4 Things To Remember When You Think You Are Not Good Enough

We all have our bad days, everything goes wrong, nothing seems to go your way and you are just not feeling good enough. It is on those down days where you feel like you deserve nothing and you don’t love yourself. Some people are lucky to not have those days at all, and some Career Girls, unfortunately, will have it more often than others.

4 Things To Remember When You Think You Are Not Good Enough


In case you’re having a bad day or period, try to always keep these 4 things in mind:

#1 – Everyone compares themselves to other people

If there is one thing all us girls need to stop doing it is comparing ourselves with others. It is probably one of the most hurtful and cruel things we do to ourselves.

Everyone does it, even the most confident and successful persons you know will compare themselves to the people around them.

Instead of comparing yourself to others through a lens of jealousy and judgment, try to look at people for who they actually are without comparing yourself but more as an inspiration or a motivation.

#2 – Don’t believe everything your mind tells you

You are the one that controls your mind and thoughts are just thoughts, but at the same time, they can be very powerful. Whenever you have negative thoughts about yourself, try to sum up all the good things you have done in life, all your achievements and all the journeys you have survived. Positive thinking is positive living!

#3 – Make peace with your past and present so you can have a bright future

Making peace with your past and embracing your present is sometimes a difficult thing to do, yet they are very important. You can never be fully satisfied when there are still negative feelings from the past lingering around you. If you make peace with your past and embrace your present, your journey towards your goal will be more satisfying and peaceful.

#4 – Focus on your progress rather than perfection

Especially when you focus on ”getting everything right” it can lead to ‘down days’ when things are not working out as planned. We all want success and perfection and when that doesn’t happen we feel worthless, which is also a cause of self-loathing.

Focus on the progress rather than perfection and everything will be perfect!

You are good the way you are and self-love is important in your journey as a Career Girl!

    These tips are so crucial – comparison is rife in our industry but each online blog, magazine or publication is unique to their voice and readership!

    Amen! Some awesome tips here. As someone who often lets her mind get the better of her, I sometimes have to tell myself not to listen to my thoughts (which sounds a bit crazy…), and to push myself to be more positive!

  3. Vanessa says

    These tips are so helpful!
    Especially the last one, focus on the progress not the perfection.
    Sometimes we care too much about the reward that we forget what we learnt through the journey.

    The last one is often the only thing that stops me going insane.

    This post couldn’t of came at a better time.

    We’ve really been focusing on our inner-self and how our work depends on this. #2 – Don’t believe everything your mind tells you: is huge for me.

    My mind is always getting the best of me, and with this type of work– it can really damage what you are working on. This was some great inspiration.

    Thank You

    I agree with everything you said girl & we should never compare ourselves to others. The only case we can compare ourselves is to who we were yesterday, to become a better version of ourselves everyday.
