Welcome to Lesson 7 of the Creating Long-Term Habits Challenge.
In this lesson, we talk about useful components for missteps:
- Two important components: Self-compassion and Learning from Missteps
- It is hard to learn from the missteps when you feeling judgmental and discouraged.
- Self-compassion is recognizing difficulties. Acknowledging them.
- Accepting the suffering.
- Compassion comes from the heart, for ourselves and for others.
- Same things that we wish for our loved ones, we can wish them for ourselves.
- When you are beating yourself up, pause for a moment, wish yourself peace, calmness, well-being.
- You will feel a bit more spaciousness and a little less burden.
- Than we can learn from missteps.
- We can clarify where are we right now, where is the stuck-point, what can we do differently.
- Self-compassion is the first step. Then bring in the learning.
- Add it to the plan, tell people about it, use reminders and then slowly it will get better.
- By giving ourselves compassion we will be more committed, we’ll deepen to that commitment and we will be better at creating the plan.
- Not being perfect but having some kind of grace.
- We have to accept that we will have some missteps and when it happens we can learn from it.
- Practice if you are having some missteps.
- Practice self-compassion.
