People tend to be goal-oriented. We decide what we want, where we want to be and we focus on it. But sometimes this serves as a detriment. “I am still not where I want to be.” “We are still having to work hard on this.” We get discouraged and are tempted to give up, feeling that we will never reach our destination. What I try to help people remember is that while we do not want to lose sight of our goal, we also have to keep an eye on where we have been. It is so important to acknowledge how far we have come and the major changes that we have made in our lives. Keeping this in mind can be incredibly motivating and remind us that if we can come this far, we can keep going.
