People who reach their potential spend more time asking, “What am I doing well?” rather than, “What am I doing wrong?”—John Maxwell
So often we spend time comparing ourselves to others or focusing on our mistakes or our shortcomings instead of focusing on what’s right and the progress we have made. Many of us set BIG goals for ourselves and that’s as it should be because we are all capable of accomplishing great things. But it can be discouraging if all we do is look forward toward our goal noticing how much work lies ahead instead of occasionally looking behind us at how far we’re come and what has been accomplished along the way.
Take the time to dream big, make plans, start your journey one step at a time, celebrate your accomplishments along the way and keep putting one foot in front of the other on your way to the life of your dreams. But please don’t forget to live the life of your dreams along the way. Each day is a gift. Imagine how your life would be if everything you forgot to be grateful for were taken away! Is there something you want to be grateful for right now?
