Manufacturing Leadership Training Overachievers

Happy Friday!

Did you know that women doubt themselves more than men?

Of course I know men who doubt themselves as well but they a) don’t admit it as easily and b) they generally have a better level of confidence. Their self-image is better.

Honestly, I still doubt myself more than I would like to BUT I have some strategies that help me to crawl out of that dark place.

Would you like to know what I do?

I have collected some mental strategies that work for me and depending on the situation and how much time I have, I choose one or a few of them:

  • Notice how I feel and shift my attention to something positive.
  • Get into a short breath awareness meditation
  • Go for a short walk / run.
  • Watch an inspirational video that reminds me why I do what I do.
  • Look for inspirational quotes and pick one that speaks to me at that moment. Then I evaluate how this applies to my life.
  • Read my endorsements on LinkedIn and/or my google reviews.
  • If I don’t get a new client, I tell myself: “Everything happens for a reason. I haven’t been rejected, I have been redirected. Something better and bigger is just around the corner.”
  • I always tell myself, “There is no failure – only feedback about what works and what doesn’t”. Reframing is an awesome strategy.
  • Remind myself that worry is like a rocking chair – it doesn’t move me forward. Action does.
  • Write down 3 actions I could set to get myself out of this funky and non-productive headspace.
  • Speak to someone.
  • Ask for help.
  • Create a mind map to come up with new ideas.
  • Learn something new.
  • Turn on some of my favourite music and dance to the tunes.

Just recently I have started a success/gratefulness diary. This is another great tool to build brain reference to successes and all the things I can be grateful for in my life. I can read them whenever I feel “down”.

Our brain’s “default operation system” usually goes to all the things that went wrong in the past. That’s why I make a conscious effort to “overwrite” negative events with all my successes along the way.

You are where you are for a reason. Give yourself some credit, some self-acknowledgement and some self-love. It probably took a lot of effort and hard work.

Over-achievers (and I am one of them) aren’t very good acknowledging their progress but sometimes it is just feels good to stop and think how far you have come.

Here is a high-five from me to you.

It’s important to enjoy the journey. Isn’t this what it is all about?
