Does your dream seem unachievable? Try this
Focus on what you can do today and forget about tomorrow.
You want to succeed. You want to see growth. You want to make your dreams come true. So you think about how you can get there. The road seems long and near impossible to wade through. So you become overwhelmed. Maybe, if you feel how I felt today, you lose a bit of your motivation. Don’t worry. I found my way back on track. So can you.
Thinking too much about your end goals aren’t always the most productive thing to do. You see, in order for you to get to your desired destination all you have to do is keep putting in the work. As long as you show up every day you will see progress.
You can’t control what happens tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. All you can do is decide how you want to spend this hour and the next one.
By staying present you allow yourself to focus on the work right in front of you and avoid the overwhelming feeling of looking ahead. I had to remind myself of that today. I got caught up in worrisome thoughts and questions about my own ability to make it. Luckily, I managed to snap out of it by doing the math. What does it take for me to get to where I want to go? And how can I work towards that today?
It’s going to take a lot of steps, all I can do is take one at a time.
