Reaching a goal does NOT require perfection.
Are you having one of those days? Or maybe one of those weeks? Me too…
Sometimes it seems that I get everything set up and I’m ready to take on the world — and then an unexpected challenge appears to knock me off my path.
When we set a goal – for our wellness, productivity, or sanity – it is easy to be derailed when things don’t go as we planned. Too often, a setback becomes a derailment – and our goal fizzles away.
What do we do? How do we keep working toward a goal when we’ve stepped off the path to success?
Here is something I say to myself most days: Life is not about perfection. It’s about moving in the right direction!
Give yourself grace if you stepped off the past yesterday (or this morning)!
Take a breath. Readjust your expectations. Celebrate something (any move toward your goal). And GET BACK ON!!
- Take a breath.
- Readjust your expectations.
- Celebrate something (any move toward your goal).
- GET BACK ON!!
My new book, Stress-Proof Your Life, has strategies to treat stress management as a hard skill and make small changes that can make a big difference in your ability to perform under pressure, feel better, and enjoy life.
Are you getting back on the path? What are you celebrating today? Please share it in a comment below.
Me? I actually wrote a post!! Woo Hoo!
