I have 2 very good reasons why I want you to take the time to make an achievements list.
1. It will give you a massive boost to your self-worth and self-value
2. It will help you realize where your strengths are.
If you’ve ever said anything along the lines of…
- I’m not good enough
- I don’t know enough
- I can’t..
- I’m not worth…
The value you put on yourself is important. And through my coaching work I know that people are very good and undervaluing themselves.
When you take the time to write down all of you achievements to date and then commit to adding to that list, you are continually improving your self -worth.
Self-worth is not about how much money you have in the bank, it’s about how much you value yourself.
I recently spoke to a woman with let’s just say a healthy amount of years behind her. She had raised 3 children as a single mum for many years, managed her home, held down various jobs and at one time when her kids were young 3 different jobs at the same time to bring in enough money to pay the bills and still be there for her kids as they were growing up.
This lovely lady with so much life experience felt she had nothing to offer. Doing this exercise showed her just how much value she had to offer the world.
With just a little guidance, she was able to see how valuable she really is.
What I’d really love you to be doing is adding something to your achievement list every day.
At the end of every day, I write in my journal. I ask “What have I achieved today?” and I write something. I have a page to view diary and I try to fill the page every day.
For me, this will be things like…
Added a new blog post, created a new course module, published a new ebook, helped members on my course… (more work related things), achieved over 10,000 steps, spent time with mum, cooked a nice meal…
I know the things that are important to me in my life, such as spending time with my mum, switching off and just being with my son, my business…
So the things I tend to add are the achievements that are really important to me.
But I have to tell you when I first started my daily achievements journalling I would regularly add things like.
Cooked a meal without burning it 🙂
Got a like on Facebook
Got to bed before 10pm
That’s would be it some days. I made it a priority to write something, anything. Gradually I started having more and more to add. More things that really mattered to me.
When you do things like this on a daily basis, your subconscious mind knows you’re going to be asking that question “What have I achieved today?” and your subconscious mind and the law of attraction get to work to give you something to add in your achievements journal.
Pretty awesome right?
Give it a go and let me know how you get on.
