I wanted to summarize the Gremlin voting everyone did last week. For all of you that voted it seems many of us have a self-doubt Gremlin living in us. You were allowed to vote for more than one, thus the weird %, but here is the summary.
The Artist Gremlin was 87%, The Big Shot was 67% and the General 3rd at 42%. If you remember the lines these little monsters use they were - you are nothing, you will never be good enough, and you have to do everything right. 16/19 votes for these Gremlin's. That meanat 84% of the survey participants have a self-doubt issue. Sounds like many of us need to have a goal this year of increasing our self-esteem and understand that Gremlin so he/she has no control over you again.
I gave you a few ideas on how to do this, but the best thing you can do is stay focused and pay attention. Focus on the positive you, 365 days a year stay positive. Along with focus, pay attention to your words, actions, behaviors, feelings and emotions. Are they Gremlin filled or are they healthy?
I will remind you to review your Gremlin's later this year when you least expect it. No, I want you to keep them in mind, every day. It is the only way to tame them and escort them out the door.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I know people that are at the Olympics, went fishing, hung out with friends, went to a resort in Duluth area, worked, hauled wood, and recovered from surgery. To all of you, I hope your weekend was memorable and rewarding. Remember to hug someone today.
