After speaking with one of my colleagues today about her career and life in general, I knew I had to rush home and make this little audio for you. She’d be struggling for a while to transition into a new career and had pretty much written off every finding another job.
I am incredibly guilty of this, but if I have an idea, I will instantly jump in and list more than a handful of reasons why something won’t work. I don’t even consider the good points or the possibilities (which is really sad!). This is something I’m working hard at every day, but it’s no walk in the park. My incredible husband has helped a lot with this, which I talk about a little in the audio.
- don’t automatically jump straight to the negatives- start by consciously listing the positives first. What’s the best that could happen?
- after you’ve done this, it’s pretty hard to focus so firmly on the negatives
- ask someone to keep you in check
- keep at it (this one is definitely taking me some work!)
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this- do you jump to the negative or the positive first? Share below!
Lots of love, Katie xxx
