I love this quote and have used it to head up the last chapter in my book on eating disorder recovery titled, Moving Forward. To me it gives a strong message of the need to do anything but sit still.
It’s very easy to criticize yourself and others. But it’s not helpful. Instead learn to admire and be grateful for the things you and others do well. By focusing on the positive, we set goals, move forward and become the best possible version of ourselves. So let’s take the ADMIRE challenge.
Acknowledge what you and others do well
Discover the ways you can continue to grow
Master the oppurtunities
Insight is important
Recognise, respect and take responsibility for your abilities
Encourage yourself and develop confidence as you communicate with others
