For perfectionists and high achievers, New Year’s resolutions can be a special kind of hell. Sure, everyone breaks their resolutions …but you’re not everybody. You expect more of yourself. You expect greatness. But then when there’s a set-back, a mistake, a back-slide, here comes that inner critic voice, beating you up, grinding you down.
In this workshop you will:
- Find better ways to motivate yourself to keep your resolutions
- Discover how to be driven and goal-oriented while also feeling relaxed and happy
- Learn more about the misconceptions around ambition, compassion, and criticism
- Develop simple and effective ways to change the way you talk to yourself*
*without sounding like a cheesy self-help cliche
New Year’s resolutions do not have to lead to self-criticism and feeling terrible about yourself. Learn to keep your resolutions with kindness instead of criticism.
Break the cycle of never feeling good enough.
