Newsletter 22nd March 2023: Don’t do this to yourself 🤔

by | Newsletters


If you’re feeling fed up or disappointed about something, it’s easy to make things ten times worse by piling extra negative meanings on top of what actually happened.

For example, you’re disappointed because your book isn’t selling, or no one is reacting to your Instagram reels.

That’s okay; this kind of thing happens to everyone.

But it’s not okay if you start telling yourself it’s because you suck.

Or that this one thing not working means you’ll never have a successful author career/business.

Don’t do that to yourself.

It’s just not true that one disappointing result (or even ten of them) means you should quit.

In fact it generally just means you haven’t found the right way to do whatever it is you want to do yet!

Instead of piling on the agony ask “what can I try now?”

What do you say to yourself when you’re disappointed?  Are you willing to try a new question instead? 💖
