As we get into the New Year, how are you feeling about your direction? Are you using negative self-talk to undermine yourself or are you recognizing your strengths, appreciating them and growing?
Tony Schwartz has a few really good points in this article that we can all use.
“Consistently sacrificing yourself to serve others is ultimately no better than focusing solely on yourself at the expense of others.
Selfishness is about making your own gratification paramount. Self-care is about making sure you’re addressing your own most basic needs, so you’re freed and fueled to also add value to others.”
