Take out your Mantra Sheet that you filled out during the last call. You’ll be adding to it. If you need another one, go ahead and print it again, and — this is important — fill in your final mantra from last time.

The gift here is to integrate all parts of you, so that your thoughts, feelings and actions are aligned. I call this “internal integrity.” When done well, it’s done with grace and poise.
Criticizing — yourself or others — doesn’t really go well. It’s different and more painful than constructive feedback, which has kindness in it!
Criticism zaps your motivation because you may feel doomed to fail, and when done to others, can push them away. And we most often do this with those we most need in our lives.

This is what makes change easy!
