Often times we call ourselves out on what we didn’t do. It’s time to start pointing out what we do, especially when these actions are steps towards our goals. I can sit and dwell about how I was out of the gym for a week due circumstances. What I should be dwelling on is the fact that I got back in the gym and did not let a setback stop me from reaching to grasp my dreams.
I could have said it wasn’t worth it to go back and begin a few steps behind, but instead I moved past the setback, used it as a stepping stone, and overcame my difficulties.
A quote I have hung up both at work and at home is, “Life presents us with a new opportunity every day. Learn from both your mistakes and accomplishments to help build a better future for yourself today”. I try to live my life according to this quote so I don’t catch myself in a state of dwelling where I will not accomplish anything.
Continuing to learn and grow from each chapter of your life is the key to success and happiness; giving up on yourself is not. Remember to thank yourself for every accomplishment whether big or small!
