In this blog post, I’d like to share with you 6 powerful ways to take care of yourself.
Loving yourself is the highest form of mental attitude, that because you’re going to live your life with abundance and prosperity.
Lacking of such incredible intangible is a total failure in life, and that’s why you’re falling behind.
All those nagging thoughts, limiting beliefs or your tendancy to prove other they’re wrong, all this stems from a place of scarcity, and self-oppression.
When you’re feeling good about yourself, you don’t need any external motivation, or approval to take any given decision, and that’s its totally freeing.
Why people are afraid to do public speaking, or even to get their face out in social media? The main reason is because they’re too caught up on how people would think about them, and that’s it’s a low self-esteem.
Self-love spawns with self-image, how you see yourself as huge impact on how you’ll act, and how you’ll behave.
So let’s dive on the 6 powerful ways to take care of yourself to be happier and fulfilled:
Act of self-love #1: forgive yourself
If you’re constantly saying nasty stuff about yourself when things don’t work out, you need to STOP.
You’ll remain the same negative pattern of thinking that’s will change anything.
You can expect different results and doing the same thing. It’s called insanity.
Start dissociates yourself from whatever this things that make you in an awful state, and know that you’re not the problem. It’s just didn’t work out.
You can use positive affirmations to remold your thinking, and get rid form the mind weeds and this will help a lot to forgive yourself.

Act of self-love #2: Nurture self-compassion
Let’s first define compassion. Compassion is a feeling of sympathy towards others, and you can develop the same feeling toward yourself.
Meaning whenever you feel sad, anxious or any unpleasant emotion, be humble, set your ego aside, and give yourself some love.
One of the reasons why keep oppressing ourselves, is because we are too egoistical. We don’t want to recognize our feelings, so we keep ourselves in non-ending cycle loop of self-oppression, and beating ourselves up.
Act of self-love #3: Stop beating yourself up
Messiness is part of the human’s nature. It’s ok to miss things up, or to make a mistake.
We are not born to be perfect. Nature is perfect, your body is perfect, but our behaviors are not, and that’s part of life.
When things don’t go your way, or you feel like you’re a failure, snap yourself , and instantly render your thinking and find out a new way of doing things to get yourself of the emotional turmoil.
Complaining, yelling, pointing fingers at others will never solve the problem. All your energy will go away, and you’ll feel more weak, and fragile.
Our feelings whether they’re good or bad, provide us messages, and our tendency to ignore them is what makes us slave to them.
Act of self-love #4: See failure as opportunities
Our thinking plays a major role on how we see the outer world and everything that’s happening to us.
If you set some goals, and somehow you didn’t reach them, you’ve two choices:
- The first choice is to beat yourself up, and trip up, why things wouldn’t work out for me.
- The second choice is to remain calm, render your thinking, get yourself out of negative state, find solutions, and move on.
We all fail at certain point of our life. But successful and loving people learn the lesson and move on. No room of negative energy.
Act of self-love #5: Reward yourself
Giving credit to yourself is the ultimate cure to self-doubt, and self-oppression.
Why wouldn’t you gift yourself whenever you accomplish something great?
Rewarding yourself is a way to communicate with yourself in a loving way, and that’s will give more strengthen to cope with upcoming hardships.
Act of self-love #6: Cultivate a winner mindset
Your mindset is a pivotal component if you want to take care of yourself.
If you don’t have a positive expectancy that you will achieve your aims, moving yourself towards them, is going to be really harmful. From that, you’ll lose your drive, your motivation, and you’ll start beating yourself up all day long time.
