We want everything now; happiness now, success now, health now, love now.
Not surprisingly, this is the way we approach our goals and life changes as well. Patience is hard to come by: we expect results now, and if we haven’t reached our goal yet, it must be because we’re not working hard enough or fast enough or we’re lazy and undisciplined.
The happiest and most successful people will tell you that they have achieved their level of life and work success by taking small steps, and making one positive choice after another.
It’s time to switch up the stale notion of what being successful looks like.
Maybe success for you looks like being able to make time for self-care, showing up for that zoom call or making it through a tough day at work. Bottom line is, it’s all up to you to decide.
Just work towards one mini-victory at time and make sure you celebrate each achievement in some small way. A little success goes a long way in propelling us to the finish line.
