GIVING MYSELF CREDIT
Sabotaging Thought: I don't deserve credit while I'm still doing bad things.
Helpful Response: It's counterproductive to wait until I'm perfect to give myself credit. I need to strengthen the part of my mind that believes I can do this! I'm only human and will stray from my plan from time to time. When this happens, a sense of helplessness might kick in.
Continually building my confidence by giving myself credit can protect me from feeling helpless and hopeless and giving up.
The process of growing good habits is the hardest part. Once I am finally consistently doing what I need to do, maintaining those habits will be easier.
So I deserve lots of credit now, while my work is the hardest.
