12 Days of Optimism, Day 9: Time
"I promise myself...to give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others."
Sadly many of us spend way too much time judging, criticizing, and comparing others to ourselves. Doing that has two negative impacts on our daily life. First of all by comparing yourself to someone else you are essentially telling yourself that you are not worthy or good enough because you need to find your value by judging someone else. Second, by nature judging and criticizing are negative thoughts about another person. When you are constantly thinking negatively you are putting the vibrations of all your thoughts on a negative wavelength. Therefore you are attracting more negative to your own life. It will become a vicious cycle.
You cannot change the way someone acts, speaks, or thinks. No matter how hard you try you simply cannot. The only person you can work on changing is yourself. So instead of wasting your time trying to improve someone else to what you think they should be, how about working on the most important thing in your life...YOU!
