Practice Self Compassion

In today’s video, I’m going to talk about the importance of cultivating self-compassion, or being kind to yourself when you’d otherwise be your own worst enemy.

We all make mistakes from time to time - it’s inevitable. It turns out that even thriving companies experience loads of failure, but they do one thing very differently. They learn from it and move on.

When I was a kid, my mom taught me the golden rule: “Do to others only that which you would want done to yourself.”

Now, seeing that I used to treat my friends and coworkers better than I would treat myself, I’ve taken to heart the diamond rule: “Do to yourself only that which you would want done to others.”

How do you speak to others when they make a mistake? How do you speak to yourself? Notice these differences and start removing any psychological blocks of unkindness that you deliver to yourself. Your company, family, and society will thank you for it.
