We, Coaches, appreciate each and everyone of you.
Our weekly Whole Life Challenge this week is all about showing our appreciation. The instructions are simple:
I particularly love the third instruction, write down one thing you appreciate about yourself. It is very easy for us to say lovely and nice things about other people, but the stories we tell ourself, about ourself, are terrible. I hear all too often, "Yeah, but," or "I'm so," and "I didn't/can't." STOP IT! One of my favorite things to do in class is to encourage people to say something positive to the person beside them, and then REPEAT what you just said TO YOURSELF.
Showing our appreciation is about acknowledging the things about you and others that you want to see more of in yourself, them, and the world. The Whole Life Challenge folks believe that "the more you tell your brain you see these positive things, the more your brain will get accustomed to noticing them. And the more you notice and appreciate, the more you begin to experience your thoughts as kinder, yourself as more accepting, and your life as being full of things to be grateful for."
Tell us in the comments what you appreciate.
