The next time you are alone, take out your phone and record a love letter to yourself. Say out-loud everything that you love about yourself: your ambitions, your purpose, your strengths, ways you are kind, ways you inspire others, etc.
THEN, listen to it.
Listen to it several times over the course of a week. When you do this, you'll notice something incredible.
We often go to external sources for praise, acceptance, and confirmation. To feel okay with our lives, we need other people to tell us how good of a job we did, how awesome we are, and how much they love us.
What if we heard these things from ourselves for a change? Have you ever heard, in your own voice, the praise you are seeking from the outside world?
Even if you do this exercise through writing or meditation, give the recording a try. There is something extremely powerful about hearing praise in your own voice.
Enjoy this challenge,
