The Role of our Own Best Friend

The Role of our Own Best Friend

Powerful Paragraph

Your best friend comes to you and says, “I just don’t think I can achieve my goal. I’m not good enough.” What’s your first response? If you’re like most people, your first response is likely to counter them. Let them know that they are more than enough, that they are perfectly capable of chasing and achieving their dreams. Right? Yet, we often hesitate to do this exact thing for ourselves. Instead, we are quick to sound just like our friend, doubtful and critical of ourselves. When this happens, it’s important to put ourselves in the role of our own best friend, and give ourselves the credit and encouragement we deserve.
