In our pursuit of self-improvement, it’s easy to focus on what’s not working. We are bombarded with messages to eat better, lose weight, get fit, be more productive, and optimize everything.

What's Working Well?

While the desire for growth is good, being obsessed with self-improvement can have negative consequences. It causes us to dwell on everything “wrong” in our lives.

Rather than focusing solely on what’s broken, it’s essential to acknowledge what’s working well.

What if we decided to maximize our strengths instead of obsessing over our weaknesses? Can you name areas of your life that are going well?

We must appreciate the positive things while working on areas that need improvement. Remember that there is room for both self-improvement and self-appreciation.
