Monitoring your progress is always good to help you stay on track with your growth. I love to see where I started and how far I’ve come. Often times we get so overwhelmed with wanting to grow more til’ we fail to realize our progress. It may be a nominal amount of progress, but progress is progress…track it. It can possibly help you foresee your future results.
It’s hard to imagine yourself making it to the top when you’re just starting off. You may think that your hard work won’t be recognized when your journey begins…in due time trust me it will. Keeping the course will open up the pathway to succeed. If you’re working towards a victory, please don’t give up. Even most of the greats were once where you are and they now are reaping the benefits of their hard work. Nothing comes easy, doing absolutely nothing does…….be a doer, not a thinker.
We often times beat ourselves up because things don’t fall into place when we think it should. Nobody wants to work for shit these days. Well news flash, if you don’t work your ass off to get it, you’re better off working for the next person to help them grow their business. It makes you appreciate and take pride in what you’ve accomplished after the blood, sweat and tears. The failures, and the naysayers should be your motivation. Don’t beat yourself up when the pieces fall apart and you find yourself scrapping what you’ve started, all to just start over again. Work hard, be motivated and kick ass..Yea, I know it’s easier said than done. But do more and say less and allow your hard work to speak for itself.
Rushing progress can sometimes backfire in your face. We rush into working so feverishly and expect all of the chains to connect only to find out the links weren’t put together well enough. And after your hard rushed work, no one notices it. We all yarn for growth. We are all eager to take the next step forward to reach that certain goal or success level. Nothing happens over night, and trust, this is a true statement. I would love to take the short cut to success or to reach a personal goal, but I can’t. There are no short cuts for me to take. So I try to prioritize my time and work diligently to accomplish my goals towards success. I don’t mind taking the stairs up, so long as I make it to the top. And after my walk up I can ride the elevator back down.
I’m in competition with myself. I’ve come so far from where I once stood. I must continue to get further. My support comes from within, my motivations come from within, and my challenges come from within. When I look over my shoulder, I expect to see the old me further than I was yesterday. I expect to see growth, no matter the growth. I’m determined to make myself proud of me.
