Many years ago I was doing a consult with a potential client.
I asked her about the end result she wanted to achieve.
She told me she wanted to be her own best friend.
At first I thought that was a bit “fluffy.”
Then I realized how wrong I was and how valuable it is to be your own best friend …
- Become your own best friend, so you can have your own back.
- Become your own best friend, so you talk to yourself the way you would talk to your best friend … with love, kindness, and frankness. (hint: this is being compassionate with yourself).
- Become your own best friend so you have someone you enjoy spending time with. Yes, enjoy spending time with yourself.
We’ve been culturally programmed to beat the crap out of ourselves in order to achieve.
My friend, we’ve been taught wrong.
- Become your own best friend, so you can be motivated to pursue your goals.
- Become your own best friend, so you have confidence in yourself.
- Become your own best friend, so you tell yourself the truth and cultivate a trusting relationship with you.
Your relationship with you is the foundation to all of your relationships.
Be your own best friend, so the best version of you can show up in your life.
