    Those are really all great tips especially meditating. I need to meditate a lot more. I don’t put myself down but sometimes I don’t believe in myself enough. Time to stop doubting me.

      I’m glad you found this post valuable, Amanda. Well doubting and not believing in yourself is a form of putting yourself down. Definitely time to stop it. :-) Thanks for dropping by.

    Focus is really important in reaching your goals. You really need to take it a step at a time and learn to appreciate the little milestones.

    I think I do have some traits of self-sabotage! It is needed that we learn to be focused and celebrate the achievements of small goals to move ahead towards bigger ones.

    Reward yourself too! Not with big stuff, but with a pat on your back when you accomplished something! It will help in the long run!

    • http://www.petezafra.com Pj Zafra

      The smallest things always make the biggest differences. A simple pat on the back goes a long way. We have to be proud of ourselves and our accomplishments.

    Beautiful reminder! That’s all so true, it’s tough when you’re the one causing blocking yourself from success because more often than not, we’re not aware that we’re doing it.

      I’m glad you found this post valuable, Mai. :-)

    #2 is the most important reminder. We usually think we are not good enough (well, at least most of us). As long as we know we did our very best, we should be confident for its success. – Fred

    • http://www.petezafra.com Pj Zafra

      I agree with you Fred. One of my mentors, Art Williams, said “All you can do is all you can do, however, all you can do is enough.”. As long as we give 100%, we should be proud. If it didn’t work out, now we have become wiser because we’ve learned one more way that does not work. On to the next step.

    Success or failure or love or celebration or depression – its all in our own hands…

    • http://www.petezafra.com Pj Zafra

      True! How we react to things…it’s all on us.

  • Maerose JS

    I love the last tip and it’s usually what I do. The first four are easier said than done, to be honest! ;) Good luck and cheers to the bright future we all deserve!

    • http://www.petezafra.com Pj Zafra

      Oh nothing worth having in life ever comes easy. I’m fully aware that it’s easier said than done but I would rather share the truth rather than share your typical broad tips. lol

      Good luck and more power to you! :-)

  • Pushkal Pandey

    That is some real good piece if writing. I agree with all the 5 points. Your believes in yourself creates path to your destiny.

    Agree, everything is in our hand. We must choose happiness and move on with life no matter how many obstacles we might face.

    • http://www.petezafra.com Pj Zafra

      Yes, very true Kelly. We have more control over our lives than we realize.

  • TweenselMom

    Thanks for all these reminders. Putting yourself down really doesn’t help and celebrating small accomplishments will do perfect for me.

    Yes to all 5 but more importantly, #4! We need to get off our butts and work hard. If we’re too comfortable, that’s when things go down.

    • http://www.petezafra.com Pj Zafra

      Nothing good ever comes from settling. We need to constantly grow.

  • Rochkirstin Santos

    Thanks for these reminders. Actually I really need to focus now on what I have to do and keep a more positive mindset to block off negative thoughts.

    • http://www.petezafra.com Pj Zafra

      You’re very much welcome. I’m glad this post helped you out.

      What helped me a lot is I started reading more books that spread positive energy. It also helps that having a positive mindset does not mean that you don’t have any negative thoughts at all. It simply means that when negative thoughts arise, you don’t let those thoughts take over your life.
