to beat ourselves over the head about the things we haven't accomplished. So let's start giving ourselves credit where credit is due!
