But sometimes we are not our own best friends - are we?
So today - I want to gently introduce you to a powerful tool for you to hold in your own personal tool-kit.
YOUR STOP DOING LIST
Now what I don't want you to do is jump right on in and start making a huge list to beat yourself up with - this is about being your own best friend, remember?
Instead this is a list - on which you are going to place ONE item. This item is going to be the one most important thing that if you stopped doing it would take you a massive way towards your dream life.
- My beloved lady stopped buying a snack bar every time she filled the car with gas - and lost 10lbs over a year.
- My old college room-mate stopped drinking alcohol, saved his marriage, his relationship with his kids and probably his life.
- I stopped "buying in" to a toxic friends "pity-party-for-one" on the phone every week because I realised he gave me such a downer it tooks me days to recover.
- My Pop - well he stopped snoozing after dinner and started walking around the neighbourhood and what doya know - hes an 90 year old with a string of younger lady friends now!!!
So what ONE thing would you tell yourself to stop doing if you were your very own best friend???
