7. Look at how far you’ve come.
It’s so easy to take ourselves for granted, especially if you have perfectionistic tendencies. When you’re your own worst critic and only reward yourself for major accomplishments, it makes it rather difficult to accept who you are. As a result, you end up averting your attention to the people you want to be. Take a look at how far you’ve come instead. Who you are today is not who you were ten years ago. Just because you still have a lot of goals and dreams you want to achieve, doesn’t mean there wasn’t any substantial progress made. Give yourself the credit you deserve. Celebrate the good moments, even the small ones.
