1. When someone compliments you on your outfit, do you say thanks or do you bring up how old it is?
2. When you have an idea, do you go for it or do you talk yourself out of pursuing it?
3. Do you often criticize your appearance?
4. Do you playdown your accomplishments?
5. Is your glass half full or half empty?
If you answered yes you are a victim of ANTS. So how do you get rid of these pesky ANTS that come to steal your joy, that makes you feel unworthy, unpretty, not enough? You get rid of them by Accepting Your Fabulous! Accepting that you are not perfect but you are damn sure worthy of love and respect. You get rid of ANTS by immediately combatting a negative with a positive. Find some positive quotes to post at your work desk so when a negative thought occurs you can read something upliftiing. Create your own positive affirmations. I am beautiful. I am fabulous! Pray. Prayer changes things. When you feel that negative energy building within you, pray. Pray that all negative thoughts, people and energy around you be removed. Pray for peace in your heart, mind and spirit.
So when your co-worker compliments you on your outfit say thank you and keep it moving. When you have an idea, right it down and why it will work. When you are feeling unpretty find one thing about yourself to praise. It can be your looks, your intelligence, the fact that you didn't polish off a whole bottle of wine in one night...IJS. When someone brags about you say thanks and be humble about your achievements. You did that, so be proud! My glass is always half full because I embrace life and I know that everyday won't be perfect but I'm still here. I'm able to live and inspire another woman to chase her dreams. So squash those ANTS and continue to be blessed and fabulous!
