Self-Compassion - Anna Vital


A lot of on this infographic is about how you relate to other people:

  • Surrounding yourself with people who want you to succeed! Remember, you don't have to always stand alone!
  • Although sometimes you'll have to when your opinion isn't shared by the group. But don't be afraid to stand up for what you believe in.
  • Try not to compare yourself with others and their lives. It's like comparing apples and oranges: they just aren't the same.
  • When other people give your criticism, try to learn from it and become a better person. They are not usually saying these things to bring you down.

Other important points:

  • Learn from your mistakes! There's no right way to do anything in life, so why not give it a try?
  • Don't be so hard on yourself about your past. Learn what you can from it, make goals and move on.
  • Anger and weaknesses can be turned into strong and productive motivators.
  • They say it takes 10,000 hours to learn a new skill (Mr. Kaufman claims otherwise), so try, try again.
