“Crazy people talk to themselves. Only the truly mad don’t listen.”~ Nike ad from the mid-90s
If you’re having trouble getting out of bed
Because you’re afraid
Of doing something that scares you
Talk to yourself.
Tell yourself a big, tall, fanciful tale
And believe it.
See if this helps:
If you’re about to do something difficult
And you’re too tired, lonely or scared
Tell yourself you’ve already done it.
I know, crazy talk, right?
Picture in your mind having done it
How it feels to complete the task
See yourself telling a friend how you did it
Feeling how proud they are of you
How proud you are of yourself
And watch what happens next.
P.S. Yes, please tell me what happens next. Right here. Reply. It’s just me. Don’t worry, it’s impossible to “reply all.” Your secret is safe. Unless of course, you don’t have time because you’re in the middle of doing that big, scary thing that ain’t so tough anymore 🙏
*If you make yourself the hero, why not write a happier ending? 😀
