We Tell Our Children (2)

We tell our children:

“Always give 100% to everything that you do.”
“Have confidence in yourself.”
“Don’t be so hard on yourself.”
“Don’t settle for just anyone, wait for the right person.”
“You deserve better.”
“Pick your friends wisely.”
“Don’t worry about what other people think.”
“Don’t be a follower, be a leader.”
“Life isn’t always about having fun.”
“If you want something bad enough, I know you will get it.”

The question is, what do we tell ourselves?

Why is it that we can give advice so easily to others, yet we never follow our own words of wisdom? Things that make you go Hmmmmm!

Wise words! Why is it so hard to tell the same things to myself...

Its always easier to give our advice, then it is to follow it. While giving it only requires talk, following it requires action on our behalf. For us to follow our own advice it becomes more difficult as we fight our fears.
