I have recently been struggling with the fact that as each day comes to an end, I feel that I have not learnt everything I should have.
I have begun a start up business and am also trying to figure out a network marketing business (while working at a magazine as well) and with all the learning I need to do, I constantly don’t feel I ever know enough.
Even if I put all of my energy into learning from early morning to late at night, I still don’t feel like I’ve achieved anything.
What a bad attitude to have!
It dawned on me yesterday that this is such a pessimistic way to be! I need to focus on what I have learnt, what I have got done and take it day by day. I will never know it all, but if I put all of my effort into something, then I think I deserve a bit of self praise – don’t you agree?
Are you like this also? Constantly trying to get so much done in a day? Learning new things and expecting to reach new goals etc. every single day? Well you’re not alone!
Too often we focus on major goals and feel as if we have accomplished nothing if we haven’t reached them yet.
So let’s make a pact – in 2015 we have to live each day and reflect on the accomplishments of that day. While it’s good to have a long term goal we are working towards, we still need to stop each day and say to ourselves:
Hey, I saw how much work you put in today… although you may be exhausted, look at how much you got done! Everything you learnt and did today is getting you closer to where you want to be – good job, you rock!
2015 will be a great year for us if we start to praise ourselves more and stop beating ourselves up about not knowing or doing everything all at once!
You got this. Remember that.
Lots of love xx
