It’s easy to get overwhelmed with your ambitions. Most of my friends and colleagues find themselves repeatedly bashing their head against a wall when they think about all that they want to accomplish, yet how far they are from it all. These people all have high goals, strong work ethic, and a burning passion to better themselves, but still feel like they will never reach those goals or be the person that they want to be.
But when you stop for a moment a look back, there is a good chance that you’ve already gotten there.. again.. and again.. and again.
The problem isn’t that you aren’t meeting your goals. The problem is that each time you meet them you immediately raise the bar even higher without taking any time to celebrate the little victories.
Take a minute the next time you start to feel overwhelmed and find 2 things that you once told yourself you would never accomplish that you in fact did.
You’ve come a long way.
