Cut Yourself Some Slack

Maybe you thought you would have more accomplished by now.

After all you’ve been at this whole business thing for HOW LONG? Shouldn’t you be raking it in at this point?

Shouldn’t you have the mansion with the indoor swimming pool complete with a garage full of stretch limos?

Okay, so maybe your expectations haven’t been THAT GRAND. But STILL.

Instead of feeling disappointed in yourself, I implore you to take a moment to think about how far you’ve come. If you’re further along in your goals now than you were a year ago (or 5 years ago), then that’s progress to be proud of! As long as you are working hard, and things are moving forward (no matter how gradually), you get to pat yourself on the back.

The only time you need to be worried is when you start to think you are done. Don’t ever start to think that there is no more work, and your goals have been completed.

Sorry darling, there is no finish line. You will keep on going, keep moving forward, and keep expanding and improving on those original goals of yours. That’s the point. As long as you have the strength to not give up, and the motivation to press on, impatience and disappointment won’t creep in.

So keep pressing on my friend. You’re doing alright. Go ahead and cut yourself some slack.
