Big goals have a way of taking for-e-ver.
There are so many complicated tactics involved, so many people to line up, and so many hours of the grind. And after all the work, sometimes it still seems like we’re getting nowhere.
Some get beat down and take the nearest exit while others stay the course until they get what they want.
What allows one person to keep going while the other one taps out?
It’s in the way they view their current situation.
The person that taps out looks at how far they have to go while the one that stays to win looks back and recognizes progress.
Can you see which approach would be more energizing?
With every step, you make progress. And every day, you get closer to where you want to be. So while you’re out there working your butt off, pause… Don’t rest too long, but look back and see how your little steps have added up!
